Belize: Double Tax Treaties

Introduction

Belize has double tax treaties with the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark and the countries of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

In 2010, aiming to be removed from the OECD grey list, Belize signed tax information exchange agreements (TIEAs) with the United Kingdom, Australia, the Netherlands, Ireland, France, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Greenland, Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Portugal. Since then, Belize has signed TIEAs with Mexico (2011) and Poland (2013).
