  • This Portfolio discusses the competent authority functions and procedures of Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Description

The Tax Portfolio, Income Tax Treaties: Competent Authority Functions and Procedures of Selected Countries (O–Z), No. 6895, discusses the competent authority functions and procedures of Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Each chapter initially focuses on the mutual agreement procedure that is available to taxpayers subject to double taxation, and in that connection discusses such topics as the basic procedure for requesting competent authority relief, statute of limitations issues, the role of Appeals (if any), the small case procedure (if any), interest on deficiencies and refunds, and the possibility of arbitration. If a country also has procedures for Advance Pricing Agreements, those are also considered.

Each chapter then discusses the procedures relating to consultation between competent authorities regarding the interpretation or application of an income tax treaty, exchange of information, and assistance in collection. With respect to exchange of information, each chapter also considers procedures under any tax information exchange agreements to which the country is a party.

For competent authority functions and procedures of the United States, see T.M., Income Tax Treaties: Competent Authority Functions and Procedures of Selected Countries (O–Z).
