Bern, 07.05.2019 - The protocol amending the double taxation agreement (DTA) with respect to taxes on income and capital between Switzerland and Ecuador entered into force on 17 April 2019. It brings the administrative assistance clause into line with the international standard for the exchange of information upon request.
The protocol amending the DTA was signed in Quito on 26 July 2017 and entered into force on 17 April 2019. It adapts the DTA concluded with Ecuador in 1994 to the current situation and applies the international standard for the exchange of information on request. The new provisions will apply to requests for information concerning tax years from 1 January 2020. The DTA contributes to improving tax cooperation between the two countries.
