Turkey: new draft code against tax evaders in Parliament

10 October, 12:29

    (ANSAmed) - ANKARA, OCTOBER 10 - The Turkish government has submitted a draft code to Parliament that would allow the pursuit of tax evaders in foreign countries. If enacted, the code will put into practice an international agreement on preventing tax evasion carved out by the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) and the European Commission. However, the government has made a reservation restricting Turkey's responsibility only to income, corporate and value added tax, daily Hurriyet reported. The contracting governments will help each other and maintain comprehensive cooperation to combat tax evasion at a time when free movement of capital may lead to such consequences. The agreement allows signatory countries to demand information regarding taxes.
