Banking Secrecy and Tax Treaties
Isle of Man is an UK dependency territory, which enjoys a high degree of domestic legislative and political autonomy.

Isle of Man has double tax treaties with 14 countries including UK, US and France. The treaties create valuable opportunities for international tax planning.

The Directive requires EU financial institutions to report to their national tax authorities about interest earned by individuals, who are residents of other EU countries. That information is passed to the tax authorities of those countries.
Isle of Man have been forced to adopt some elements of the Directive. However, Isle of Man has no obligations and does not report on interest earned by individuals, who are residents of EU countries. Instead, it opted to apply withholding/retention tax on such interest, as follow:
The above tax is not applicable to individual residents of non-EU countries.
EU Savings Tax Directive is not applicable to the interest paid to legal entities, such as corporations, limited liability companies, trusts and foundations. Thus the withholding/retention tax is not deducted from interest earned by legal entities.
