UAE Tax Residency Certificate

The United Arab Emirates is one of the most attractive countries for doing business. There are no taxes or fees for residents of the country, and bilateral agreements on the avoidance of double taxation have been concluded between the UAE and most countries of the world, which allows for minimizing tax payments. In order for a foreign citizen who has become a resident of the United Arab Emirates to prove this fact to the tax authorities of his country, avoiding double taxation, he must present the appropriate document. This document is a tax residence certificate. Dynasty Business Adviser provides assistance to legal entities and individuals in obtaining a UAE residence certificate.

  • availability of a place of residence in the UAE for an individual;
  • confirmation of permanent income for individuals (bank statement for 6 months);

Procedure for obtaining a tax residence certificate

The procedure for obtaining a residence certificate looks like the following:

  • registering a company or purchasing a ready-made legal entity already registered in the UAE is the easiest, fastest, and most cost-effective way to obtain resident status, including for individuals. After opening a company, you will need to purchase a license;
  • obtaining a residence visa – individuals can receive it from the company, as well as by getting a job in the UAE or purchasing a residential property worth more than 1 million dirhams;
  • opening a bank account for a company to carry out regular transactions for 1 year, as well as a personal bank account for an individual, shareholder, or head of a company – these accounts are necessary to confirm the conduct of business (to obtain a certificate of residence of a foreign company) or the availability of income of an individual in the UAE;
  • submission of documents for obtaining a tax residence certificate (Tax Domicile Certificate) after 5-6 months of regular operations using a personal account for an individual and after 1 year of using a corporate account for companies.

To present it to the tax authorities of the country of destination, a legalized certificate of residence certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is required.
