DTAs serve to relieve the double taxation of income that is earned in one jurisdiction by a resident of another. The Singapore – Kenya DTA signed on 12 June 2018 provides relief from double taxation in the situation where income is subject to tax for both countries.
The provisions of the DTA apply to persons who are residents of one or both of the Contracting States. Please refer to IRAS for more information regarding the agreement between Singapore and Kenya for the avoidance of double taxation and the prevention of fiscal evasion with respect to taxes on income.
