Date: 3 - 5 July 2017
Location: Cotonou, Benin
This was the second regional meeting of the Inclusive Framework on BEPS for French speaking countries, following the first regional meeting held in Tunis in November 2016. It was jointly organised by the OECD, the Centre de rencontres et d’études des dirigeants des administrations fiscales (CREDAF), and Le Pôle Stratégies de développement et finances publiques (UNDP/France joint initiative), in partnership with the Benin Revenue Authority (Direction générale des Impôts).
These regional meetings are an integral element of the Inclusive Framework, enabling all countries and jurisdictions to discuss the implementation of the BEPS package on a regional basis, including the development of practical tools and to feed their perspectives into the global dialogue.
This regional meeting highlighted recent developments in transfer pricing and tax treaties, as well as Country-by-Country reporting and the minimum standards relating to tax treaties. It also provided an opportunity to examine the Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting in-depth during a dedicated workshop.
The meeting brought together officials from Finance Ministries and Tax Administrations from French speaking countries, and representatives of the OECD and international organisations active in the countries participating in the meeting. The morning of 3 July 2017 was also open to private sector, civil society and university representatives.
