Legal & tax conformity

Liechtenstein pursues a clear strategy of tax conformity and plays an active role in the relevant bodies. Implementation of the standards was positively received by the Global Forum. Liechtenstein is continuously and actively expanding the network of bilateral double taxation conventions.

At the international level, the introduction of the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) as well as various double taxation conventions and tax information treaties, inter alia with Germany, Switzerland, Austria as well as the USA, safeguard legal security and recognition. Banks, insurers, fiduciaries, investment fund companies, asset managers and common-benefit foundations all value the Liechtenstein financial centre. The Principality of Liechtenstein is stable and sovereign, its financial centre is transparent, secure and professional.

Liechtenstein was one of the first states to commit itself to the applicable international standards on transparency and tax cooperation and pursues a clear strategy of tax compliance. This is underscored inter alia by the Liechtenstein Declaration and the Financial Centre Strategy of the Government. The country plays an active part in the relevant OECD and Global Forum bodies, and is a recognised partner within the international community. Implementation of the standards pertaining to the exchange of tax information in Liechtenstein was positively received by the Global Forum. Liechtenstein has also adopted the OECD measures concerning the undesired shifting of corporate profits (BEPS), and has put these into practice. Liechtenstein recognises the legitimate tax claims of partner states. At the same time, Liechtenstein protects the legitimate interests of clients of the financial centre, such as the right to confidentiality and privacy. By means of double taxation agreements, it advocates uniform standards and thus essentially the avoidance of double taxation of income from cross-border activities. Clear rules, predictability and equal treatment create legal certainty and the ability to plan for the future, both for states as well as for companies and individuals. Liechtenstein encourages its partner states to continue working towards these common principles, thereby reducing disparities in treatment and ensuring full mutual access to markets.
