Three jurisdictions removed, three added to EU list of non-cooperative jurisdictions


				15.03.2018
						On 13 March 2018, the Council of Europe removed Bahrain, the Marshall Islands and Saint
Lucia from the list and added the Bahamas, Saint Kitts and Nevis and the US Virgin Islands.

The EU's list is intended to promote good governance in taxation worldwide, maximising efforts
to prevent tax avoidance, tax fraud and tax evasion. It was prepared during 2017 in parallel with
work within the OECD.

At the same time, the Council decided to add Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, the British Virgin
Islands and Dominica to annex II. This was justified by commitments made to address
deficiencies identified by the EU. Those commitments were assessed by EU experts, and their
implementation will be carefully monitored.

The process continues with regard to an eighth Caribbean jurisdiction, the Turks and Caicos
Islands, from which a commitment at a high political level is being sought by 31 March 2018 to
address EU concerns.
