Government of Canada strengthens collaboration with the United Kingdom

The Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, P.C., Q.C., M.P., Minister of National Revenue, today wrapped up a successful two-day trip to London, England. During her visit, Minister Findlay met with David Gauke, Financial Secretary to the Treasury for the United Kingdom (U.K.) and responsible for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), as well as HMRC senior officials, members of the tax community, and other stakeholders.  

During her discussions with Financial Secretary Gauke, Minister Findlay highlighted Government of Canada priorities with regard to tax compliance as well as support for small business. Canada is continuously looking for ways to enhance the exchange of information through negotiations of tax agreements, renegotiations of existing treaties, and enhancements of administrative arrangements with other countries. These efforts have led, for example, to the signing on July 21, 2014, of a protocol between Canada and the U.K. amending the Convention between our two governments for the Avoidance of Double Taxation and the Prevention of Fiscal Evasion with Respect to Taxes on Income and on Capital.
