Germany signs Jersey tax deal

Germany has made an agreement with Jersey for the exchange of information for tax purposes.

Germany is the latest country to have signed an agreement with Jersey over
the exchange of information for tax purposes.

The total number of agreements signed by jurisdictions committed to working
with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries
since the beginning of 2007 has reached 16.

The recent signing reaffirms Jersey’s commitment to implementing
international standards of transparency and exchange of information relating to
tax matters.

This is the third tax information agreement by Jersey which already has
arrangements with Netherlands and the United States.

A recent report
Tax
co-operation: Towards a Level Playing Field – 2007 Assessment by the Global
Forum on Taxation’,
shows the progress made by OECD countries implementing
the transparency and exchange of information for tax policies.
