The EU Council announced that eight countries will be removed from the EU’s list of so-called ‘Non-cooperative jurisdictions’ – also referred to as the tax haven blacklist. The eight countries - Barbados, Grenada, the Republic of Korea, Macao SAR, Mongolia, Panama, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates - will now be added to an EU ‘grey list’ of countries to be monitored further. In response to the announcement, Eurodad's Tax Coordinator Tove Maria Ryding said: “It makes no sense to discuss whether Mongolia should go on the black or grey list – it’s not a tax haven, so the country shouldn’t be on any lists at all.
