WHY CHANGING YOUR TAX RESIDENCE TO BULGARIA?Bulgaria – a heaven in the European tax system
Lowest taxes in Europe
We’ll let the facts speak for itself:
- Corporate tax: 10% (the average corporate tax rate in Europe is 25%)
- Personal income tax: 10% (the average personal income tax rate in Europe is 40%)
- Dividend tax: 5% (0% when the European parent/subsidiary directive applies)
To make it even better, the Bulgarian tax law, recognize up to 40% expenses of the freelancers (natural persons) without any kind of a proof.
» In Bulgaria, both businesses and citizens have a flat tax rate of 10%. It doesn’t matter how much you earn or what you do, whether they are capital gains, royalties, dividends, rental income or anything else, you pay 10% tax and that’s it. No hidden taxes no hidden obligations!

In this case, he company will need to pay 10 000 corporate tax to the BG government. His net profit is 90 000 EUR. If Mr. Smith wants to distribute dividends he will need to pay 5 % more on the net profit or 4 500 EUR. That’s all. Nothing more.
