The treaty includes the provision that a permanent establishment will be deemed constituted when an enterprise furnishes services in a Contracting State through employees or other engaged personnel for the same or connected project for a period or periods aggregating more than 6 months within any 12-month period.
The following capital gains derived by a resident of one Contracting State may be taxed by the other State:
Gains from the alienation of other property by a resident of a Contracting State may only be taxed by that State.
Both countries apply the credit method for the elimination of double taxation.
Article 28 (Limitation on Benefits) includes the provision that no person will be entitled to the benefits of the treaty if its affairs were arranged in such a manner as if it was the main purpose or one of the main purposes to avoid taxes to which the treaty applies.
The treaty applies from 1 January 2017.
