August Agreements

In August 2020, more than 2,500 bilateral exchanges were activated for jurisdictions that committed to exchange CBC reports, and the first automatic exchange of CBC reports took place in June 2018. These include exchanges between the signatories of the Convention on Multilateral Competent Authorities (CBC MCAA), between eu Member States, in accordance with the EU Directive 2016/881/EU, and between signatories of bilateral agreements for the exchange of competent authorities under double taxation agreements or exchange of tax information, including 41 bilateral agreements with the United States. Legal systems continue to negotiate CBC reporting agreements and the OECD will issue regular updates to clarify things for MNE groups and tax administrations. The August 1980 agreements, sealed in Szczece on 30 August 1980 in Szczece and in Gdansk on 31 August, were an agreement between Solidarity and the Polish communist authorities. They were signed as part of workers` strikes in Gdansk and other coastal sites in the Baltic Sea earlier this month. The agreements contained the famous “21 postulates” which led, among other things, to the legalization of Solidarity. Since more than 100 legal systems have committed to exchange information within the IRS, exchanges between legal systems are generally based on the multilateral convention on mutual tax assistance (convention), in which more than 100 jurisdictions participate, and the Multilateral Competent Authority`s (CRS MCAA) IRS Convention (CRS MCAA), which is based on Article 6. Legal systems can be based on a bilateral agreement, such as a double taxation agreement or an agreement on the exchange of tax information. In addition, some IRS exchanges will be organised on the basis of the relevant EU directive, agreements between the EU and third countries and bilateral agreements such as the agreements between the UK and the CDOT. The objective of the CBC MCAA is to establish the necessary rules and procedures for the relevant AUTHORITIes of BEPS 13 to implement the cbC reports prepared by the reporting unit of an MNE group and submitted annually to the tax authorities of that unit with the tax authorities of that entity. A specific bilateral relationship under the CBC MCAA will only take effect if the two jurisdictions have implemented the convention, submitted the necessary notifications in accordance with Section 8 and presented themselves to each other.

On 31 August, we will solemnly celebrate the 40th anniversary of the signing of the August Agreements and the creation of the Independent Solidarity Union, which contributed to the fall of communism and the end of the division of the Cold War around the world. “The people of August were soldiers in a relay race to freedom to which today`s free Poland owes eternal gratitude,” Morawiecki wrote, adding: “The great idea of solidarity must be passed on proudly over future generations. In his letter, Mr. Duda recalled that Szczec was one of the main sites of the 1980 protests and stressed that the August agreements laid the foundations for a free Polish state.
