BVI Gets New Status on EU Tax list


On March 13, 2018, the European Union has made changes to the list of non-cooperative tax jurisdictions: three countries were removed and further three were added to it. Bahrain, the Marshall Islands and Saint Lucia were said by the EU Council to have made commitments to answer the EU’s concerns about them, and the Bahamas, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and the US Virgin Islands were, in their turn, included in the list.

The British Virgin Islands, along with Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, and Dominica were added to annex II of the list, which includes territories that have made commitments to reform their tax policies. These jurisdictions are subject to close monitoring. The original list comprised 17 jurisdictions and was announced on December 5, 2017.
