Among other things, the following is new on the international tax scene:

  • In October 2023, the DAC8 Directive was adopted by the Council of the EU to strengthen administrative cooperation between the tax administrations of EU Member States. The main changes relate to the notification and automatic exchange of information on the proceeds of crypto-asset transactions, as well as the exchange of binding tax opinions across borders relating to wealthy individuals.


  • The European Commission has published draft directives governing corporate income taxation in Europe. These are the BEFIT Directive, which regulates the taxation of the income of multinational companies based on a common tax base, and the European Union Transfer Pricing Directive, which proposes harmonized transfer pricing rules and harmonized transfer pricing documentation within the EU.


  • In October 2023, the OECD published the text of a new multilateral convention to implement Part A of Pillar 1, which addresses the tax challenges arising from the digitization and globalization of the economy.
