Japan: DTA with Lithuania signed

Posted on Updated on

The Japanese Ministry of Finance on 14 July 2017 issued a press release announcing that the Government of Japan and the Government of the Republic of Lithuania have signed a Double Taxation Agreement (DTA). The agreement provides for the avoidance of double taxation and the prevention of fiscal evasion with respect to taxes on income. This Convention is the first tax convention to be concluded between Japan and the Republic of Lithuania in the light of an increasingly close economic relationship between the two countries.

Although the DTA has been signed, it has not entered into force yet. For the DTA to enter into force, the respective ratification procedures have to have been finalised in both countries.
