OECD Requests Feedback On Dispute Resolution Peer Reviews

The OECD informed it invites taxpayers to answer questions regarding specific issues related to access to the Mutual Agreement Procedure (MAP), clarity and availability of MAP guidance and the timely implementation of MAP agreements for the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Korea, Norway, Poland, Singapore and Spain.

Background: MAP

The Mutual Agreement Procedure (MAP) peer review and monitoring process under Action 14 of the BEPS Action Plan was launched in December 2016 with the peer reviews of the two first batches already running.

Peer Review Process

The peer review process is conducted in two stages. Under Stage 1, implementation of the Action 14 minimum standard is evaluated for Inclusive Framework members, according to the schedule of review. Stage 2 focuses on monitoring the follow-up of the recommendations resulting from jurisdictions' Stage 1 report, the OECD informed.

Taxpayer Input On Third Batch

The OECD is now gathering input for the Stage 1 peer reviews of the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Korea, Norway, Poland, Singapore and Spain. The input is requested on specific issues relating to access to MAP, clarity and availability of MAP guidance and the timely implementation of MAP agreements for each of these jurisdictions using the taxpayer input questionnaire.

The OECD encouraged taxpayers to complete the questionnaire as it is the taxpayers that are the main users of the MAP. The deadline is 7 July 2017.
