Common Reporting Standards
Common Reporting Standards
As the world becomes increasingly globalised and cross-border activities become the norm, tax administrations need to work together to ensure that taxpayers pay the right amount of tax to the right jurisdiction.
A key aspect for making tax administrations ready for the challenges of the 21st century is equipping them with the necessary legal, administrative and IT tools for verifying compliance of their taxpayers. Against that background, the enhanced co-operation between tax authorities through AEOI (CRS – COMMON REPORTING STANDARDS) is crucial in bringing national tax administration in line with the globalised economy.

International Taxation – CFC-Rules
Offshore or Onshore
It is surely not forbidden to own an Offshore Company for a legitimate purpose. However, if the only purpose of your Offshore entity is Tax Avoidance or even worse Tax Evasion, you should reconsider all options.
Through latest OECD developments – AEOI and CRS Standards – there is no space for any undeclared income or hidden assets.

Recently, the OECD, together with the BEPS Associates, has attained a further major step towards increasing tax transparency: The implementation package on Country-by-Country Reporting.
The so called Action 13 of the BEPS project, published on 8 June 2015, foresees that tax authorities will automatically exchange key indicators (such as profits, taxes paid, employees and assets of each entity) of Multinational Enterprise Groups with each other, therewith allowing tax authorities to make risk assessments as to the transfer pricing arrangements and BEPS-related risks, which may then serve as a basis for initiating a tax audit.

Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement (MCAA)
With over 100 jurisdictions having committed to exchanging information with each other under the CRS, exchange relationships between jurisdictions are typically based on the multilateral Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters (the “Multilateral Convention”). A list of participating jurisdictions is available.
