Why Bulgaria

Legislation of Bulgaria is based on EU rules (Member of the EU from 2007). Bulgaria has adopted the most popular EU Directives (on VAT, Interests & Royalties, Parent Subsidiary, etc.). At the same time Bulgaria keeps the lowest Corporate Income Tax rate in the European Union 10%. After Cyprus raised up its income tax flat rate to 12,5%, Bulgaria's 10% rate is now officially the lowest in EU. Distribution of dividends to private persons and non-resident entities is subject to 5% withholding tax only. Wile EU resident shareholders enjoy 0% withholding tax rate as per EU Parent Subsidiary Directive.
