Markus Deutsch - Aktuelles



The OECD Council approved yesterday the contents of the 2014 Update to the OECD Model Tax Convention. The Update, which was previously approved by the Committee on Fiscal Affairs on 26 June, will be incorporated in a revised version of the Model Tax Convention that will be published in the next few months.


The 2014 Update reflects work on the Model Tax Convention that was carried out between 2010 and the end of 2013; it does not, therefore, include any results from the ongoing work on the BEPS Action Plan.


The 2014 Update includes the changes to Article 26 and its Commentary that were approved by the OECD Council on 17 July 2012.  It also includes the final version of a number of changes that were previously released for comments.


The introduction to the contents of the 2014 Update provides information on how comments received on some of the discussion drafts listed above were dealt with. In addition, the reports on “Tax treaty issues related to emissions permits/credits” and “Issues related to Article 17 of the OECD Model Tax Convention” provide additional background for some of the changes included in the Update (these reports will be added to the section of the full version of the Model Tax Convention that includes previous reports on the Model Tax Convention).
