  • Valid Tax Residency certificate (TRC) issued by the relevant tax authorities in your country of residence when requested. Each country’s TRC has a different format and may contain different information.

A TRC typically contains:

  1. Name of the country providing the TRC
  2. Name of the taxpayer
  3. Year(s) to which the TRC applies
If you need a TRC, please obtain it from your local tax authorities and make sure your TRC is available when taking the Tax Interview. A PDF copy of your TRC is acceptable.
