The taxpayers in question, who may have submitted some of the documents required or none at all, are at any rate obliged to provide the certificates that will confirm they have indeed moved their residence or their main professional activity to another country. Greeks living abroad will need to produce the following documents:
– Papers confirming that the taxpayer and their dependent family members are permanent residents of another country, such as a certificate from the state or municipal or other recognized authorities, proof of children’s education or home rental contract, or proof of owner residence abroad if that applies.
– A tax residence certificate, issued by the foreign tax authority, that illustrates that the taxpayer is resident in that country. If the taxpayer has settled in a country that has an agreement with Greece to avoid double taxation and has an income from this country, they can produce an application to avoid double taxation that carries the tax residence certificate and is in both languages.
