Content ID:



The Governments of Australia and Jersey have signed an Agreement for the Exchange of Information with Respect to Taxes. The Agreement provides for exchange of information on request in both criminal and civil tax matters.

In addition, Australia and Jersey have signed an Agreement for the Allocation of Taxing Rights with Respect to Certain Individuals and to Establish a Mutual Agreement Procedure in Respect of Transfer Pricing Adjustments. This Agreement will allocate taxing rights over certain income derived by retirees, government employees and students and provide a mechanism to help resolve transfer pricing disputes.

The Agreements were signed by the Australian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, His Excellency John Dauth LVO, and Jersey’s Deputy Chief Minister for Treasury and Resources, Senator Philip Ozouf, in London on 10 June 2009.

The Agreements will enter into force after Australia and Jersey have advised that they have completed their domestic requirements. Legislation for this purpose will be introduced into the Australian Parliament as soon as practicable.

The signing of these Agreements was announced by the Assistant Treasurer, the Hon Nick Sherry, in Media Release No. 073 of 2009.
