Double Taxation Agreements

Ireland has entered into a DTA with 68 countries, of which 64 are in effect. New DTAs were entered into with Armenia, Panama and Saudi Arabia since the beginning of 2013. A DTA ensures that if an individual is resident in Ireland and is in receipt of income from another country, that income is not taxed twice i.e. in the country of origin and in the country of receipt. A DTA will either exempt the income from being taxed in one of the countries, or allow a credit for the tax paid in one country against the total tax paid in the country of residence.
