Tax residency Certificate
Tax residency certificate, also known as Tax domicile certificate, is issued by Federal Tax Authority as per the provisions of avoidance of double taxation agreements (DTAA). The certificate is valid for a year and is issued to individuals as well as companies. Additional certificate applications can also be filed depending on unique requirements.
The UAE’s generous tax climate is one of the many benefits that attract firms to the country. A huge chunk of enterprises that have their headquarters in the UAE are tax-free. Acquiring a tax residency certificate in UAE as part of the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreements (DTAA) guarantees that the same taxpayer is not taxed twice in two different nations.
As Tax residency certificates are unavailable to offshore corporations; hence, they should get a tax exemption certificate.
