If you work remotely (either employed or freelance) for a US or EU company/client but reside in a country with a territorial tax system. Do you still have to pay tax and if so, where?

If you are a United States citizen, you are liable for US income tax no matter where in the world you are working and getting paid. That would be in addition to any local income tax liabilities, although that would offset the amount you might still have to pay to the IRS. If you are not a U S citizen, you should only have to pay the local income tax depending on how long you are absent from your country of citizenship if that is not where you are working.
