September 2016


The Brazilian tax authorities  on September 14, 2016, issued Normative Instruction 1,658/2016 (NI 1,658), adding Ireland to the list of tax havens (‘black list’) and the Austrian holding company regime to the list of privileged tax regimes (‘gray list’). 

The NI also formalizes the definition of ‘significant economic activities’ for purposes of treating the Dutch and Danish holding company regimes as gray-list regimes.
