Rules governing tax residence


This section provides an overview of the tax residency rules applicable in jurisdictions that are committed to automatically exchanging information under the CRS, as provided to the OECD Secretariat by those jurisdictions. The information can be accessed by clicking on the name of the jurisdiction at the end of this page. While the jurisdictions and the OECD Secretariat endeavour to keep the information as accurate and up to date as possible, it is to be considered as preliminary guidance only.

In certain cases, Account Holders might find themselves in a position where based on the domestic rules of certain jurisdictions, they could be considered a tax resident in more than one jurisdiction. In that case, Account Holders may check whether both jurisdictions have a double tax treaty in place, which would attribute the tax residence exclusively to one of the jurisdictions.
