Expat Chat Episode 69 – What Is A Double Taxation Agreement?


Welcome to the sixty ninth episode of the #Expatchat podcast where we discuss the latest tax and financial issues affecting an #Australianexpat.

In today’s Expat Chat we talk about what is a Double Taxation Agreement (DTA) and how it affects Australian expats.

Tax treaties are formal bilateral agreements between two jurisdictions.

Australia has tax treaties with more than 40 jurisdictions.

A tax treaty is also referred to as a tax convention or double tax agreement (DTA).

They prevent double taxation and fiscal evasion, and foster cooperation between Australia and other international tax authorities by enforcing their respective tax laws.

You may not have heard of a DTA however with the new proposed tax residency rules they are going to become more important in the every day expats life and will feature more prominently in a Australians expat day to day conversations.
