Tax Treaties

Governments adopt different systems of taxing the incomes of their residents. Some systems base their right to tax on the source of income, and will tax all income earned in their territory. Others tax their citizens on the basis of their residence, and they will tax them residents on their worldwide income.  When a resident of a country that bases its right to tax on residence basis decides to invest or perform services in country that taxes on a source basis, double taxation is likely to occur. This would create a barrier for the international movements of capital and skills. To overcome this barrier, countries sign bilateral tax treaties to share taxation rights on certain types of income and also to avaoid fiscal eveasion. This page highlights the important aspects of  Zambia’s tax treaty network, which inludes:
