Default Taxes from working abroad?

Hello. My family and I are wanting to move to Grand Cayman under the "Residency Certificate for Persons of Independent Means". We would be living in Grand Cayman with a residency certificate, but my husband will be working abroad in Canada and will be communting once a month to Grand Cayman.

My question is... will we still have to pay income tax for Canada if we hold residency for Grand Cayman?

If anyone is living in Grand Cayman and working abroad who have some experience to share that would be wonderful. Thank you.

Really, this is a question for a Canadian lawyer with expertise in Canadian taxes. Off the cuff, I would say that "working... in Canada" is more likely than not the same as "resident of Canada for tax purposes". And, incidentally, "domiciled for death-duties purposes" too. But a Canadian lawyer might be able to work something out for you!

But he wouldn't be living in Cayman would he? You would be. He'd be living and working in Canada as a tax resident. Look at the 183 day rule that exists for most countries.
I lived in Cayman and had a visa to live in the US but I was only in the US for less than 4 months of the year so I was "tax" resident in Cayman.

You have not indicated what passport you hold. Residence in Cayman is not material to taxation, which is governed by tax treaties, if any between Canada and the nationality of the employee working in Canada.

I agree with Gordon, get a tax accountant in Canada.

Or, consult the HR, or payroll Department of the company.
