The amending protocol to the double taxation agreement with Italy came into force
Bern, 28.07.2016 - The amending protocol to the double taxation agreement (DTA) between Switzerland and Italy came into force on 13 July 2016 following the conclusion of the ratification procedures in both countries. The agreement now complies with the current international standard on the exchange of information on request.
On 23 February 2015, Switzerland and Italy signed an amending protocol to the 1976 agreement for the avoidance of double taxation and the regulation of other issues with respect to taxes on income and capital. The protocol brings into line the DTA with the international standard on the exchange of information on request.
The new provision on the exchange of information on request applies as of the entry into force of the protocol, the 13 July 2016, to facts and circumstances that arose from the date of signing, i.e. 23 February 2015.
