Bilateral tax treaties are commonly signed by developing countries, but they can present risks to government revenue collection in the mining sector and beyond. An understanding of good treaty practice–exploring how some countries have negotiated, reviewed, or modified their treaties to better protect their tax base–can help lay the foundations for fairer and more sustainable tax treaties.
The Inter-American Center of Tax Administration (CIAT) and the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals and Sustainable Development (IGF) are joining forces in this workshop to promote stronger bilateral tax treaty practice in CIAT member countries.
This event will share tools to empower decision-makers and negotiators to improve their tax treaty practice and safeguard their right to tax income. The organizers will create a space for tax administration officials to discuss critical issues on bilateral tax treaties including its impact in the mining sector.
