Types of Tax Residency Certificates in UAE

Tax residency certificates in UAE are essential for individuals and businesses to establish their tax residency status. These certificates serve different purposes, depending on whether they are needed for local tax compliance or for international tax treaties. Here are the two main types of tax residency certificate in UAE:

  1. Domestic Tax Residency Certificate: This certificate confirms that an individual or business is a tax resident in the UAE according to the country’s local tax laws. It is primarily used to comply with UAE tax obligations and to access local tax benefits.
  2. Tax Residency Certificate for Double Taxation Agreement (DTA) Purposes: This certificate is used to claim benefits under a Double Taxation Agreement between the UAE and another country. These agreements prevent double taxation of the same income. For instance, if a UAE resident earns income in another country, this certificate can help reduce or eliminate taxes in that country based on the terms of the DTA.

In essence, domestic tax residency certificates are for local use within the UAE, while DTA certificates are for international use involving tax treaties. For more details on obtaining TRC Certificates in UAE, get in touch with MSZ.
