With globalization of businesses and expansion of countries’ tax treaty networks over recent years, international tax disputes have substantially increased, both in numbers, complexity and financial interests at stake.

Obviously, an internationally convergent solution to an international tax dispute is much more efficient and therefore preferable than a unilateral, domestic solution like for instance domestic court litigation. Such international solutions, however, are not always available or easily accessible, and often lack transparency, while successful finalization may not be guaranteed. This presents a serious and unwanted empediment to tax certainty for With globalization of businesses and expansion of countries’ tax treaty networks over recent years, international tax disputes have substantially increased, both in numbers, complexity and financial interests at stake. 

For this reason, authorities, both bilaterally and at the level of international organizations, OECD and the EU, are putting a lot of effort in improving accessibility and efficiency of the international instruments presently available for international tax dispute resolution and prevention – mutual agreement procedure (MAP), advance pricing arrangement (APA), mandatory arbitration. At the same time, they are contemplating new, innovative approaches – international collaborative approaches, joint risk assessments and voluntary compliance, joint auditing.
