"Won't Be Long Before Sir Bailhache Has His Own Monument"
Jersey has greed to openly share tax information with Belgium.
External Relations Senator, Sir Philip Bailhache signed an information exchange agreement at the Residence of the Ambassador for the Kingdom in London today.
The TIEA was also signed by the Belgian Deputy Prime Minister, His Excellency Mr Didier Reynders.
Senator Bailhache said: “We attach great importance to the signing of this TIEA with Belgium. While Jersey is not a part of the European Union, we are part of Europe and we have long pursued a good neighbour policy towards the Member States of the EU. It is also further evidence of Jersey’s full commitment to compliance with the current international standards on transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes.”
