Curaçao has four tax agreements in force as reported in its response to the Peer Review Questionnaire. One of those agreements, the agreement with Malta, complies with the minimum standard.

Curaçao joined the MLI in 2017 and the Kingdom of Netherlands deposited its instrument of acceptance on 29 March 2019, listing its non-compliant agreements. The MLI entered into force for Curaçao on 1 July 2019. The agreements modified by the MLI come into compliance with the minimum standard once the provisions of the MLI take effect.

Curaçao indicated in its response to the Peer Review questionnaire that steps have been taken (other than under the MLI) to implement the minimum standard in the arrangement for the Kingdom of Netherlands (applicable between Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten*) and the arrangement between Curaçao and Netherlands, that are governed by the domestic law of the Kingdom of Netherlands.1

Curaçao is implementing the minimum standard through the inclusion of the preamble statement and the PPT.2

No jurisdiction has raised any concerns about their agreements with Curaçao.

← 1. Curaçao indicated in its response that the tax arrangement for the Kingdom of Netherlands governs the relationship between Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten* and Netherlands. This arrangement is similar to the agreement Curaçao has with Netherlands. The MLI cannot be applicable to those arrangements, since they are arrangements governed by the domestic law of the Kingdom of Netherlands.

← 2. For its agreements listed under the MLI, Curaçao is implementing the preamble statement (Article 6 of the MLI) and the PPT (Article 7 of the MLI).
