Notes

 
The 2017 Global Forum review found that there were some concerns with Qatar’s problems replying to EOI requests (GF 2017: 73). However, such problems did not relate to the Tax Departments ability to obtaining information from information holders (ibid.). Moreover, "the Tax Department has broad access powers to obtain all types of relevant information including [...] banking information from any person for both domestic tax purposes and in order to comply with their obligations under Qatar’s EOI agreements" (ibid.: 74).
