Switzerland Adopts Dispatch On New DTAs

19 April 2018


The Swiss Federal Council has adopted dispatches on a new double tax agreement (DTA) with Zambia and a protocol to the current agreement with Ecuador.

The DTA with Zambia was signed in August 2017. It replaces a 1954 agreement between Switzerland and the United Kingdom, which had applied to Zambia.

The agreement is intended to create legal certainty and to help develop the economic ties between the two countries. It also takes into account the results of the OECD's BEPS project. It contains an abuse clause and an arbitration clause, along with an administrative assistance clause in accordance with the international standard for the exchange of information upon request.

The protocol to the Ecuador DTA was signed in July 2017. It introduces a provision on the exchange of information upon request that is in line with the international standard.

For the agreements to enter into force, they must now be approved by Parliament.
