Bulgaria Bulgarian tax agreements and international agreements The source country is the country that houses domestic investment. The country of origin is sometimes referred to as an capital-importing country. The investor`s country of residence is the investor`s country of residence. The country of residence is sometimes referred to as an exporting capital country. To avoid double taxation, tax treaties can follow one of two models: the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) model and the UN Model Convention. To access the corresponding English texts, click on the official title of the link contract on the information page of the Australian Contracts Database. Jurisdictions may enter into tax treaties with other countries that establish rules to avoid double taxation. These contracts often contain provisions for the exchange of information in order to prevent tax evasion. For example, when a person seeks a tax exemption in one country on the basis of non-residence in that country, but does not declare it as a foreign income in the other country; Or who is asking for local tax relief for a foreign tax deduction at the source that did not actually occur. [Citation required] The revised Convention on the Prevention of Double Taxation between India and Cyprus, signed on 18 November 2016, provides for a tax on capital gains from the disposal of shares instead of a home-related tax under the Convention on the Prevention of Double Taxation, signed in 1994. However, a grandfather clause is provided for investments made before April 1, 2017 and for which capital gains continue to be taxed in the country where the taxpayer is based. It also provides assistance between the two countries for the collection of taxes and updates the provisions on the exchange of information to recognized international standards. The signing of the agreement on the prevention of double taxation has four main consequences.

One of the most important aspects of a tax treaty is the withholding policy of the treaty, since it determines the amount of taxes collected on income (interest and dividends) on a non-resident`s securities. For example, if a tax agreement between country A and country B establishes that their bilateral withholding tax on dividends is 10%, Country A will tax dividends paid in Country B at a rate of 10%. and vice versa. If a foreign national stays in Germany for less than 183 days (about six months) and has another place of taxpayer (i.e. taxes on his salary and benefits), it may be possible to apply for tax relief under a certain double taxation contract. The relevant period of 183 days is 183 days in a calendar year or a 12-month period, depending on the contract. There are two types of double taxation: double taxation and double economic taxation. In the first case, where the source rule overlaps, the tax is collected by two or more countries, in accordance with their national legislation, for the same transaction, the income is born or applies in their respective jurisdictions. In the latter case, when the same transaction, the element of income or capital is taxed in two or more states, but in the hands of another person, there is double taxation.
