During the 2 to 4 November meeting of the OECD Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes, new peer review reports for 17 jurisdictions were published. In addition to the reports, a special fast-track review procedure was agreed to during the meeting that enables the Global Forum to recognize, by mid-2017, progress made and to assess changes being made in various jurisdictions. This procedure is meant to allow jurisdictions to avoid being listed as non-cooperative jurisdiction if they have not received a final rating or have received a non-compliant rating.
The reports published and their results are as follows:
Phase 1 Report for:
Phase 2 Reports for:
Combined Phase 1 and 2 Report for:
Supplementary Phase 1 Reports for:
Supplementary Phase 2 Reports for:
The reports are produced as part of a two-phase review process for compliance with the international standard for information exchange. The Phase 1 report includes an evaluation of a jurisdiction's legal and regulatory framework for transparency and exchange of information, and provides recommendations for improvement. Jurisdictions deemed to have a sufficient framework in place move on to Phase 2, which includes an evaluation of the actual implementation of the standard for information exchange, with a compliance rating given along with recommendations for improvement. The compliance ratings include Non-Compliant, Partially Compliant, Largely Compliant, or Compliant.
