Qatar signs anti-BEPS Multilateral Convention

Dec 10, 2018

Qatar recently became the 85th state to sign the Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent BEPS.  This Convention now covers 1,500 bilateral tax treaties.

The Convention allows jurisdictions to integrate results from the OECD/G20 BEPS Project into their existing networks of bilateral tax treaties. The Convention will become effective on 1 January 2019 for the first 47 tax treaties concluded among the 15 jurisdictions that have already deposited their acceptance or ratification instrument.
