Luxembourg has concluded more than 70 double tax treaties and nearly 20 such agreements are pending for approval. A Convention for the avoidance of double taxation is advantageous for foreign investors from that country who want to open a business in Luxembourg or vice versa.
 

The provisions of a double tax treaty

 
The model used for the double tax avoidance agreements is in line with the provisions of the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development. The most important goal of a double taxation treaty is to eliminate double taxation for the same individual or same legal entity. This implies that the Contracting States decide which one will levy a certain tax on the income produced therein. 
 
The withholding taxes on dividends, royalties and capital gains are targeted in all double tax treaties. While both countries impose a normal rate for these types of income, under an agreement of this type the rate will be reduced and in some cases will be even eliminated completely. The types of taxes usually covered by a double tax treaty include the corporate tax, the income tax, the wealth tax, the communal business tax and others.
 
Special provisions within these treaties allow for the prevention of tax discrimination and also for the prevention of tax evasion. Special rules are in place for the exchange of information between the Contracting States.
