Gratuity payment from employer before moving processed after arriving

Discussion in 'Canadian Finance and Taxation' started by chilkootcee, Apr 14, 2018.

  1. My husband worked up until the day before we left the UAE and subsequently his gratuity payment was processed after we landed in Canada. Does this mean he would have to pay taxes on this gratuity payment even though it is an amount based on his employment prior to moving to Canada?

    Thanks.
     
  2. You will need to consult the UAE-Canada tax treaty on this one, and ideally a professional who is familiar with said treaty.

    Article 15 seems relevant:
