    As Uruguay has already signed a TIE with Argentina, does this mean that UK will now have access to the tax returns of the KKK bandits tax returns in Uruguay?

    The TIEA that Uruguay has with Argentina only kicked in with effect from 7 February 2013.

    This agreement now means that Uruguay has agreements with one more juristiction than Gibraltar does. I wonder why no-one significant has been screaming that Uruguay is a tax haven?

    2 Stevie

    I can only speak for myself but hopefully I will be able to offset the tax I pay in Uruguay against the tax I pay in the UK.

    As usual you miss the point of these things: not only is it designed to catch tax evaders it also helps tax payers to pay only ONE tax!

    Can't come soon enough.

    Bet you weren't expecting that Stevie.

    BTW, where do YOU pay tax? Ha, ha, ha.
