The IGR (General Income Tax) tax rate regularly applied to companies amounts to 17% of the net revenues. However, Law No. 71/2013 (and subsequent Law No. 115/2017) has reduced this tax rate to 8.5% for 5 years of business activity for newly established enterprises whose partners didn’t run a business in San Marino in the previous year and hire an employee within 6 months (who could even be the administrator) and a second employee within 24 months of activity.
In addition to the 8.5%, a 5% withholding tax must be taken into account, which is applied to revenues distributed directly to natural persons even if, based on the double taxation treaty with Italy, this withholding tax in Italy is deductible from the income statement.Download legal references in english language
Corporate income tax
The corporate income tax is established by applying the 17% proportional tax rate on the taxable income.
Profits produced from 01/01/2014 and distributed to natural persons from the corporations are subject to a 5% final withholding tax. The profits distributed to individuals other than natural persons are not subject to any withholding tax as long as the recipient declares to the company which has distributed the profits that he does not act on behalf of a natural person.
Income tax of natural persons
