To ask Her Majesty's Government what is the status of double taxation treaties with (a) Kyrgystan, and (b) Tajikistan; and, if they are not in place, what steps they are taking to implement such treaties; and what is the anticipated timetable for agreement. [HL1068]
The United Kingdom and Tajikistan have agreed to continue to apply the provisions of the UK/USSR double taxation agreement until such time as a new bilateral treaty is signed between our two countries. There is no such understanding with Kyrgyzstan and hence no double taxation agreement.
The Government have no immediate plans to negotiate a new double taxation agreement with either country.
