CHAPTER II - DEFINITIONS  

ARTICLE 4   Resident  

1.  
For the purposes of this Convention, the term " resident of a Contracting State " means any person who, under the laws of that State, is liable to tax therein as a resident of that State or by reason of domicile in that State, and also includes that State and any political subdivision or local authority thereof. This term, however, does not include any person who is liable to tax in that State in respect only of income from sources in that State.

2.  
Where by reason of the provisions of paragraph 1 a person, being an individual is a resident of both Contracting States, then the person ' s status shall be determined as follows:


a) the individual shall be deemed to be a resident only of the State in which a permanent home is available to that individual; but if a permanent home is available in both States or in neither of them, that individual shall be deemed to be a resident only of the State with which the individual ' s personal and economic relations are closer (centre of vital interests);


b) if the State in which the centre of vital interests is situated cannot be determined, the individual shall be deemed to be a resident only of the State of which that individual is a national.

3.  
Where by reason of the provisions of paragraph 1 a person other than an individual is a resident of both Contracting States, the person shall not be entitled to any benefits provided by the Convention except that the provisions of Article 24 shall apply.
