My right honourable friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Stephen Timms) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.
A new double taxation convention and protocol with the Netherlands was signed on 26 September 2008. A new tax information exchange agreement with the Isle of Man was signed on 29 September 2008, alongside an arrangement amending the 1955 double taxation arrangement with the Isle of Man.
After signature, the text of each of these instruments was deposited in the Libraries of both Houses and made available on the HM Revenue and Customs website. The texts will be scheduled to draft Orders in Council and laid before the House of Commons in due course.
