Tax Residency Certificates

Tax Residency Certificates in UAE

In a period of globalization, businesses have spread across the globe and are not restricted to a single territory. So there the term ‘Tax Residency Certificate’ comes into play. In brief, a tax residency certificate states that your company is a resident of a particular country for tax purposes. This is useful when double taxation treaties are there in your country and in the UAE or another foreign country. In this taxation treaty the UAE and the other country agree that the other country will not deduct income tax on the income made in the UAE registered company. This certificate is beneficial when you file your tax return in your home country. Many deductions can be avoided with the help of a tax residency certificate. In UAE, the Tax Residency Certificate is better known as Tax Domicile Certificate. It is provided by the Ministry of Finance, UAE.
