Legislative bill introduced to enable Hong Kong to enter into standalone TIEAs with other jurisdictions [TAX ALERT]

June 19, 2013

Under the latest international standard on tax transparency, a jurisdiction should be prepared to exchange information in respect of taxpayers on a reciprocal basis pursuant to a comprehensive avoidance of double taxation agreement (CDTA) or a standalone tax information exchange agreement (TIEA).

Furthermore, a jurisdiction’s preference for a CDTA over a TIEA cannot constitute a reason for not entering into a TIEA if the other jurisdiction requests a TIEA.
