The OECD published its “MLI Matching Database” for tax treaties in beta in a preliminary (beta) version. The database makes projections on how the MLI modifies a specific tax treaty covered by the MLI by matching information from Signatories’ MLI Positions.
The Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting ("Multilateral Instrument" or "MLI") offers concrete solutions for governments to close the gaps in existing international tax rules by transposing results from the OECD/G20 BEPS Project into bilateral tax treaties worldwide. The MLI modifies the application of thousands of bilateral tax treaties concluded to eliminate double taxation. It also implements agreed minimum standards to counter treaty abuse and to improve dispute resolution mechanisms while providing flexibility to accommodate specific tax treaty policies, the OECD informed.
On June 7, 2017, over 70 Ministers and other high-level representatives participated in the signing ceremony of the MLI. A number of other jurisdictions have also expressed their intention to sign the MLI soon or are actively working towards signature.
The Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent BEPS (MLI) is a preliminary (beta) version that will be improved over time. The OECD welcomes comments and suggestions from the public on the development of improved versions of the MLI Matching Database.
