Taiwan exists, but only for tax purposes

The Taiwan/UK agreement comes in to force on the 1 April 2003 for corporation tax, and five days later for income tax and capital gains tax.

‘The Agreement in relation to Taiwan was concluded between unofficial representative offices because Her Majesty’s Government does not recognise Taiwan as a state and so does not enter into treaties with the Taiwanese Government,’ stated an Inland Revenue news release.
