This publication is designed especially for developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The revision updates the widely used 2001 version of the Model. It is important for countries that seek assistance in the negotiation and implementation of modern bilateral double tax treaties reflecting their current circumstances and policy priorities. The Model recognizes that to avoid double taxation of investment, the country where the investment takes place and country of the investor often share taxing rights. The Model helps to move forward in a way that preserves an appropriate share of taxing rights for developing countries. It also promotes cooperation to deal with tax avoidance and evasion. Primary audiences are policy makers, diplomats, the general public, media and universities.

Introduction

The United Nations Model Double Taxation Convention between Developed and Developing Countries (the United Nations Model Convention) forms part of the continuing international efforts aimed at eliminating double taxation. These efforts were begun by the League of Nations and pursued in the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation (OEEC) (now known as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)) and in regional forums, as well as in the United Nations, and have in general found concrete expression in a series of model or draft model bilateral tax conventions.
