OECD welcomes Uruguay’s commitment to OECD tax information exchange standards

 

03/04/2009 - The OECD welcomed today the formal endorsement by Uruguay of its tax information exchange standards.

In a letter to Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the OECD, Uruguay’s Finance Minister, Alvaro García, informed the OECD that Uruguay formally endorses the OECD’s standards on transparency and exchange of information, as set out in the 2005 version of Article 26 of the OECD Model Tax Convention.

He confirmed that Uruguay is incorporating this standard in the treaties it is currently negotiating and in future agreements. Uruguay expects to submit one or more of these agreements for ratification later this year.

“I am pleased that Uruguay is joining a growing number of nations willing to co-operate in fighting tax evasion and other tax abuses,” said Gurría.

 

The above would imply that the OECD would include Uruguay among the financial centres that have committed to implement the OECD standard but which have not yet done so.

 

La OCDE dió la bienvenida a la decisión de la República del Uruguay de adoptar formalmente su estándar para el intercambio de información fiscal.

 

En una misiva al Secretario General de la OCDE, Angel Gurría, el Ministro de Hacienda, Álvaro García, informó a la OCDE que el Uruguay adopta formalmente los estándares de transparencia e intercambio de información fiscal, tal como lo establece el Artículo 26 de la versión 2005 del  Modelo Convenio de Impuestos de la OCDE.

 

Confirmó, además, que el Uruguay está incorporando dicho estándar en los tratados fiscales que se encuentra negociando actualmente, y lo incluirá en los acuerdos futuros. Se tiene interés de ratificar uno o varios acuerdos este año.

"Estamos complacidos que El Uruguay se una al creciente número de países que desean cooperar para combatir la evasión fiscal y otros abusos fiscales" dijo Gurría.

 

Lo anterior implicaría que la OCDE ubicaría al Uruguay entre los centros financieros que se han compremetido a adoptar el estándar OCDE pero que aun no lo han hecho.
