Tax Information Exchange Agreements (TIEAs) are signed by two countries that agree to cooperate in tax matters through exchange of information. Jersey has been exchanging information on TIEAs with other countries since 2007. Jersey has signed a number of TIEAs based on this OECD model that allow us to send and receive tax information with more than 30 countries. This figure is expected to increase over time. The legality of intergovernmental agreements (ISAs) has been questioned on the grounds that any agreement between governments that significantly binding any government constitutes a treaty. Since the U.S. Constitution does not allow the executive branch to unilaterally implement treaties without the consent of the Senate, many argue that GAs have no basis in the U.S. Constitution.  THE ISGs were not described or provided for in the Fatca legislation, but were designed and implemented a posteriori, when it became clear that FATCA would fail without it.  The agreement and the applicable provisions are set out in 12 articles. Article I deals with the object and scope of the agreement.
Article 2 deals with jurisdictional issues. Article 3 provides that the taxes subject to the Agreement shall be of any kind and description imposed by both Governments, including their subdivisions, local authorities and political subdivisions. Article 4 defines the keywords. Article 5 concerns the exchange of information on request. Article 6 provides that persons shall be interviewed and that recordings shall be verified with the prior written consent of the parties concerned. Article 7 deals with the procedural aspects of rejecting such requests for the exchange of information. Article 8 governs its implementation. Article 9 examines the mutual agreement procedure. Article 10 concerns the application of the Agreement.
Article 11 deals with confidentiality and last Article 12 with the termination of the agreement.
