38 The tax rates established in each tax treaty are indicated. The applicability of one or another depends, in each case, on the specific requirements established in each tax treaty.

39 The previous tax treaty between Spain and Argentina which took effect on July 28, 1994, was denounced unilaterally by Argentina and ceased to have effect on January 1, 2013. However, the new tax treaty, signed on March 11, 2013, establishes its effects from January 1, 2013 (meaning that for practical purposes there is no period not covered by a treaty).

40 The tax treaty states that the rate applicable to interest and royalties is 8%. However, the Protocol specifies that after a period of 5 years since the entry into force of the tax treaty, the rates relating to interest and royalties (articles 11 and 12 of the tax treaty) will be 0%. As it took effect on April 20, 2006, the period has already elapsed, and the 0% rate will apply.

41 Published on May 26, 2014, and entered into force on May 28, 2014.

42 Denmark decided to terminate the Treaty with Spain as of January 1, 2009.

43 The new Protocol amending the Spain-Switzerland tax treaty has been signed and establishes the following rates:

    • Dividends: 15 or 0.
    • Interest: 0.
    • Royalties: 0.
