Even when an arbitration procedure is sought, the EU review found that there may be many shortcomings in the system, including the delay or absence of the creation of the Advisory Committee and the lack of agreement on the appointment of the Chair of the Advisory Committee, which delays or prevents the process. Once the request has been received, the BZSt verifies that the conditions for the implementation of a mutual agreement procedure are met. The transnational part of a mutual agreement procedure shall only be implemented if the request is admissible and duly reasoned and if no satisfactory solution can be found in Germany. Letter from BMF of 9 October 2018, fact sheet on international agreement and arbitration procedures in the field of income and wealth taxes. This form replaces the form of 13 July 2006 – IV B 6-S 1300-340/06 -, BStBL I 2006, p. 461. The provisions of the BMF`s letter of 5 April 2017 – IV B 5 – S 1304/0-04 – BStBl I 2017, 707 have been added to paragraph 5 of the information sheet of 9 October 2018. Amendments to the previous factsheet are set out in paragraph 1.1.3 (Scope of the EU Arbitration Convention), paragraph 1.4 (contact details of the competent authority) and paragraph 2.2.2 (information on time limits for filing claims in double taxation conventions). Where measures taken by one or more countries give rise to taxation which does not comply with the DBA (in particular double taxation), the taxable person concerned may request a mutual agreement procedure. In Germany, the Bundeszentralamt für Steuern (BZSt) is the competent authority for the implementation of these procedures. If all the conditions are met, the countries concerned shall endeavour to resolve the tax dispute by mutual agreement.
This generally avoids double taxation. Requests for the opening of cartel proceedings under a DBA or the European Arbitration Convention can be addressed to the following address of the DNT: it is often difficult to reach an amicable negotiated agreement. This article explains how institutions can reduce this difficulty. It begins with a fundamental dichotomy of bargaining situations between zero-sum cases and mixed grounds. This dichotomy is then linked to the diversity of goods – public, CPR, club and private – that the actors try to produce through negotiation. The article then systematically links goods and institutions with a focus on international regimes and international organizations. Finally, the problem of institution-building is examined from different analytical angles. Links between fanpages are directed, because the “liken” of a page is a one-way action. This is different from friendship relationships between the personal pages of two Facebook users, because “Friending” only takes place if there is a mutual agreement.
