From the list of “tax havens” may exclude Panama, UAE, South Korea, Barbados, Grenada, Macau, Mongolia and Tunisia, as they agreed to a change in its tax policy.

The EU has proposed to delete eight offshore countries from the “black list”, reports Reuters.

According to the Agency, the list may exclude Panama, UAE, South Korea, Barbados, Grenada, Macau, Mongolia and Tunisia.

It is noted that the EU encouraged to withdraw these countries from the “black list” because they agreed to a change in its tax policy.

Also discussed the removal of Bahrain from the list, however, it ultimately recommended to leave.

The proposal on reduction of the list will discuss on Wednesday, January 17, the ambassadors of the EU countries, and next week, as expected, it will take the Finance Ministers of the European Union.

If the recommendation is confirmed by the EU Ministers, eight “tax havens” will be transferred to the so-called gray list, which includes those who have committed to change their rules of transparency and cooperation in tax matters. Currently, the gray list includes 47 jurisdictions.

We will remind, in December 2017, the European Union approved the list of countries with offshore zones, which came from 17 countries. This decision was taken after yet another leak of offshore documents under the name of Panama Papers.
