Government accuses GSD of being 'blind to progress' over OECD BEPS Framework

The Government has hit back at the GSD over its statement on Gibraltar's inclusion into the BEPS Framework, accusing the Opposition party of being 'blind to progress'.

Number Six says Gibraltar's membership of the OECD's initiative has arisen directly from the Tax Treaty with Spain, adding it has never suggested it comes from Spain having dropped its claim over Gibraltar.

The Government reiterates that it is because of the Tax Treaty, and recognition of Gibraltar's ongoing compliance with international standards, that Spain has withdrawn its previous objection to the Rock's inclusion.
