In October 2022, the Multilateral Instrument was ratified by the Mexican Senate and could enter into force as soon as February 2023. As of the entry into force of this instrument, the Mexican Double Tax Conventions (DTCs) in effect will be automatically modified, without having to enter into the specific negotiation processes with each one of the signatory states. The instrument is, perhaps, the most impressive result of the BEPS Project, as it permits updating DTCs and allows jurisdictions to incorporate BEPS actions into their current DTCs without the need to resort to bilateral negotiations.
