Strategizing International Tax Best Practices – by Keith Brockman

The Toolkit on Tax Treaty Negotiation (the “Toolkit”), has been prepared in the framework of the Platform for Collaboration on Tax (the “PCT”) by the IMF, the OECD, the UN and the WBG (the “PCT Partners”).

Date and time:Wednesday, November 4, 2020 9:00 am 
Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00) 
Change time zone
Duration:2 hours 30 minutes

Please join The Platform for Collaboration on Tax (PCT) for the public consultation webinar of its draft Toolkit on Tax Treaty Negotiations. The toolkit authors and expert speakers will discuss how the toolkit can help developing countries, followed by a demo of the interactive, web-based version of the toolkit and a feedback roundtable with experienced negotiators.

PCT’s draft Toolkit on Tax Treaty Negotiations is a joint effort to provide capacity-building support to developing countries on tax treaty negotiations, building on existing guidance, particularly from the UN Manual for the Negotiation of Bilateral Tax Treaties between Developed and Developing Countries (the “UN Manual”). The Toolkit provides tax officials with: 

***Information on the steps involved in tax treaty negotiations 
***Practical tips for treaty negotiators on the conduct of negotiations and negotiation styles 
***Easy access to already publicly available resources that treaty negotiators will find useful 

The design of the Toolkit also allows regular updates and improvements based on the feedback from users and experienced negotiators. 

The PCT released the draft toolkit for public feedback from June 29th to September 24th, 2020 through its website and the KSP-TA hub. In addition to written comments, this virtual workshop aims to gather further feedback from stakeholders, particularly treaty negotiating teams.

The Toolkit represents a joint effort to provide capacity-building support to developing countries on tax treaty negotiation, building on previous contributions and reducing duplication and inconsistencies.
