Elimination of Double Taxation

(1) In the case of a resident of New Zealand, double taxation shall be eliminated as follows:

  • Subject to the provisions of the laws of New Zealand which relate to the allowance of a credit against New Zealand income tax of tax paid in a country outside New Zealand (which shall not affect the general principle of this Article), Czech tax paid under the laws of the Czech Republic and consistent with this Agreement, in respect of income derived by a resident of New Zealand from sources in the Czech Republic (excluding, in the case of a dividend, tax paid in respect of the profits out of which the dividend is paid) shall be allowed as a credit against New Zealand tax payable in respect of that income.

(2) In the case of a resident of the Czech Republic, double taxation shall be eliminated as follows:

  • The Czech Republic, when imposing taxes on its residents, may include in the tax base upon which such taxes are imposed the items of income which according to the provisions of this Agreement may also be taxed in New Zealand, but shall allow as a deduction from the amount of tax computed on such a base an amount equal to the tax paid in New Zealand. Such deduction shall not, however, exceed that part of the Czech tax, as computed before the deduction is given, which is appropriate to the income which, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, may be taxed in New Zealand.

(3) Where in accordance with any provision of the Agreement income derived by a resident of a Contracting State is exempt from tax in that State, such State may nevertheless, in calculating the amount of tax on the remaining income of such resident, take into account the exempted income.
