As you may know, the current tax treaty between the United Kingdom and Luxembourg was signed in London in May 1967 (before the UK joined the EEC) and was amended several times over the years. A new UK-Luxembourg tax treaty was concluded in June 2022 (after the UK left the EU) and will enter into force in 2024. The main reasons for an overhaul of the existing tax treaty include the UK’s withdrawal of the European Union (Brexit) and the evolution of tax standards put forward by the OECD and the BEPS project in recent years.
