EU Blacklist Updated Oct 6, 2020
Today, the European Council updated the list of non-cooperative jurisdictions for tax purposes (the so called EU "blacklist".
The list adopted by the Council on 6 October 2020 is now composed of:
Trinidad and Tobago
US Virgin Islands
Changes from the previous list include
Addition of Anguilla and Barbados
Removal of the Cayman Islands and Oman
If your entity was/is tax domiciled in either Anguilla or Barbados for tax purposes, then producing evidence of tax residency in those jurisdictions will not satisfy the "non-resident" exemption used to satisfy the economic substance regulations in affected jurisdictions.
