Tax Residency Certificate

Nowadays, individuals and businesses can be a resident in more than one country. But your tax residency can only be in one country. A Tax Residency Certificate (TRC) in UAE proves that you are a tax resident of the UAE. It means you pay taxes in UAE and are not required to pay taxes in countries with which UAE has signed double taxation avoidance agreements (DTAA).

Individuals and companies can obtain tax residency certificates in UAE if they meet certain conditions. It means whatever business income they earn in UAE and from their offices in other countries, they are paying taxes on it in UAE and submit this tax residency certificate to the relevant authorities in the other countries.

A tax residency certificate is essential to avoid paying double taxes. The certificate also serves as a legal document of your identity in UAE. Thus, the TRC indirectly encourages bilateral business relations and international trade.
