In addition to income tax agreements to avoid double taxation, Korea has agreements with many countries, including some tax havens and those that have tentatively concluded such agreements. TIEA coverage covers Andorra, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands and the Cook Islands, to name a few. TIEAs include information necessary to manage and enforce national tax law, including details relating to the registration of tax payers, information relating to the ownership of the business, accounting documents and accounts of a given transaction, as well as information on individual or corporate financial transactions. TIEAs create a framework for Korea to reduce abusive tax evasion with tax havens and to disclose and collect taxes on offshore tax evasion. In addition, Korea is one of 136 countries that have joined the Multilateral Convention on Mutual Tax Assistance since March 2020.

These persons or authorities may only use this information for such purposes, but they may disclose it in the context of a public court proceeding, procedure or court decision. The relevant authorities, through consultations, develop appropriate conditions, methods and techniques for the issues in which such information is exchanged, including, where appropriate, the exchange of information on tax evasion. 1.
