    Dutch PM Rutte survives censure vote over dividend tax row

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte survived a censure vote in the early hours of Thursday called by lawmakers who believe he withheld information about how his Cabinet reached an unpopular decision to scrap a tax on dividends. Almost all opposition lawmakers believe Rutte misled them when he said in November he did not remember there being any memos prepared during negotiations on the issue. On Tuesday, the government released nearly 60 pages of documentation uncovered after a freedom of information request.

    Dutch PM Rutte under fire as row over dividend tax cut escalates

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was summoned to parliament on Wednesday to explain how the government decided to get rid of a tax opposed by big businesses, after the overnight release of confidential memos describing lobbying by Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) and Shell (LSE: RDSB.L - news) . The opposition has criticised last year's move to scrap a 15 percent tax on dividends paid by multinational businesses. It has now become the centre of a political storm for Rutte, who had repeatedly said he had no memory of documents showing the decision-making process.

    Dutch government memos: Tax cut was 'decisive' for Unilever's headquarters choice

    The scrapping of a Dutch tax on dividends was "decisive" for Unilever in deciding whether it would choose the Netherlands or Britain as its base, according to memos released by the Dutch government as part of a domestic political row on Tuesday. The memos compiled in the summer of 2017 as Prime Minister Mark Rutte was engaged in negotiations to form a government recorded lobbying by both Shell and Unilever against the tax, which forced them to maintain awkward dual share structures in order to ensure British investors were not disadvantaged.

    [$$] Big Consumer Brands Like Raising Prices, but It Is Getting Harder

    The world’s biggest consumer-products makers are struggling to raise prices, as fierce competition keeps a lid on sales growth. Prices fell across P&G’s businesses, with the biggest decline at its Gillette shaving brand, which has slashed prices to fend off low-cost rivals Dollar Shave Club, owned by rival Unilever PLC, and Harry’s. Unilever, which sells Dove soap and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, said it was able to raise prices just 0.1% in the first quarter, while Nestlé SA reported price growth of 0.2%.

    P&G, Nestle, Unilever forgo price increases to move product

    ZURICH/LONDON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Quarterly sales growth at Nestle, Procter & Gamble and Unilever was driven almost entirely by shifting more goods, in a stark illustration of how hard it is for consumer products makers to raise prices in a competitive retail environment. The result has been mounting tension, which recently erupted in a clash between Nestle and European retailers that saw some of the Swiss company's goods briefly taken off store shelves. Nestle's 2.8-percent underlying sales growth only got a 0.2 percent boost from higher prices, and Unilever's 3.4 percent growth just a 0.1 percent lift.

    Unilever confident shareholders will agree to go Dutch

    Unilever (ULVR.L)(UNc.AS) believes shareholders will support it moving its primary headquarters to the Netherlands, even though there is some reticence among investors who may be forced to sell their shares. The Anglo-Dutch consumer goods group announced last month that it had picked Rotterdam over London for its main home base after collapsing its dual-headed structure, seen as a blow to the British government a year before Brexit. "Yes, there are one or two investors who are negatively impacted, but all of the investors we've seen -- and it's a tremendous broad sweep of our investors -- support the board's decision," Chief Financial Officer Graeme Pitkethly told Reuters on Thursday, following release of Unilever's first-quarter sales figures.
