OECD seeks input on new tax rules requiring disclosure of CRS avoidance arrangements and offshore structures
14 Dec 2017
G7 Finance Ministers have called on the OECD to start discussing possible ways to address arrangements designed to circumvent reporting under the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) or aimed at providing beneficial owners with the shelter of non-transparent structures. The discussions will include consideration of "model mandatory disclosure rules inspired by the approach taken for avoidance arrangements outlined within the BEPS Action 12 Report."
The OECD is releasing a consultation document seeking stakeholder input on the model mandatory disclosure rules.
Interested members are invited to send their comments on this consultation draft by 15 January 2018 by email to MandatoryDisclosure@oecd.org. They should be addressed to the International Co-operation and Tax Administration Division, OECD/CTPA.
