France Publishes Synthesized Text of Tax Treaty with China as Impacted by the BEPS MLI — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

The French General Directorate of Public Finance has published the synthesized text of the tax treaty with China as impacted by the Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (MLI). The synthesized text was prepared on the basis of the reservations and notifications submitted to the Depositary by the respective countries. The authentic legal texts of the treaty and the MLI take precedence and remain the legal texts applicable.

The MLI applies for the 2013 France-China tax treaty:

  • with respect to taxes withheld at source on amounts paid or credited to non-residents, where the event giving rise to such taxes occurs on or after 1 January 2023; and
  • with respect to all other taxes levied, for taxes levied with respect to taxable periods beginning on or after 1 March 2023.
