Opinion by the Co-ordinating Body of the Joint Council of Europe/OECD Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters on the use of the terms “Parties” and “States” in certain articles of the Convention

  • I. The use of terms “Parties”, “States” and “competent authorities” in the Convention

    • 1. In the Joint Council of Europe/OECD Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters, the use of the terms “Parties”, “States” or “competent authorities” has been found not to be always consistent, in particular with regard to the authority to enter into agreements for the implementation of the Convention.

  • II. Opinion of the Co-ordination Body of the Convention

    • 2. Under international law, a treaty shall be interpreted taking into account “any subsequent agreement between the parties regarding the interpretation of the treaty of the application of its provisions” (article 31.3.a of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties). According to paragraph 4 of Article 24 of the Convention on Mutual Administative Assistance in Tax Matters, the Co-ordinating Body (composed of representatives of the competent authorities of the Parties) which monitors the implementation and development of this Convention, under the aegis of OECD, can furnish opinions “on the interpretation of the provisions of the Convention”.

    • 3. Given that in certain articles of the Convention the use of the terms “Parties” and “States” may raise issues of interpretation, the following opinion, which as been agreed by the Co-ordinating Body of the Convention, after having consulted with the OECD Secretariat, and particularly with the Directorate of Legal Affairs, will dispel ambiguity and will clarify the interpretation of these articles:

In accordance with paragraph 4 of article 24 of the Convention, the Co-ordinating Body agrees to the following opinion on the interpretation of the Convention:

When the text of the Convention uses, in particular in paragraph 2 of Article 4; paragraph 2 of Article 11; paragraph 2 of Article 22; and Articles 25 and 26, the terms “Parties” or “States” in relation to agreements concluded for the implementation of the Convention, these two terms are to be understood to refer to the “competent authorities”, as defined in paragraph 1, subparagraph d, of Article 3.

The Kingdom of the Netherlands accepts the Protocol amending the Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters for the European part of the Netherlands, the Caribbean part of the Netherlands (the islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba) and for Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten.

The Kingdom of the Netherlands (for Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten) declares that the reservation referred to in Article 30, paragraph 1 (f) of the Convention of 25 January 1988, is made that retroactive effect in respect of Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten is limited to three years prior to the entry into force of the Protocol of 27 May 2010.

Spanje, 28 september 2012

In the event that this Protocol were to be extended to Gibraltar, Spain wishes to make the following declaration:

  • 1. Gibraltar is a non-autonomous territory for the international relations of which the United Kingdom is responsible and which is subject to a decolonisation process in accordance with the relevant decisions and resolutions of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

  • 2. The authorities of Gibraltar are of a local nature and exercise exclusively internal competences which have their origin and their foundation in a distribution and attribution of competences performed by the United Kingdom, in accordance with the provisions of its internal legislation, in its capacity as sovereign State on which the mentioned non-autonomous territory depends.

  • 3. As a result, should the Gibraltarian authorities participate in the application of this treaty it will be understood as effected exclusively within the scope of the internal competences of Gibraltar, and it cannot be considered to produce any change whatsoever in relation with what was established in the two preceding paragraphs.

  • 4. The procedure set out in the Arrangements relating to Gibraltar authorities in the context of certain international agreements (2007), adopted by Spain and the United Kingdom on 19 December 2007, applies to this Protocol.
