ARTICLE 27   Limitation of Relief  

1.  
Where this Agreement provides (with or without other conditions) that income from sources in a Contracting State shall be relieved wholly or partly from tax in that State, and under the laws in force in the other Contracting State the said income is subject to tax by reference to the amount thereof which is remitted to or received in that other State and not by reference to the full amount thereof, then the relief to be allowed under this Agreement in the first-mentioned State shall apply only to so much of the income as is remitted to or received in that other State;
Provided that where -


(a) in accordance with the foregoing provisions of this Article, relief has not been allowed in the first instance in the first-mentioned State in respect of an amount of income; and


(b) that amount of income has subsequently been remitted to or received in the other State and is thereby subject to tax in that other State,

the competent authority of the first-mentioned State shall, subject to any laws thereof for the time being in force limiting the time and setting out the method for the making of a refund of tax, allow relief in respect of that amount of income in accordance with the appropriate provisions of this Agreement.

2.  
Persons entitled to a particular tax treatment under:


(a) a law of one of the Contracting States which has been identified in an Exchange of Letters between the Contracting States; or


(b) any law substantially similar to such an identified law which is subsequently enacted by the relevant Contracting State,

shall not be entitled to any benefit of this Agreement.

3.  
In the event of either Contracting State becoming aware of a substantially similar law of the type referred to in subparagraph (b) of paragraph 2, the Contracting States shall consult each other with a view to identifying such law in an Exchange of Letters.
