The Cayman Islands also had eight bilateral tax information agreements at that time, including the recent agreements with the Nordic countries. At that time, the Cayman Islands` tax information exchange network included four of the seven G7 countries and seventeen of the 30 OECD member countries. Jersey may also exchange tax information with other countries under double taxation treaties, the multilateral convention and EU Member States under the EU Savings Tax Directive. They all expressed their participation in the harmful tax practices initiative and their commitment to the principles of transparency and effective exchange of information. They must now put in place and implement a comprehensive anti-money laundering legal framework, applicable to all sectors of their offshore financial services sector, as well as legislative provisions facilitating the exchange of information on tax matters with foreign jurisdictions directly through their competent authority. A TIEAs request template has been developed to assist the competent authorities of TIEA partners in requesting information. It is available in English and French as well as Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Turkish. The first steps towards Tax Information Exchange Agreements (TIEAs) were taken in March 2009, when the Government of the Cayman Islands made arrangements to allow access to comprehensive tax assistance with 20 countries, including the majority of Cayman`s major trading partners.

A large number of bilateral agreements have been based on this agreement (see below). The following information relates to several people`s laws on tax havens, which reflect the status of their policies and mechanisms for exchanging confidential information with other countries in these circumstances or circumstances. FATCA requires U.S.
financial institutions to withhold a portion of payments to foreign financial institutions that do not agree to identify and disclose information about U.S. account holders. The IGA between the U.S. and France is the Model 1A version, which means that in France, FFIs are required to directly notify tax information about U.S. account holders to the French government, which transmits this information to the IRS. The IRS will reciprocate with similar information about French account holders. The agreement gave rise to the development of the OECD to combat harmful tax practices. . . .
