How is my tax residence defined?

Each country has different rules that define tax residence. The OECD website has information on how to determine your tax residency. If you don’t know if you are a foreign tax resident, you should seek tax advice.

Why am I asked if my entity is passive under tax residency questions?

Share
Under the regulations, passive entities must supply information about the tax residency for all Controlling Persons.

Why are you asking me if I am a tax resident of another country?
