статус налогового резидента в оаэ

The status of the tax resident confirms that the person/company has the status of a tax resident in the United Arab Emirates from the point of view of the authorities of this jurisdiction.

In order to obtain a tax residency, it is necessary to meet the requirements/ comply with certain set of rules, depending on the state.

At the same time, having received the status of tax resident in the UAE, the tax authorities of other countries do not always guarantee the recognition of your full tax residency in the Emirates. Fulfilment of all the rules and conditions for obtaining tax residency in the UAE also does not at all ensure the recognition of full tax residence in another jurisdiction.

Companies and individuals can obtain a certificate of tax resident of the UAE, but according to different criteria. In case of individual, he/she need to have residence permit in the United Arab Emirates and place of residence in order to obtain the foregoing certificate.

In case the company is the recipient of the certificate, then it should not be offshore one, and the director of such company should be the resident of the UAE, although the director may be a foreigner with the residence permit in the UAE. Moreover, it is necessary to meet additional criteria, which are determined individually.
