Aruba, Barbados, and Bermuda to be Removed from EU Non-Cooperative List — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

According to recent reports, Aruba, Barbados, and Bermuda are to be removed from the EU list of non-cooperative jurisdictions during an EU Council meeting scheduled for 17 May 2019. The countries were added to the list in March 2019 due to a failure to implement commitments they had made to the EU by the agreed deadlines ({News-2019-03-29/A/5-previous coverage}), although this was contested. If the three jurisdictions are removed, twelve jurisdictions will remain listed, including American Samoa, Belize, Dominica, Fiji, Guam, Marshall Islands, Oman, Samoa, Trinidad and Tobago, United Arab Emirates, US Virgin Islands, and Vanuatu.
