OECD's Multilateral Convention to implement BEPS into Tax Treaties and potential impact on Malta


The Seminar

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) announced the completion of negotiations on a multilateral convention (or multilateral instrument) to implement tax treaty-related base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) recommendations pursuant to Action 15 of the BEPS project.  The multilateral convention is intended to allow governments to implement certain tax treaty measures without renegotiating individual treaties.  Some 2,000 bilateral tax treaties worldwide could be amended in this way.  A significant group of jurisdictions are expected to sign the multilateral convention at the first signing ceremony, which will be held in June 2017 in Paris.

At this seminar we will discuss:

  • The background and scope of the multilateral convention

  • BEPS action items covered by the instrument, including options and minimum standards

  • Potential impact on the Maltese tax treaty network / Malta
