            Taxation and Financial Reporting for Companies in Bulgaria

            Bulgaria is not an offshore jurisdiction, although it is often referred to as that. Perhaps this statement is due to the fact that Bulgaria has the lowest rate of income tax - 10%. The tax is calculated as a 10% difference between all receipts to the cash register or to the company's current account and the actual expenses incurred to do business. However, if you have a branch in Bulgaria, you are not required to pay income tax from the parent company.

            Tax on dividends received from abroad - 0-10%. Tax on dividends paid abroad is 0-5%. The standard VAT rate is 20%. If a company produces goods for export, the VAT rate is 0%. Individual entrepreneurs pay income tax of 15%.

            In addition, limited liability companies are required to pay:

            • social security and pension insurance contributions (up to 35.5%);
            • health insurance (4.8% is paid by the company and 3.2% is paid by the employee).

            It is obligatory to maintain and file financial statements. Income tax reports are issued annually. VAT reports are handed over monthly.
