A tax Residency Certificate is a Certificate issued by an Income Tax Authority of a Country certifying that the person or an entity is a Tax Resident of that country. Taxation transactions cross-country are determined based on the provisions of the Income Tax Law of the respective country and the requirements of the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement(DTAA) between two countries. As the provisions of DTAA apply to residents of a specific country, Income Tax Authorities of that country where the revenue is generated insist on a Tax Residency Certificate from the receiver of revenue to give benefits available under DTAA between two countries.
In India, an application is sent to the Income Tax Officer ( International Taxation) to obtain the Certificate, and it is issued within a week. No other costs are involved in the above process.
