Strategizing International Tax Best Practices – by Keith Brockman

The Dutch Secretary of Finance has thoughtfully issued a Decree, whereby the notification period for informing the tax administration of the Country-by-Country (CbC) report for tax year 2016 is delayed until Sept. 1, 2017.

it is intended to officially confirm that the Dutch tax authorities will accept CbC reports that have been filed in other jurisdictions on a voluntary basis (parent surrogate filing) in line with guidance issued by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

The Dutch State Secretary of Finance expects that it may take until August 2017 to have clarity on the automatic exchange of information matching process for reporting fiscal years starting on or after 1 January 2016.

Hopefully, other countries will follow this practical approach, as it represents a win-win for taxpayers and the tax administration.  However, other countries still need to be reviewed, especially for US multinationals, to verify additional notifications required by Dec. 31, 2016.
