As of January 1, 2020. With the introduction of the Multilateral Instrument (MLI) and more specifically the Principal Purpose Test (PPT) in the MLI, many tax treaties will change as of that date.
 
As a result, your company might be risking higher taxes because certain tax treaty benefits could be refused.
 
If you are using international company structures that make use of treaty benefits, you might be at risk of being affected by the MLI. Tax treaty benefits may include a lower withholding tax rate for dividends, interest payments and royalties, but also the beneficial allocation of taxation rights and the determination of fiscal residence.
 
As the first tax treaties are set to change as of January 1, 2020, the time to take action is now!
