Bahrain China Tax Treaty


October 2013
Bahrain and China signed on September 16, 2013 a new protocol replacing the existing 2002 double tax treaty between the two countries.
According to the tax treaty the tax withholding rate for payments of dividends is 10%. The tax withholding rate for payments of interest and royalties remains as before.

The new tax treaty has yet to be ratified by the parliaments of both countries.
In general double tax treaties between two countries are boosting mutual investments between the countries offering reduced tax withholding rates from payments of dividends, interest and royalties.
The tax treaty often includes an exchange of tax information clause and definition of a permanent establishment for activities carried in the other country.
It also clarifies certain cross border tax issues.
E.g the treaty would define in what country tax is to be paid when a service supplier/consultant from country A provides services in country B.
In some treaties there is a tax credit under certain terms. E.g. an exemption to a consultant from country A of X dollars per each day of staying in country B in order to supply the taxable services.
