The aim of this agreement is to promote international cooperation in tax matters through the exchange of information. It was developed by the OECD Global Forum Working Group on Effective Information Exchange. Jersey has signed a number of TIEAs based on this OECD model that allow us to send and receive tax information with more than 30 countries. This figure is expected to increase over time. They help governments enforce national tax laws by allowing the exchange of relevant tax information on request. Unlike double taxation conventions, TIEAs do not always eliminate double taxation of income.
A tieA request for information model has been developed to assist the relevant authorities of TIEA partners in requesting information. It is available in English and French as well as in Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Turkish. In this regard, legal systems may be based on a bilateral agreement between the competent authority for the implementation of the automatic exchange of information in accordance with the common standard of notification or automatic exchange of reports by country on a TIEA, particularly in cases where it is not (yet) possible to automatically exchange information through the relevant authority within the framework of a relevant multilateral agreement.
