Men with Calculator_edited.jpg

Organizations are growing to a variety of different regions due to the current economic climate. As a result, some governments have made the decision to tax their residents' and companies' worldwide revenue. A tax domicile certificate, also known as a tax residence certificate, is a document that a country issues to businesses, people, and government organizations so that they can take advantage of procedures to prevent double taxation (DTA). These documents prove to the applicant's residency in the country that issued them.

The UAE signed 115 DTAs with the majority of its trading partners in order to enhance its development objectives.

A company must have been in existence for at least one year from the date of application in order to receive a tax domicile certificate; however, a person must have been present in the UAE for at least 183 days in order to do so. A tax residence certificate in the UAE is issued by the Ministry of Finance.​
