EU updates list of non-cooperative jurisdictions
Released 22 February 2021
The European Council has amended the EU's list of non-cooperative jurisdictions for tax purposes, removing Barbados and adding Dominica to the Annex I blacklist.
The list includes jurisdictions worldwide that either have not engaged in a constructive dialogue with the EU on tax governance or have failed to deliver on their commitments to implement the reforms necessary to comply with a set of objective tax good governance criteria. These criteria relate to tax transparency, fair taxation and implementation of international standards designed to prevent tax base erosion and profit shifting.
