EU Code of Conduct

The Council of the EU published its latest report, summarized and referenced herein:

  • The US complies with all the EU Member States re: Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) due to its double tax treaty network, FATCA, etc.
  • Guidance on notional interest deductions who wish to adopt a similar method, as not harmful by the Group (no safe harbor; general criteria)
  • Delisting certain non-cooperative jurisdictions
  • Monitoring implementation of commitments by jurisdictions
  • Identification of new preferential regimes
  • Further defensive measures for non-cooperative jurisdictions
  • Treatment of partnerships re: substance
  • The way forward; future monitoring, etc.

This is important guidance, as it provides transparency into the tax measures adopted, or not adopted, by various jurisdictions.  It also provides potential measures to incentivize non-cooperative jurisdictions.
