1. Taxation overview and jurisdiction tax rate

This section will give you an overview of the taxation in different jurisdictions that you are considering incorporating your company in, so you will know the different tax treatments for business entities.

The taxation overview is a used for exploring the main points of taxation, company law and accounting of a company and its owners. Its aim is to assess the company’s operations and their organisation, while looking at the big picture and complying with all relevant regulations.

The taxation overview is not a tax audit. It looks not only at taxation but also checks other perspectives of the company’s operations, such as company law and the business owner’s long- and short-term objectives.

Below you can find the tax rate for each jurisdiction.
