Jersey Finance welcomes the announcement from Jersey’s Government of the signing of a Tax Information Exchange Agreement (TIEA) with New Zealand.

Today’s agreement is the 15th signed by the Jersey Government authorities and it follows earlier bilateral agreements with many leading Western countries including the UK, USA, France, Germany, Netherlands,  Ireland and most recently Australia.  Jersey’s commitment to transparency has been welcomed recently by HM Treasury which called upon other jurisdictions to follow Jersey’s example.
 
The Industry is fully supportive of the series of TIEA signed by the Jersey authorities which are set to continue. They help to reinforce the high standards of Jersey’s finance industry and signal Jersey’s continuing participation in global initiatives designed to strengthen the financial services system and combat fiscal crime.
  
Ends.
