What is tax residence?

In Andorra

Tax residence is the status that determines the country in which a person is taxable on their income. It is generally based on the place where a person usually resides, but there are also other criteria, such as the tax home and the centre of economic interests.

Tax residence is important because it determines :

  • Which country has the right to tax your income
  • The taxes you have to pay
  • The tax treaties from which you can benefit

Each country has its own tax residence rules. Before obtaining tax residency in Andorra, we advise you to make an appointment with one of our advisers to ensure that you comply with the tax obligations of the country you wish to leave.

Is it possible to retire in Andorra?

Retiring to Andorra is a simple way to maximise your income. As a resident of Andorra for tax purposes, you are exempt from CSG (Contribution Sociale Généralisée), CRDS (Contribution au Remboursement de la Dette Sociale) and CASA (Contribution Additionnelle de Solidarité pour l’Autonomie). In addition, as a pensioner in Andorra, you can benefit from the services of health institutions and hospitals and private insurance schemes.

How do I become a tax resident in Andorra?

It is often assumed that to be resident in Andorra for tax purposes, you only need to spend more than 183 days a year in the country. Unfortunately, this statement is incomplete and untrue, because depending on your country of origin, there may be a conflict of residence. The criteria for determining tax residence differ from one country to another.
Some countries have different criteria for defining tax residence. It is therefore necessary to respect the regulations between countries. All our consultants can help you with your expatriation project in Andorra to ensure that you comply with all the regulations in force.
Tax residency has major implications for your tax return and your tax obligations, so take the time to find out more from our legal and administrative assistance firm before making any decisions. Changing your tax residence is a real life project. We think it’s important to remember that our firm supports its clients for 24 months, which gives you the time you need to think things through, but also the opportunity to change your plans and make the appropriate changes thanks to our network of partners. For example, it is quite possible to have an economic activity in Andorra and therefore be entitled to tax residency, but to opt for tax residency at a later date, after several years.

What is the tax residence dispute?

Tax residency disputes arise when two countries consider a person to be a tax resident. There are different residence criteria for each country.
Let’s take an example to illustrate the tax residence conflict: Suppose you are of French nationality and you have a house in France where you live part of the year, but you also spend part of the year in Andorra where you have obtained a residence permit. France could consider you a tax resident because of your domicile in France, while Andorra could also consider you a tax resident because of your residence permit in that country. This creates a tax residence conflict, as both countries could seek to tax you on all or part of your worldwide income.
To avoid tax residency conflicts, many countries have signed international tax treaties (also known as double taxation treaties).
These treaties aim to clearly determine in which country a person will be considered a tax resident and to avoid double taxation on the same income. These treaties generally establish specific criteria for determining tax residence, such as the source of vital, economic and family interests.
Andorra has signed several treaties with the United Arab Emirates, Spain, France, Belgium, Liechtenstein and the United Kingdom.
