List of non cooperative States and Juridictions

In June 2015, the European Commission created a blacklist of tax havens. This list denounces political entities refusing tax transparency and administrative cooperation with certain countries in Europe.This list is a simple compilation of the 18 European black list of 28 member countries of the European Union. Some lists have not been updated for several years.

In the end, the “raw” list included 85 non-cooperative jurisdictions, about 1 country of 2, MEPs therefore adjusted the criteria for selection to arrive at a figure more acceptable: retain only jurisdictions whose names appeared on at least ten lists, regardless of the selection criteria used by its member states.

  1. Andorra,
  2. Anquille,
  3. Antigua and Barbuda,
