ARTICLE 28AMiscellaneous rules applicable to certain offshore activities

(1) The provisions of this Article shall apply notwithstanding any other provision of this Convention where activities are carried on offshore in connection with the exploration for or exploitation of oil or gas in the sea-bed and subsoil (in this Article called “offshore activities”) situated in a Contracting State.

(2) An enterprise of a Contracting State which carries on offshore activities in the other Contracting State shall be deemed to be carrying on a business in that other Contracting State through a permanent establishment situated therein.

(3) A resident of a Contracting State who carries on offshore activities in the other Contracting State, which consist of professional services or other activities of an independent character, shall be deemed to be performing those activities from a fixed base in that other Contracting State.

(4) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (2) of this Article, profits derived by an enterprise of a Contracting State from the operation, in connection with offshore activities, of ships or aircraft which are in their existing state designed primarily for the purpose of transporting supplies or personnel, or of tugboats or anchor handling vessels, shall be taxable only in the State in which the place of effective management of the enterprise is situated. However, the provisions of this paragraph shall not apply to profits derived during any period in which such a ship or aircraft is contracted to be used mainly for purposes other than to transport supplies or personnel to or between places where offshore activities are being carried on.

(b)Subject to sub-paragraph (c) of this paragraph, salaries, wages and similar remuneration derived by a resident of a Contracting State in respect of an employment exercised aboard a ship or aircraft, to the profits from the operation of which paragraph (4) of this Article applies, shall be taxable only in the Contracting State in which the place of effective management of the enterprise is situated.

(c)Unless documentary evidence is produced to the competent authority of the other Contracting State that arrangements have been made for the payment of tax thereon in the Contracting State which has the sole right to tax the remuneration in accordance with sub-paragraph (a) or (b) of this paragraph, such remuneration may also be taxed in that other Contracting State.
