Worldwide income in the middle east

Postby Cap_Scarlet » Fri May 17, 2019 5:06 pm

I may have an opportunity to work in the middle east in a way that I would establish residence and therefore any local earnings would be tax free.

Question: Does that apply to worldwide income? I have other income taxed at source from another country, can I claim the tax back?

Only if that country has a tax treaty with the other country and allows the tax free country the sole taxing rights.

To be honest that's highly unlikely.
