Taxes covered by the UAE – India double tax treaty

The income, the corporate tax, the dividends, the royalties, the pensions and the wages cannot be levied twice, as mentioned in the double taxation convention between the UAE and India. In other words, Indian companies with permanent establishments in the UAE will pay the corporate tax only in UAE due to its business registered here. We remind that persons having residency and working in the UAE will not be taxed on the personal incomes, as such levy is not imposed for personal revenues in the country. But if you are a citizen of India with profits in the UAE and also in the home country, you will be levied in both states, in accordance with the local laws.
