[1] The tax variance as a result of global activities is primarily caused by our operations in countries with a lower statutory tax rate than the statutory tax rate in the Netherlands.
[2] The 2015 non-taxable income included the non-deductible intercompany interest allocated to the United States of America, non-deductible share-based compensation in the Netherlands, non-deductible costs relating to the transfer of certain functions from the Netherlands to Ireland, and a valuation allowance taken in respect of U.S. and Dutch tax losses. The 2014 non-taxable income included the non-deductible intercompany interest allocated to the United States of America, non-deductible share-based compensation in the Netherlands and the non-deductible transaction costs from the ILFC Transaction.
[3] The local statutory income tax expense for our significant tax jurisdictions (the Netherlands, Ireland, the United States of America and Isle of Man) does not differ from the actual income tax expense.
