AUSTRALIAN TAX TREATIES

Danish Agreement  

AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF AUSTRALIA AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE KINGDOM OF DENMARK FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBLE TAXATION AND THE PREVENTION OF FISCAL EVASION WITH RESPECT TO TAXES ON INCOME  

ARTICLE 4   Residence  

(1)  
For the purposes of this Agreement, a person is a resident of one of the Contracting States -


(a) in the case of Australia, subject to the provisions of paragraph (2), if the person is a resident of Australia for the purposes of Australian tax; and


(b) in the case of Denmark, if the person is liable to tax therein by reason of his domicile, residence, place of incorporation or any other criterion of a similar nature but not if he is liable to tax in Denmark in respect only of income from sources therein.

(2)  
In relation to income from sources in Denmark, a person who is subject to Australian tax on income which is from sources in Australia shall not be treated as a resident of Australia unless the income from sources in Denmark is subject to Australian tax or, if that income is exempt from Australian tax, it is so exempt solely because it is subject to Danish tax.

(3)  
Where by reason of the provisions of paragraph (1) an individual is a resident of both Contracting States, then his status shall be determined in accordance with the following rules:


(a) he shall be deemed to be a resident solely of the Contracting State in which he has a permanent home available to him;


(b) if he has a permanent home available to him in both Contracting States, or if he does not have a permanent home available to him in either of them, he shall be deemed to be a resident solely of the Contracting State in which he has an habitual abode;


(c) if he has an habitual abode in both Contracting States, or if he does not have an habitual abode in either of them, he shall be deemed to be a resident solely of the Contracting State with which his personal and economic relations are the closer.

(4)  
Where by reason of the provisions of paragraph (1), a person other than an individual is a resident of both Contracting States, then it shall be deemed to be a resident solely of the Contracting State in which it is created.
