Barbados has welcomed a new addition to its network of double tax agreements, following the signature of a new tax treaty with San Marino, an independent micro state bordered entirely by Italy.
The signing of the agreement, by Barbados's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Joseph Goddard, and his counterpart from San Marino, Daniele Bodini, followed on from the initialing of the agreement in July 2012.
On behalf of Barbados, Goddard stated: "Barbados has succeeded in developing a strong, well-regulated international business and financial services sector and we are pleased to be able to add San Marino to our growing treaty network."
He noted that the agreement would enhance cooperation between the two territories, and provide businesses and investors with a beneficial legal framework that will provide clarity with regards to the tax treatment of cross-border income received from bilateral economic activities.
"We have much in common. We are small states with economies heavily dependent on tourism and financial services," Bodini said, further adding that the two territories have collaborated on areas of mutual interest in international fora under the framework of the Forum on Small States.
