Tax Compliance

Income tax is a government levy tax typically imposed on individuals, companies and other organizations who qualify to pay income tax to a government.

Tax is paid on a sliding scale based on the taxed entity’s income or profits. As the tax laws and compliances many vary widely in most countries, it is essential to understand the taxing system of the particular country you plan on generating an income in.

Individuals are often taxed at different rates than corporations while estates and trusts are usually subject to further special tax provisions.

Residents and non-residents are generally taxed differently too. Typically non-residents are taxed on very specific types of income while residents, however, are generally subject to income tax.

The correct registration, calculation and payment of any country’s income tax is considered serious and may as a result also be a rather complicated process.
