Lithuania Publishes Synthesized Text of Tax Treaty with the Netherlands as Impacted by BEPS MLI — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

Lithuania's State Tax Inspectorate (STI) has published the synthesized text of the tax treaty with the Netherlands as impacted by the Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (MLI). The synthesized text was prepared on the basis of the reservations and notifications submitted to the Depositary by the respective countries. The authentic legal texts of the treaty and the MLI take precedence and remain the legal texts applicable.

The MLI applies for the 1999 Lithuania-Netherlands tax treaty:

  • with respect to taxes withheld at source on amounts paid or credited to non-residents, where the event giving rise to such taxes occurs on or after 1 January 2020; and
  • with respect to all other taxes, for taxes levied with respect to taxable periods beginning on or after 1 January 2020.

MLI synthesized texts of Lithuania's tax treaties can be found on the STI tax treaty webpage.
