Maltese Finance Minister, Edward Scicluna, has stressed that the country’s international tax regime is in line with the OECD’s BEPS proposals.
The OECD has recently introduced a new interactive tax map, which provides information on the results of peer reviews of over 140 countries on how they are addressing issues related to tax transparency and BEPS. According to the government, the OECD’s assessment shows that, in Malta, there are no harmful features for BEPS purposes.
The Minister said: “Indicators just published by the OECD portray Malta as a tax-compliant jurisdiction. This is exactly what we have been stating all along. The OECD report clearly shows that Malta has been upholding the international agreed standards and providing the necessary exchange of information for investigations when it comes to tax-related issues.”
