The evidence presented at the time in the preliminary question consisted of a sworn statement by the husband, a sworn statement by Mr. Keehan, a sworn statement by Ms. Brown and an affidavit by the woman`s counsel. The husband in his affidavit stated that he did not believe that a binding agreement had been reached and that after discussions with his accountant, he had ordered his lawyer to withdraw the proposed transaction. The lawyer`s sworn assurances detailed their involvement. Fortunately, there was no major problem between them. The woman`s lawyer also reported in detail on her involvement. About his appearance in court on September 2, it stated: [i] Edgar/Edgar [1980] 1 WLR 1410, in which the Court held, in the course of the appeal proceedings, that the woman in that case was bound by a prior agreement not to claim a lump sum in treating this agreement as the conduct of the parties to be considered in considering the criteria of Section 25 of the Matrimon Causes Actial 1973. (ii) Please note that the 2010 Family Procedure Regulation contains a definition of “no prejudice” in Section 2.2 (Interpretation) which reads: “Without Prejudice – Negotiations for Regulation are generally conducted “without prejudice”, which means that the circumstances under which the content of these negotiations may be disclosed to the court are very limited” and that the glossary is defined as “2.2(1). for the importance of certain legal expressions in the rules, but should not be construed as giving meaning to those expressions in rules that they generally do not have. [iii] As in the sharland cases against Sharland [2015] UKSC 60 and Gohill/Gohill [2-15] UKSC 61. [iv] See case of cyclists (formerly Granatino) against Granatino [2010] UKSC 42 and DB vs.

PB [2016] EWHC 3431. [v] As in the case of kremen/Agrest (financial recourse: secret: according to marital obligation) [2012] EWHC 45 (Fam).

See also the latest decision SC Birch v Birch [2017] UKSC 53. With regard to the issue of the right to privileges because of the supposedly untouched nature of at least a few negotiations, Lord Justice Thorpe indicated that negotiations could continue on one of three bases, namely without prejudice, Calderbank or openly. Although the scholarly judge noted: If the negotiations take place on a non-prejudice basis, it would accept that they would be dissipatable by a passage from Lord Griffiths` speech in the case of Rush – Tompkins Limited v GLC [1989] AC 1280 (which must be taken into account with respect to the facts as this is a civil matter) but found that there was no special regime for the aid procedure without prejudice. The judge also found that an agreement was intended to free up the carte blanche and that the question of whether or not there had been controversy as to whether or not to reach that level must be accepted in determining the issue. 4. We hoped that the decision could relate to the security documents, as agreed.

If airtime does not permit it, this difficulty can be overcome by referring to security documents agreed between lawyers and in the event of a contractual delay as drafted by a consultant.

Nigeria was one of the last nations to sign the agreement. With a population of 200 million, Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and has about 98 million inhabitants in the most populous countries, Ethiopia and Egypt. With a nominal GDP of $376 billion, or about 17% of Africa`s GDP, it is just ahead of South Africa, which accounts for 16% of the African economy. Given that Nigeria is such an important country in terms of population and economy, its absence at the first signing of the agreement was particularly striking. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa highlighted this in his comments of 12 July 2018, commenting: “The continent awaits Nigeria and South Africa. Through trade between us, we are able to maintain more resources on the continent. South Africa signed the agreement later. [52] Describes the bilateral and multilateral trade agreements to which that country belongs, including with the United States. Includes websites and other resources that allow U.S. companies to get more information about how they can use these agreements. Under the CDAA EPA, the EU has eliminated all or part of tariffs on 98.7% of imports from South Africa, while guaranteeing unrestricted access to other signatory countries.

Today, the EU is South Africa`s main trading and investment partner. South Africa is a member of the Southern Africa Customs Union (SACU), which has been negotiating a free trade agreement with the United States for many years. In 2006, SACU signed a free trade agreement with Mercosur. In 2007, they signed a contract with EFTA. By July 2019, 54 of the 55 African Union states had signed the agreement, with Eritrea the only country not to have signed it. Of these Member States, 27 have tabled their ratification instruments. [43] [44] The ITC uses strong relationships between governments and mechanisms to promote a development agenda in Africa focused on identifying and implementing joint investment projects in partner countries; Promote trade between the two parties; coordination of technical cooperation and South Africa`s support for political and institutional development in partner countries; promote the development of cross-border infrastructure, particularly on the basis of the SDI methodology; promote regional integration by strengthening and consolidating the South African Customs Union (SACU) free trade agreement and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Free Trade Agreement; and negotiate investment protection and economic cooperation agreements. South Africa is an emerging economy.

The children`s names and schools were visible on a huge blood-red cloth banner 47 metres long. Tia-o-qui-aht First Nation Elder Dr. Barney Williams, a residential school survivor and member of the Indian Residential School of Survival Committee (an advisory body of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission), believes that the ceremony was important to ensure that the children who died are not forgotten: “Today is a special day not only for me, but for thousands of others , like me, all over the country. to finally bring the recognition and honor of our schoolchildren, our cousins, our nephews, our forgotten nieces. For Elder Williams, the revelation of the 2,800 names was an “emotional” and “very emotional” moment for himself and for thousands of Aboriginal families across Canada. On November 20, 2005, the parties to the negotiations, on which Canada, represented by Frank Iacobucci, a retired Supreme Court of Canada judge, the complainants` representative – the National Consortium and the Merchant Law Group (MLG), an independent advisor, the Assembly of First Nations, Inuit representatives, the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, the Church of Canada , an independent counselor, the Assembly of First Nations, Inuit representative, the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, the Presbyterian Church in Canada, the Presbyterian Church in Canada, the Presbyterian Church in Canada. , the United Church of Canada and Roman Catholic entities for the “dissolution of the legacy of Indian residential schools.” [15] The IRSSA offered alumni lump sum compensation through the Common Experience Payment (CEP) with an average lump sum payment of $28,000. The CEP, which is part of the $1.9 billion Indian Residential Agreement, was “part of a comprehensive and comprehensive response to the legacy of the Indian Residential School.” In more serious cases of abuse, payments were higher. [1]:1[18] The CEP acknowledged “the experience of living in an Indian residential school (s) and its effects. All former students who lived in a recognized Indian residential school (s) who lived on May 30, 2005 were eligible for the CEP.

These include First Nations, Métis and Inuit alumni. [3] This first payment for each person attending a residential school was $10,000 per person plus $3,000 per year. [2] The deadline for applications for the CEP expired on September 19, 2011, with a few exceptions until September 19, 2012. As of December 31, 2012, “a total of 105,540 applications were received as part of the sharing of the experience.

[5] The suspensive creditor may not hold security interests requiring subordination, or may have agreed on a deferral of payment, but not on the under-utilization of its security interests. A subordination agreement (sometimes called a priority agreement or priority agreement) is granted by a creditor for the benefit of another creditor and generally deals with subordination by the creditor granting both the security interests governed by the law and the right to payment. In the context of a subordination agreement, the subordinate creditor is guaranteed: the concept of deferral is often used in a manner synonymous with relinquishing Occupier when a resident who does not own a residential property is required to sign a decision in which he or she agrees to defer all rights he or she can acquire on a property behind those of a mortgage lender. This is necessary so that the non-owner owner cannot prevent the lender from requesting a withdrawal order in the event of a default of the mortgage. Subordination agreements can be used in a variety of circumstances, including complex corporate debt structures. A subordination agreement recognizes that the requirement or interest of one party is greater than that of another party if the borrower`s assets must be liquidated to repay the debt. Under the automatic subordination agreement, the implementation and registration of the main conventions and subordination agreements are carried out simultaneously. If z.B. a trust agreement contains the subordination agreement, the agreement normally states that the right to pledge the trust deed concerned, once registered, is unwittingly subordinated to another trust agreement.

The signed agreement must be recognized by a notary and recorded in the county`s official records in order to be enforceable. An offence may arise if the party refuses to sign the subordination contract in order to subordinate its security interest. With respect to enforcement, a senior creditor may generally have rights in a deferral file to monitor enforcement actions without the agreement of junior creditors, including provisions, so that the junior creditor cannot assert without the written prior consent of the senior creditor. In accordance with the California Civil Code, Section 2953.3, all subordination agreements must include the following: instead of giving a mere subordination by a subordinate creditor to a priority creditor, an inter-credit agreement is generally a more complex agreement between two or more secured creditors, which sets out the details of the relationship between them with respect to their common debtor. An interbank agreement could contain provisions that deal with the following rules: the preference for debt repayment plays a big role when a borrower is either insolvent or declared bankrupt The legal status of a human or non-human entity (a company or a government agency) is not able to repay its unpaid debts to creditors. A subordination agreement recognizes that one party`s right to interest or debt is subordinated to another party when the borrower`s assets are liquidated. The deferral decision A deferral decision is an agreement between two lenders (but see below, the term is sometimes used when the person who agrees to move a lender is not a lender, but has another potential interest, that a lender must be explicitly deferred as behind that lender`s interest) to accept a change.

While THE GATT was a set of rules agreed upon by nations, the WTO is an intergovernmental organization with its own headquarters and staff, whose scope covers both traded goods and trade in the service sector and intellectual property rights. Although used for multilateral agreements, multilateral agreements have led to selective exchanges and fragmentation among members in several rounds of negotiations (particularly the Tokyo Round). WTO agreements are generally a multilateral mechanism for the settlement of GATT agreements. [24] The GATT was created to establish rules to end or limit the most costly and undesirable features of the pre-war protectionist era, namely quantitative barriers to trade, such as trade controls and quotas. The agreement also provided for a system for resolving trade disputes between nations and the framework allowed for a series of multilateral negotiations on the removal of customs barriers. The GATT was considered a major success in the post-war years. In addition to facilitating applied tariff reductions, GATT`s contribution to trade liberalization includes “the commitment of extended-term tariff reductions (which became more sustainable in 1955), the definition of universality of non-discrimination through the treatment of the most favoured nation (MFN) and the status of domestic treatment, ensuring greater transparency in trade policies and creating a forum for negotiations and the peaceful settlement of bilateral disputes. All of these have helped to streamline trade policy and reduce trade barriers and political uncertainty. [4] However, this part of the result was not authorized by Congress and the U.S.

selling price was not abolished until Congress passed the Results of the Tokyo Round. The results in agriculture as a whole have been poor. The most notable achievement was the agreement on a Memorandum of Understanding on the basic elements for the arrangement of global subsidies, which was eventually incorporated into a new international agreement on cereals. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade was a multilateral agreement governing international trade. According to its preamble, its objective was to “substantially reduce tariffs and other trade barriers and eliminate mutually beneficial and reciprocal preferences.” It was negotiated at the UN Conference on Trade and Employment and was the result of the failure of negotiations on the creation of the International Trade Organization. The GATT was signed in 1947 and lasted until 1994, when it was replaced by the World Trade Organization in 1995. The original GATT text is still in force under the WTO, subject to amendments to the GATT in 1994. This statement served as the basis for the so-called “Malthouse Compromise” between conservative parties on how to replace the withdrawal agreement. [26] However, this plan was rejected by Parliament.

[27] The assertion that Article 24 could be used was also adopted by Boris Johnson during his 2019 campaign as leader of the Conservative Party. The assertion that Article 24 could be used in this way has been criticized as unrealistic by Mark Carney, Liam Fox and others, as point 5c of the contract requires an agreement between the parties so that Article 5b can be useful, since there would be no agreement in the case of a non-agreement scenario. In addition, critics of the GATT 24 approach point out that services would not fall under such regulation. [28] [29] Since then, there has been a dispute over whether this symbolic gesture was a victory for it or whether, in the future, it ensured its exclusion from meaningful participation in the multilateral trading system.

The President`s executive means the enforcement (execution) of laws, including contracts. However, contrary to the legislation, contracts have integrated termination clauses. The power of the president to “execute” a contract therefore logically implies the power to apply, if necessary, this termination clause; In the best case scenario, the VFA would be more like a single executive or presidential agreement that would be valid if it were concluded on the basis of the exclusive power of U.S. presidents, in accordance with the U.S. Constitution. Interviewees argue that the United States, with the exception of the NATO Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA), has concluded 78 Status of Forces Agreements (SOFA) extending privileges and immunities to U.S. forces deployed abroad44, similar to the provisions of the VFA. However, respondents were unable to see whether these executive agreements were exclusive executive agreements or whether they were concluded in accordance with congressional authorization or if they had been approved by contract. This detail is important in light of the above discussion of the Senate`s meaning on criminal justice on U.S. forces deployed abroad.

If the VFA ends, what will happen to other military treaties and agreements with the United States? Through these consolidated petitions11 for certiorari and the ban, the petitioners – as legislators, non-governmental organizations, citizens and taxpayers – conferred the constitutionality of the AFA and accuse them of a serious abuse of power when the agreement was ratified. It will help clarify the legal status of the VFA under U.S. law if we compare the legal strength of executive agreements and treaties alone. Under international law, treaties and executive agreements bind the United States in the same way.45 If one distinguishes between treaties and executive agreements, this must be in the constitutional law of the United States.46 Distinctions, if any, between the legal strength of treaties and executive agreements at the national level can be dealt with at three levels. , namely: (1) state law; (2) Congressional acts and contracts; and (3) the U.S. Constitution. On the other side of the coin, it is argued that if the President of the United States enters into an exclusive executive agreement in accordance with his exclusive authority in the field of foreign relations, such an agreement may prevail as a matter of priority against former inconsistent federal statutes.74 In this situation, the doctrine of separation of powers may allow the President of the United States to violate the Act of Congress to violate the Act of Congress. , previously inconsistency as a “constitutional invasion of power.” 76 With regard to voting, Article VII of Article VII requires that an international treaty or agreement be valid and effective, valid and effective, by at least two-thirds of all members of the Senate.

Previously, companies were required to download a certificate of origin form, manually enter information, print, sign, deliver or send it to a chamber of commerce, wait for it to be verified and signed by the relevant chamber officer, to be returned or provided to the company`s office, and for signed and certified documents to be provided to the importer. There are two types of certificates of origin that you must create: a generic certificate of origin or a certificate of origin from the free trade agreement. Information proving that the goods are from; see FTA rules of origin. Certification can be completed on the basis of the manufacturer`s or exporter`s knowledge that the product originated; or, for the exporter, a reasonable confidence in the manufacturer`s written or electronic certification certifying that the product is produced. The U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement came into force on May 15, 2012. On the day of implementation, more than 80% of U.S. industrial goods exports to Colombia were exempt from tariffs, including agricultural and construction machinery, construction products, aircraft and parts, fertilizers, computer equipment, medical and scientific equipment and wood. Not all FREI certificates/declarations require the use of certain alphabetical codes for preferential criteria. Like what. B do not apply criterion B of preference on a Korean FTA form simply because it was the letter test for the transfer of NAFTA. Most countries accept a general certificate of origin containing information about the exporter and importer, the description and harmonized code of goods, and the country of origin. These certificates are usually issued by the exporter and certified by the local Chamber of Commerce. It is the Colombian importer`s responsibility to apply for preferential duty negotiated by the ESTV for qualified products.

However, the Colombian importer, customs broker or customs service may ask the exporter or producer to provide a written or electronic certificate or other information in support of the importer`s debt. Although there is no required form for the certificate of origin, it is a form often used by many exporters and importers. Although there is no form required for the certificate of origin, the minimum items must be included: by April 1, 2018, U.S. exporters seeking preferential access to the Israeli market had to use a specific green certificate of origin. This form has been replaced by an original U.S. invoice statement, which must appear on a trade document, which would typically be the commercial invoice. The korus provisions are set out in General Note 33 of the harmonized tariff. A good must be shipped directly from one country to another. Any stops in any place other than the United States or Korea for anything other than unloading, transshipment or other processes necessary to obtain the status of the goods, sending the KORUS benefits will be disqualified. As with all other free trade agreements to which the United States is a subcontractor, korus products are exempt from the processing tax. Each lot must also have a certificate of origin. The importer strongly needs the assistance and cooperation of its U.S.

suppliers to establish accurate and well-documented declarations of origin. To qualify, a product must be considered a “product of origin” in accordance with the terms of the agreement. This means that the product must have sufficient content or treatment in the United States or Australia to meet the criteria of the agreement. If the goods contain only intermediate U.S. or Australian consumption, they qualify. If they contain certain contributions from other countries, they may still be eligible if they meet certain criteria set out in the rules of origin of the agreement.

The New York Times saw the deal as a timely foreign policy breakthrough for President Donald Trump in the context of the November 2020 presidential election, where he lagged in the opinion polls of his opponent Joe Biden amid widespread social unrest in the United States and an economic slowdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. [21] Other leaders and groups, including the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, unanimously rejected the agreement, according to Al Jazeera. Mustafa Barghouti, head of the Palestinian National Initiative, said they were not surprised by the recent actions taken by the United Arab Emirates and the fact that the Emiratis had never attempted to fight Israel. He added that this could encourage other nations to ignore the Palestinian issue. The head of the Palestine Liberation Front, Wasel Abu Yousef, said the agreement would only give Israel greater influence over its occupation. ANP Social Affairs Minister Ahmed Majdalani said they did not know the agreement in advance and that the UAE was bartering the others, while unilaterally changing the Arab world`s approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. [67] Palestinian nervousness will increase after Bahrain`s accession to the agreement. The peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates (United Arab Emirates) and Israel, supported by the United States on 13 August, was undoubtedly encouraged by the circumstances. Let us remember the most important outcome of the agreement: the two countries will establish official relations and Israel will suspend the planned annexation of 30% of the West Bank (which was part of Trump`s “peace plan”). Many hope that over time the Abraham Accords will give other Gulf countries (and other states boycotting Israel) the opportunity to sign similar agreements with Israel or, at the very least, lift the current restrictions, which will allow travel between those states and Israel and create other important trade and trade opportunities.

We have already seen a movement in this context, since on 23 October 2020, a peace agreement was reached between Sudan and Israel (as in the Abraham Accords, an agreement negotiated by the US government). Another recent positive development in which Saudi Arabia is participating is the opening of the country`s airspace, starting on 2 September this year, to direct air traffic between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, following a request from the United Arab Emirates to Saudi Arabia. © 2020 from the Center for Strategic and International Studies. All rights reserved. In a joint statement by Trump, Netanyahu and Zayed, it was said: “This historic diplomatic breakthrough will promote peace in the Middle East region and is proof of the courageous diplomacy and vision of the three heads of state and government and the courage of the United Arab Emirates and Israel to take a new path that will unlock the great potential of the region.” [24] The United Arab Emirates stated that it would continue to support the Palestinian people and that the agreement would maintain the prospect of a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine. Despite the agreement, Mr. Netanyahu said that Israel`s sovereignty over the Jordan Valley was still on the agenda and was only frozen for now. [24] Aaron David Miller, a longtime Middle East peace negotiator who now works at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said the deal was a “win-win” deal, as it won diplomatic victories for the Emirates, Mr. Netanyahu and Mr.

Trump. “The big losers are the Palestinians who have seen the Arab world move closer to Israel, which Netanyahu seems to reward for ignoring the Palestinians and harming the interests of the Palestinians,” he said. With or without a peace agreement with the Palestinians. And he was quick. Mr. Trump surrounded himself in the Oval Office with a large delegation of aid workers and officials who received exuberant praise for him, and he jokingly said that the agreement should be “Donald J.

The failure of Doha has enabled China to reach a global level of trade. It has signed bilateral trade agreements with dozens of countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Chinese companies have the right to develop the country`s oil and other raw materials. In return, China provides loans and technical or commercial assistance. Part of the WTO`s non-discrimination mandate is the status of the Most Favoured Nation (MFN). The status of the most favoured nation requires that a WTO member apply the same conditions for trade with all other WTO members. In other words, if a country gives a special favour to another country (including a non-WTO member), any other WTO member must receive the same treatment. You probably saw a version of the most favoured child status when an adult told you that if you were taking chewing gum or candy to school, you should bring enough for everyone. In other words, you couldn`t just give chewing gum or candy to your best friends, and if you didn`t have enough for everyone in the class, no one would get it. This is indeed how the nation`s most privileged status works. The Doha Round would have been the world`s largest trade agreement if the United States and the EU had agreed on a reduction in their agricultural subsidies. As a result of its failure, China has gained ground on the world`s economic front through cost-effective bilateral agreements with countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Over the past decade, Mexico has been an important test for the free trade/free market development model.

This model has been envied and widely adopted by developing countries throughout Latin America and the world. But the alternative of protectionism and closed doors sometimes hides in the shadows. Unfortunately, in December 1994, a test of the dangers of economic integration emerged in the new world of volatile international capital markets. Capital, which quickly poured in, showed a worrying predilection for getting out even faster when it was shaken by signs of political and economic difficulties. The following video details and compares the different types of trade agreements: although the WTO embodies the principle of non-discrimination in international trade, Article 24 of the GATT authorizes the creation of free trade zones and “customs unions” among WTO members. A free trade area is a group of countries that remove all tariffs on trade with each other, but retain their autonomy in setting their tariffs with non-members. A customs union is a group of countries that remove all tariffs on trade between them, while maintaining a common external tariff for trade with countries outside the EU (which is technically contrary to the MFN). In 1995, GATT became the World Trade Organization (WTO), which now has more than 140 member states. The WTO controls four international trade agreements: the GATT, the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and the Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights and Trade Investment Agreement (TRIPS and TRIMS).

The WTO is now the forum for members to negotiate the removal of trade barriers; The most recent forum is the Doha Development Round, launched in 2001. A closer look at some of the existing Latin American trade pacts provides an insight into the proximity of the Western Hemisphere countries to a free trade area of the Americas: for Mexico, the starting point is the 1982 debt crisis, which triggered a period of prolonged economic stagnation. At the time, Mexico imposed many of the same policies as Venezuela today – the nationalization of banks, the introduction of capital controls and the closing of severe trade barriers.

(For a transitional period, some states have a separate regime. [8] You can offer any non-resident account holder the choice of tax terms: (a) disclosure of information such as above, or b) deduction of local tax on savings income at source, as is the case for residents). Certain types of British visitors are subject to special treatment under a double taxation agreement, such as students, teachers or overseas government officials. You will probably need to seek professional advice if you are in a double taxation situation. We`ll tell you how to find an advisor on our “Get help” page. Various factors, such as political and social stability, an educated population, a sophisticated public health and justice system, but above all corporate taxation, make the Netherlands a very attractive country where they do business. The Netherlands applies corporation tax at a rate of 25%. Resident taxpayers are taxed on their global income. Non-resident taxpayers are taxed on their income from Dutch sources.

In the Netherlands, there are two types of double taxation relief. Economic double taxation relief is available for the proceeds of significant equity stakes in the participation. Resident taxpayers receiving foreign income receive legal aid in the event of double taxation. In both cases, there is a combined system that makes a difference in active and passive income. [13] For example, a person who resides in the United Kingdom but has rental income from a property in another country will likely have to pay taxes on rental income, both in the United Kingdom and in that other country. This is a common situation for migrants who have come to work in Britain to find themselves. However, you should keep in mind that, in practice, the transfer base helps to avoid double taxation when you live in the UK and earn foreign income and profits abroad. There are two types of double taxation: double taxation and double economic taxation.

In the first case, where the source rule overlaps, the tax is collected by two or more countries, in accordance with their national legislation, for the same transaction, the income is born or applies in their respective jurisdictions. In the latter case, when the same transaction, the element of income or capital is taxed in two or more states, but in the hands of another person, there is double taxation. [1] Iceland has several tax agreements with other countries. Persons permanently residing and subject to an unlimited tax obligation in one of the contracting states may be entitled to exemption or reduction in the taxation of income and property, in accordance with the provisions of each agreement, without the income being otherwise doubly taxed. Each agreement is different and it is therefore necessary to review the agreement in question in order to determine where the tax debt of the person concerned is actually located and the taxes prescribed by the agreement. The provisions of tax treaties with other countries may result in a restriction of Icelandic tax law. India has a comprehensive agreement with 88 countries to avoid double taxation, 85 of which have entered into force. [15] This means that there are agreed tax rates and skill rates for certain types of income generated in one country for a country of taxation established in another country. Under India`s Income Tax Act of 1961, there are two provisions, Section 90 and Section 91, that provide taxpayers with special facilities to protect them from double taxation. Section 90 (bilateral facilitation) applies to tax payers who have paid tax to a country with which India has signed agreements to avoid double taxation, while Section 91 (unilateral relief) provides benefits to taxpayers who have paid taxes in a country with which India has not signed an agreement.
