ARTICLE 23   Methods of Elimination of Double Taxation  

(1)  
Subject to the provisions of the law of Australia from time to time in force which relate to the allowance of a credit against Australian tax of tax paid in a country outside Australia (which shall not affect the general principle hereof), Danish tax paid under the law of Denmark and in accordance with this Agreement, whether directly or by deduction, in respect of income derived by a person who is a resident of Australia from sources in Denmark (not including in the case of a dividend, tax paid in respect of the profits out of which the dividend is paid) shall be allowed as a credit against Australian tax payable in respect of that income.

(2)  
Double taxation shall be avoided as follows in Denmark:


(a) Subject to the provisions of subparagraph (c), where a resident of Denmark derives income which, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement may be taxed in Australia, Denmark shall allow as a deduction from the tax on the income of that resident, an amount equal to the income tax paid in Australia;


(b) Such deduction shall not, however, exceed that part of the income tax, as computed before the deduction is given, which is attributable to the income which may be taxed in Australia;


(c) Where a resident of Denmark derives income which, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, shall be taxable only in Australia, Denmark may include this income in the tax base, but shall allow as a deduction from the income tax that part of the income tax which is attributable to the income derived from Australia.

(3)  
In the event that one of the Contracting States should cease to allow a company which is a resident of that State relief from its tax in respect of dividends paid to it by a company which is a resident of the other Contracting State, being relief available under the taxation law of the first-mentioned State as in force at the date of signature of this Agreement, that State will immediately advise the other State of the change and enter into negotiations with it to establish new provisions concerning the relief to be allowed in the first-mentioned State under this Article in respect of that State ' s tax on the dividends.
