Isle of Man: 2024 budget includes proposed increases in corporate and individual income tax rates

Proposed tax changes

Proposed tax changes

The Treasury Minister yesterday presented the budget for 2024 which includes the following proposed tax changes:

  • Increase to 22% in the top rate of individual (personal) income tax for both residents and nonresidents effective 6 April 2024
  • Increases to thresholds and limits under the national insurance system effective 6 April 2024
  • Changes to “zero/ten” corporate income tax regime
    • Temporary increase from 10% to 15% to the rate of tax applicable to profits from banking business and from “large” retail operations effective for the 2024/2025 tax year only (aimed at situations in which these profits would otherwise be subject to so-called “top-up tax” in other jurisdictions as a result of implementation of the Pillar Two global minimum tax rules)
    • Introduction of a 20% rate on income from petroleum (including natural gas) extraction activities effective 6 April 2024
  • Changes to the calculation of benefits-in-kind in respect of the provision of cars and fuel, with the broad effect that the amount of tax benefits will shift from being based on cylinder capacity to being based on a combination of the value of the car and its emission levels

The Treasury Minister also referred to a newly published “Tax Strategy” that will be presented for discussion next month which is expected to set out a clear intention to retain the zero/ten system as well as a commitment to not introducing any new taxes on capital gains or wealth.
