The provisions of the agreement will apply to the tax withheld at source on contributions credited or paid out on or after 1 January 2012, and will apply to the other taxes for tax years from 2012 onwards.

In line with the Swiss agreements policy at the time of the negotiations, the DTA with Tajikistan does not contain any provisions on the exchange of information in accordance with the international standard applicable at present.
