Synthesised Texts of the MLI and Australian Tax Treaty
The Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (the MLI) entered into force for Australia on 1 January 2019. The ATO is preparing a synthesised text for each of Australia’s tax treaties that are modified by the MLI. A synthesised text helps users of the tax treaty understand how the MLI changes the particular tax treaty. It does not constitute a source of law. The authentic legal texts of the tax treaty and the MLI take precedence and remain the legal texts applicable. The synthesised texts to be published in this instance are that of
- Australia’s tax agreement with the Czech Republic
- Australia’s tax convention with the Republic of Korea
- Australia’s tax agreement with the Russian Federation.
