Multilateral Instrument: State of affairs


Multilateral Instrument: State of affairs – 9 October 2019

Tax insights

By 1 January 2020, it is expected that 17 of Australia’s tax treaties will be modified by the MLI.

The Multilateral Instrument (MLI) has already started to affect a number of Australia’s double tax treaties with effect from 1 January 2019. As a result of a number of Australia’s treaty partners recently ratifying the MLI, it is expected that by 1 January 2020, 17 of Australia’s tax treaties will be modified by the MLI. This Tax Insights provides a summary of Australia’s affected treaties and the relevant start dates. A key issue arising from the MLI will be to consider the potential impact of the Principal Purpose Test on treaty benefits. In this regard, ATO guidance is expected shortly.
