Foreign tax relief
Individuals whose home country is Rwanda can claim credits in Rwanda for foreign taxes suffered on foreign income. The credits are generally limited to the lower of the foreign taxes paid and Rwandan taxes due. The foreign tax suffered must be substantiated by appropriate evidence (i.e. tax declaration, WHT certificate, or other acceptable document) for the credit to be granted.
Rwanda has double tax treaties (DTTs) with Barbados, Belgium, Jersey, Mauritius, Morocco, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.
