(1) Royalties arising in a Contracting State and paid to a resident of the other Contracting State may be taxed in that other State.
(2) However such royalties may also be taxed in the Contracting State in which they arise and according to the laws of that State, but if the beneficial owner of the royalties is a resident of the other Contracting State, the tax thus charged shall not exceed 20 percent of the gross amount of the royalties.
(3) The term "royalties" as used in this Article means payments of any kind received as a consideration for the use of, or the right to use, any copyright in literary, artistic or scientific work, including cinematographic films, and films and tapes used for radio and television broadcasting; for the use of, or the right to use, any patent, trademark, design or model, plan, secret formula or process; for the use of, or the right to use industrial, commercial, or scientific equipment or information relating to industrial, commercial, or scientific experience.
(4) The provisions of paragraphs (1) and (2) shall not apply if the beneficial owner of the royalties, being a resident of a Contracting State, carries on business in the other Contracting State in which the royalties arise, through a permanent establishment situated therein, or performs in that other State, independent personal services from a fixed base situated therein, and the right or property, in respect of which the royalties are paid, is effectively connected with such permanent establishment or fixed base. In such case, the provisions of Article 7 or Article 14, as the case may be, shall apply.
(5) Royalties shall be deemed to arise in a Contracting State if the payer is that State itself, one of its political subdivisions, local authorities or statutory bodies or a resident of that State. However, where the person paying the royalties, whether he is a resident of a Contracting State or not, has in a Contracting State a permanent establishment or a fixed base in connection with which the liability to pay the royalties was incurred, and such royalties are borne by such permanent establishment or fixed base, then such royalties shall be deemed to arise in the State in which the permanent establishment or fixed base is situated.
(6) Whereby reason of a special relationship, either between the payer and the beneficial owner or between both of them and some other person, the amount of the royalties, having regard to the use, right of use or information for which they are paid, exceeds the amount which would have been agreed upon by the payer and the beneficial owner of the royalties in the absence of such special relationship, the provisions of this Article shall apply only to the last-mentioned amount. In such case, the excess part of the payments shall remain taxable according to the laws of each Contracting State, due regard being had to the other provisions of this Convention.
