Agreements on Exchange of Information

Posted in Seychelles offshore jurisdiction at 6:26 pm by Robert Klien

The Seychelles has no international agreements on exchange of information, but its upcoming double tax treaties are going to include some regulations on this matter that will be based on the model worked out by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

Also, the Seychelles has a number of domestic legislation documents that include

  • the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act 1995,
  • the Anti-Money Laundering Act 1996,
  • and some offshore Acts.

These acts mention the necessity to provide information internationally in suspicious and possibly criminal cases. As to the topicality of combating terrorism, the following conventions are in force in the Seychelles:

  • Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism,
  • Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings,
  • Convention Against Trans-National Organized Crime,
  • Convention Against the Taking of Hostages,
  • Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism,
  • Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material,
  • Statute Establishing the International Criminal Court,
  • and the Convention on the Marking of Plastic Explosives for the Purposes of Detection.
