AGREEMENT

between the European Union and the French Republic concerning the application to the collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy of Union legislation on the taxation of savings and administrative cooperation in the field of taxation

THE EUROPEAN UNION,

and

THE FRENCH REPUBLIC, on behalf of the collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy,

together referred to as ‘the Parties’,

Whereas:

(1)

The collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy is an integral part of the French Republic but, in accordance with European Council Decision 2010/718/EU, (1) it is no longer part of the European Union from 1 January 2012.

(2)

In order to continue to protect the interests of the Union, and in particular, to combat fraud and cross-border tax evasion, it is necessary to ensure that Union legislation on administrative cooperation in the field of taxation and on taxation of savings income in the form of interest payments continues to apply to the collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy. It is equally necessary to ensure that any acts amending this legislation will also apply to the collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy,

HAVE AGREED AS FOLLOWS:

Article 2

Applicable versions of Union legal acts referred to in this Agreement

Any reference in this Agreement to Directives 2011/16/EU and 2003/48/EC, and to other legal acts of the Union referred to in Article 1(3) and (4) of this Agreement, shall be understood as a reference to the version of those Directives and related acts and instruments in force at any given time, amended where appropriate by any subsequent amending acts.

The Parties declare that the competent authorities designated under Directive 2003/48/EC and the competent authorities, central liaison offices, liaison departments and competent officials designated under Directive 2011/16/EU by Member States, shall be invested with the same functions and powers for the purpose of implementing those Directives with respect to the collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy, in accordance with Article 1 of this Agreement.

Article 4

Monitoring

The French Republic shall submit statistics and information to the European Commission concerning the application of this Agreement to the collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy.

Article 5

Mutual agreement procedure between the competent authorities

1.   Where implementation or interpretation of this Agreement leads to problems or raises issues between the competent authority for the collectivity of Saint-Barthélemy and one or more competent authorities of the Member States, they shall endeavour to resolve the matter by mutual agreement. They shall inform the European Commission of the results of this conciliation procedure, after which the Commission shall inform the other Member States.

2.   Where there are issues of interpretation, the European Commission may take part in consultations at the request of any of the competent authorities referred to in paragraph 1.

1.   In the event of a dispute between the Parties on the interpretation or application of this Agreement, the Parties shall meet before any referral to the Court of Justice of the European Union in accordance with paragraph 2.

2.   The Court of Justice of the European Union shall have exclusive jurisdiction for settling disputes between the Parties about the application or interpretation of this Agreement. Referral may be made by any of the Parties.
