Double Tax Agreement with Ireland

Updated: Feb 24

Double Tax Agreement with Ireland

Ireland and Hong Kong have a Double Tax Agreement (DTA) in place to avoid double taxation and prevent fiscal evasion with respect to taxes on income. The agreement was signed on June 22, 2010, and entered into force on January 1, 2011.

Here are some key points about the DTA:

  • Purpose: The agreement aims to eliminate double taxation by allowing residents of one country to claim a tax credit in their home country for taxes paid on income arising in the other country.

  • Scope: The DTA applies to various types of income, including:

  • Business profits

  • Dividends

  • Interest

  • Royalties

  • Capital gains

  • Salaries and pensions

  • Methods for eliminating double taxation:

  • Tax credit method: This allows residents of one country to claim a credit against their home country tax for taxes paid in the other country.

  • Exemption method: This allows certain types of income to be exempt from taxation in one country if they are taxed in the other country.

Here are some resources where you can find more information about the DTA:

It's important to note that the DTA is a complex document and seeking professional advice from a tax specialist is recommended if you have specific questions about its application to your individual circumstances.
