Immigration, citizenship and taxation: what’s the comparative residency threshold?
Room C4.9, Convention Centre, Level 4

A resident for tax purposes and a resident for immigration have both important and distinct differences in the global market context. This has major implications for companies and individuals alike. The panel will seek to differentiate between the types of residency for the respective purposes, discuss the critical aspects of tax on visa considerations and introduce the concept of the comparative residency threshold.
