Fast Tax Fact: Samoa double tax agreement

The New Zealand - Samoa double tax agreement "DTA" is now in force. 

This is great news for businesses in both countries as it will lower the costs of trading and investing between countries and will provide more certainty to businesses looking to develop trade links. The reduced withholding tax rates for payments of interest, dividends or royalties provided for under the DTA, apply from 1 February 2016.
