Updates to the list of low tax or tax-free countries and territories 

The Cabinet Regulation of 17 December 2020 ‘Regulations Regarding Low-Tax or Tax-Free Countries and Territories’ is expected to be amended, from 1 January 2023, by supplementing the list of low-tax or tax-free countries and territories with three new jurisdictions:

  • Anguillan territory;
  • Commonwealth of The Bahamas;
  • Turks and Caicos Islands Territory.

Thus, should the amendments be approved, effective from 1 January 2023, the list of low-tax or tax-free countries and territories will contain twelve jurisdictions:

  • Anguillan territory,
  • Territory of American Guam,
  • Territory of American Samoa,
  • Territory of the U.S. Virgin Islands,
  • Commonwealth of The Bahamas,
  • the Republic of Fiji,
  • the Republic of Palau,
  • the Republic of Panama,
  • the Independent State of Samoa,
  • Turks and Caicos Islands Territory,
  • the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago,
  • the Republic of Vanuatu.

The aim of the Cabinet Regulation’s draft amendment is to match the EU list of non-cooperative jurisdictions for tax purposes updated on 4 October 2022.

Please note that the list of low-tax or tax-free countries and territories should be used both for the purposes of corporate income tax and personal income tax.
