Andorra Approves Financial Account Information Exchange Agreement with the EU — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

On 20 October 2016, the Andorran parliament approved the agreement with the EU providing for the automatic exchange of tax information on financial accounts of each other’s residents. The agreement was signed on 12 February 2016 and will replace the 2004 agreement whereby Andorra agreed to put in place measures equivalent to those provided for by the EU Savings Directive. The revision of the 2004 agreement became necessary now that the EU Savings Directive has been repealed and replaced by the amended provisions of the EU Administrative Assistance Directive.
