1. The competent authorities of the contracting states exchange the information necessary for the implementation of the provisions of this Convention or the national legislation of the contracting states relating to the taxes covered by the Convention, provided that the imposition of this convention is not contrary to the Convention. Article 1 of the convention does not limit the exchange of information. All information received from a State Party is considered secret and is disclosed only to persons or authorities (including courts and administrative services) who participate in the assessment or collection, execution or prosecution, or determination of remedies for taxes covered by this Convention. These persons or authorities may only use this information for such purposes. They may disclose information in the context of public court proceedings or in court decisions. Double taxation agreements (also known as double taxation agreements) are concluded between two countries that define the tax rules for a tax established in both countries. That`s why we offer a first free consultation with a qualified accountant that will give you answers to your questions and help you understand if a double taxation agreement could apply to you and help you save huge amounts of unnecessary taxes. 2. The competent authority endeavours to resolve the matter by mutual agreement with the competent authority of the other State party, by mutual agreement, where the objection appears to be well founded and is not in a position to find a satisfactory solution to resolve the matter in agreement with the competent authority of the other contracting State, in order to avoid tax evasion that is not in accordance with the convention. If the above proposals are acceptable to the Government of the Republic of Korea, I have the honour of proposing that this communication and His Excellency`s response be regarded as an agreement between the two governments in this regard, which will come into force at the same time as the entry into force of this Convention. Korea has social security agreements with Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mongolia, Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Quebec, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States and Uzbekistan from March 2020. Social security agreements are intended to help those who have paid bonuses to national pension plans in two different countries; it allows them to obtain benefits by combining the overall coverage periods in the two countries (i.e.
totalization). However, the agreement needs to be reviewed, as the detailed provisions may vary depending on the agreement. Although the application of double taxation agreements is relatively common, the right to tax relief can be complicated. We contain a collection of global double taxation conventions in English (and other languages, if available) to assist members in their applications. If you`re having trouble finding a contract, call the application team on (0)20 7920 8620 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each double taxation agreement is different, although many follow very similar guidelines, although the details are different.
