Harneys have releases a press release notifying the Tax Information Exchange Agreement  (TIEA) between the Government of Japan and the Government of the British Virgin Islands will come into effect on 11 October 2014.

Following the coming into force of the TIEA both Japan and the British Virgin Islands can exchange information in relation to tax matters within the framework of the TIEA once a request has been made to one party by the other party. The TIEA enables the relevant tax authorities in both Japan and the British Virgin Islands to have greater ability to exchange information relating to tax purposes in accordance with internationally agreed standards set by the Organisation For Economic Co-Operation and Development.
