Liechtenstein has signed an additional DTA with Monaco

This post is also available in: Deutsch

On 29 June 2017 the Government of the Principality of Liechtenstein issued a press release stating that Liechtenstein has signed an additional Double Taxation Agreement (DTA) with Monaco. The DTA between Liechtenstein and Monaco is intended to increase the legal certainty for investors and strengthen the close cooperation between the two countries.

The DTA is based on the current international OECD standard. It takes into account the results of the OECD/G20 BEPS project, which is intended to prevent tax avoidance in a cross-border context. The exchange of information is regulated based on international standards, whereby the automatic exchange of information (AEOI) will be carried out in accordance with the framework of the Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement (MCAA).

We assume that the new DTA with Monaco will be approved this year by the Landtag of the Principality of Liechtenstein, which would allow it to enter into effect as of 1 January 2018.
