Double taxation agreements (also known as double taxation agreements or conventions) (DBAs) are primarily aimed at reducing double legal taxation. A double taxation agreement is an agreement between (as a general rule) two jurisdictions that assign tax duties to different income and profit elements between them. As a general rule, the DBA reduces double taxation by removing or limiting taxation in the county where income or profits are generated (tax of the source state) or by requiring that the country in which the taxor is established grant, through a credit or exemption mechanism, an exemption for taxation at source. The Gibraltar Income Tax Office recently issued guidelines for tax payers on how to apply the treaty mutual agreement procedure. The amount of relief depends on the “double taxation agreement” between the UK and the country of origin of your income. Here you will find information on UK tax treaties, associated tax documents and multilateral agreements. The United Kingdom has concluded a series of bilateral tax cooperation agreements through the exchange of information. Contact HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) or receive professional tax assistance if you are unsure or need help to facilitate double taxation. The UK has mutual agreements with a number of countries on the EU Directive on the taxation of savings income in the form of interest. The United Kingdom has also concluded a number of non-reciprocal agreements on the European Savings Tax Directive.

The main effect of the treaty is to eliminate double taxation between residents of Gibraltar and/or the United Kingdom on income and profit taxation.
The treaty further strengthens economic relations between the two regions before Brexit and, although it is based on the organisation for economic co-operation and development (OECD) model, some major differences appear, which are highlighted in this article. When a person other than a person is established in both territories, the competent authorities of the territories endeavour to determine by mutual agreement the territory whose territory is considered to be resident for the purposes of the treaty, taking into account its actual place of management, the place of registration or other reasons, and other relevant factors. As a general rule, they still receive relief, even if there is no agreement, unless the foreign tax does not correspond to UK income tax or capital gains tax.
