According to the Jersey Evening Post, Jersey and Ireland are on the verge of signing a tax information exchange agreement, allowing the sharing of specific information between the two countries with regard to civil tax investigations.
Speaking in late November, Frank Daly, head of Ireland's Revenue Commissioners announced that talks between the Irish tax authority and its counterparts in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man had taken place under the auspices of the OECD tax cooperation initiative. However, although Jersey theoretically has until 2006 to implement information exchange agreements with various other jurisdictions, recent reports have suggested that a tax treaty with Ireland is imminent.
