Nevis: Double Tax Treaties

Introduction

The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis is party to double taxation treaties with Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America (limited to social security benefits).

The St Christopher and Nevis (Mutual Exchange of Information on Taxation Matters) Act, 2009 received the Governor General’s assent on April 1, 2009 and provides for the mutual exchange of information on taxation matters between St. Kitts and Nevis and other jurisdictions.

The bill marked another step in the Federation’s efforts to comply with OECD standards following its pledge on December 31, 2005 to adhere to the OECD principles of transparency and tax information exchange.

The jurisdiction started the ball rolling by announcing in April 2009 that it would soon begin bilateral talks for the exchange of information in the area of financial services with the Netherlands.

In October 2010, St. Kitts and Nevis signed its 18th Tax Information Exchange Agreement, with Germany. Other jurisdictions with which St. Kitts and Nevis has signed a TIEA include (with signature dates):
