Nordic tax deal signed

August 22, 2014

Hong Kong today signed a tax information exchange agreement with six Nordic jurisdictions.


Special Representative for Hong Kong Economic & Trade Affairs to the European Union Linda Lai signed the agreement today in Paris.


It involves Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands.


Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Prof KC Chan welcomed the deal, saying it demonstrates Hong Kong's continued commitment to promoting tax transparency and avoiding double taxation with its trading and investment partners.


The agreement will come into force after the completion of ratification procedures in Hong Kong and the Nordic jurisdictions.
