Agreement in principle on New Tax Convention between Japan and the Kingdom of Denmark
May 15, 2017
1. The representatives of the Government of Japan and the Government of the Kingdom of Denmark have agreed in principle on the new Convention replacing the Convention between Japan and the Kingdom of Denmark for the Avoidance of Double Taxation with respect to Taxes on Income which entered into force in 1968.
2. This new Convention reinforces or introduces provisions for the purposes of clarifying the scope of taxation in the two countries, eliminating international double taxation and preventing tax evasion and avoidance and is expected to promote further mutual investments and economic exchanges between the two countries.
3. This new Convention will be signed after the final text has been fixed and the necessary internal procedures have been completed by each of the two Governments. Thereafter, the new Convention will enter into force after the completion of the approval process in both countries (in the case of Japan, approval by the Diet is necessary).
