AUSTRALIAN TAX TREATIES
The Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (the MLI) has modified the application of this tax treaty. A synthesised text of the MLI and this tax treaty is available to facilitate the understanding of how the MLI modifies this tax treaty.
The High Commission has the honour to advise that the Department ' s proposals are acceptable to the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and that the Department ' s Note and this confirmatory Note in reply shall constitute an Agreement on certain matters between the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Government of Australia for the Avoidance of Double Taxation and the Prevention of Fiscal Evasion with respect to Taxes on Income and on Capital Gains, which shall enter into force at the same time as the entry into force of the Convention.
The British High Commission to Australia avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade the assurances of its highest consideration.
