Tax Residency Advisory

    Tax Residency Advisory

    Tax residence refers to the legal and physical base on which tax is computed as per a country’s tax laws. However, Tax Residency relates more in an international cross-border context than to domestic tax laws in the GCC; Tax Residency is applicable to both individuals and companies. Residency is legally established by a Tax Residency Certificate (TRC). The TRC is an official certificate or document issued by the tax authority of a country to tax resident entities and individuals fulfilling the set residency criteria as per the residency regulations under the country’s domestic income tax laws. TRC – or Tax Domicile Certificate as it is known in some countries such as the UAE – is a prerequisite for claiming any benefits of lower or no taxation in the source or residence country vis-a-vis the DTAA.

    Tax Residency is of critical importance to both individuals and companies but involves in depth knowledge of complex DTAA tax treaty provisions.
