OECD - Compliance ratings for tax transparency of 10 jurisdictions 

August 4: A global forum of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) today announced the release of “peer review” reports demonstrating progress by countries toward implementation of an international standard for exchange of information on request—tax transparency—and issued compliance ratings for 10 jurisdictions.

An OECD release reveals the following findings under the “Phase 2” peer review of the 10 jurisdictions:

  • Five jurisdictions—Andorra, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Indonesia, and Saint Lucia—received an overall rating of “partially compliant.”
  • Four jurisdictions—Chile, Macedonia, Montserrat, and St. Kitts and Nevis—received an overall rating of “largely compliant.”
  • Mexico was rated as “compliant.”

The OECD release provides updates on the status of other jurisdictions.

With the release of these reviews, the OECD Global Forum has now completed 143 peer reviews and assigned compliance ratings to 64 jurisdictions.

Additional peer reviews will be completed late October 2014, at which time, a much higher level of tax transparency worldwide is expected.
