Works of Heads of the OECD Tax Administration Meeting on 23-24 October, Dublin, Ireland

From the OECD website; it is all about “tax compliance”:

“24/10/2014 – The OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project and the move to automatic exchange of financial account information took centre stage when Heads of Tax Administration met on 23-24 October in Dublin, Ireland.

Nearly forty delegations, including international and regional tax organisations, participated in the Ninth Meeting of the OECD Forum on Tax Administration (FTA) and agreed that ever greater co-operation will be necessary to implement the results of the BEPS project and automatic exchange of information. Specifically they agreed:
•A strategy for systematic and enhanced co-operation between tax administrations;
•To invest the resources needed to implement the new standard on automatic exchange of information; and
•To improve the practical operation of the mutual agreement process.

The communiqué released at the close of the meeting contains more details and contains links to the following publications that have just been released by the FTA:
