Thar I would say they are similar but not exactly the same.

To "Go Dutch" is about splitting the price, to " go halfsies" may refer to splitting the price or splitting the item.

" I 'd like to have a desert but after that steak and chips I don't think I would finish it, do you want to go halfsies?"

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

True. That is just for paying. Except 'halves' or split, yes - halfsies? Hmmmm
