Recent OECD Initiatives to Resolve International Tax Disputes

 

The Release of a Public Discussion Draft for the Upcoming Tokyo Consultation

08-Feb-2006 - The OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (the CTPA) is organising, in cooperation with BIAC, a consultation between business and government on recent OECD initiatives to improve dispute settlement procedures under tax treaties.  The consultation meeting will take place on Monday, 13 March 2006, in Tokyo and will bring together representatives from the private sector and senior government officials of OECD Member countries.

This event will be the OECD’s final consultation on the topic of international tax disputes prior to releasing guidance on this subject.  The consultation will focus primarily on the recently released Public Discussion Draft and draft Manual on Effective Mutual Agreement Procedures, which proposes a supplementary dispute resolution mechanism and other improvements to the Mutual Agreement Procedures (MAP) process (see agenda).  The consultation is open to all those who have provided comments on the July 2004 progress report on Improving the Process for Resolving International Tax Disputes and to additional interested parties.  Anyone who has not received a specific invitation but who wishes to participate in the consultation should contact Paul Mulvihill, Advisor – Dispute Resolution, CTPA at paul.mulvihill@oecd.org.  The OECD reserves the right to limit the number of participants if needed and priority will then be given to persons who sent comments on the Progress Report or the new discussion draft.

On each issue, the OECD Secretariat will provide an overview with proposals and then selected business commentators will be invited to comment and present their experiences and views.  If there is an aspect you are particularly interested in, please let us know before the event.  After the initial presentation, all participants are encouraged to participate in the open discussion of each issue.
