The United Nations Handbook on Selected Issues for Taxation of the Extractive Industries by Developing Countries gives guidance to developing countries on key taxation issues during the life-cycle of an investment in the extractive industries, whether it be oil and gas or mining. The Handbook considers the options available to countries in this area, and their likely consequences. It addresses the balance needed to fight tax evasion and avoidance, while still having an attractive investment climate.

Tax aspects of negotiation and renegotiation of contracts

The purpose of this chapter is to provide an overview of some of the tax and fiscal-related issues developing countries face in the negotiation and possible renegotiation of long-term natural resource contracts. It will also provide some additional perspective on the negotiation and renegotiation process. This is intended to help developing-country policymakers and administrators, and to provide information to other stakeholders, on both substantive and procedural approaches to agreements between such countries and the investors they seek to attract in the development of their potential oil, gas, and mineral resources. The background contained in this chapter is intended to provide a broader context for options and approaches available in negotiating long-term contracts.
