The World Bank Group, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and The Global Forum a leading multilateral body mandated on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes (Global Forum), have jointly published a new version of the Manual on Exchange of Information (EOI) as a way of supporting tax authorities worldwide.
Exchange of information (EOI) which is an essential tool for tax authorities globally would guide to ensure that all taxpayers pay the correct amount of tax.
This new edition covers a broader range of exchange-of-information tools, such as tax examinations allowing two or more jurisdictions to conduct simultaneous audits of person(s) of common or complementary interest, or tax examinations abroad to collect information in a foreign jurisdiction.
The manual can easily be tailored to address a jurisdiction’s specific needs. It also provides checklists and various template letters to deal with the main forms of communications carried out by EOI units.
The leading bodies noted that French, Spanish and Portuguese versions of the manual will be published over the coming months.
The previous edition of the manual, issued in 2013 by the Global Forum and the World Bank Group, was dedicated to exchange of information on request and spontaneous exchange of information.
