EU tax blacklist

Fiji, Vanuatu, Marshall Islands added to EU tax blacklist

The 28-nation list was set up in December 2017 in a bid to crackdown on tax avoidance by corporations and wealthy individuals.

Tax jurisdictions alleged to be not complying with EU regulations face restrictions on transactions with the bloc and reputational damage.

The Pacific countries which were given a year to change their tax rules, join Samoa, American Samoa and Guam on the blacklist.
