A tax residency certificate (TRC) is issued to verify which country the citizen belongs. The TRC is considered to be a must have certificate for any such resident whose income has strings attached to more than one country.

Usually it is considered difficult to obtain any such relevant tax residence certificate for taxpayers of the country. However, the tax authorities may refuse to grant such tax residence certificate if any document fails to achieve any required criteria.

Overview of TRC

In order to avoid double taxation on an income any resident can take advantage of “Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement (DTAA)” signed between the countries. However, TRC discards the probability of double taxation by applying relevant DTAA along with the benefits stated therein.

In order to seek DTAA benefits for Indian citizen it is necessary to obtain a Tax Residency Certificate (TRC).

 However, in case of non resident Indian in order to seek the benefits stated in DTAA one might need TRC to submit to their native country.

To obtain a Tax Residency Certificate in India the residents had to fill Form 10FA. Similarly, the TRC in respect to the foreign country residents could be obtained from the relevant tax authority.
