To support the expansion of Australia’s tax treaties network, submissions from stakeholders are sought from 16 September 2021 to 31 October 2021.
The Government is expanding Australia’s tax treaty network with a plan to enter into 10 new and updated tax treaties by 2023, building on our existing network of 45 bilateral tax treaties, as announced in the Treasurer’s media release.
Negotiations with India, Luxembourg and Iceland are occurring this year as part of the first phase of the program. Negotiations with Greece, Portugal and Slovenia are scheduled to occur next year as part of the second phase.
Submissions are sought on the key outcomes Australia should seek in negotiating these tax treaties and any other issues related to Australia’s tax treaty network.
Details of Australia's existing tax treaties are available on the Treasury website.
