Liechtenstein: Double Tax Treaties

Introduction

Until mid 2009, Liechtenstein had just one double tax avoidance treaty, with neighbouring Austria. There is also a partial tax agreement in place with Switzerland, known as the Agreement with the Swiss Confederation on Various Tax Questions of 1965, which contains reciprocal agreements with a number of Swiss cantons (St. Gallen, Graubunden, Fribourg, Schaffhausen) and provides for tax-free donations for public, welfare, and charitable purposes. Since 2009 however, Liechtenstein has sought to create a network of tax treaties incorporating OECD standards on tax transparency and information exchange (see below).
