The Georgian economy is said to be the fastest growing in the region of Eastern Europe. Tax policies were formulated towards businesses to grow rapidly, reduce unemployment and feed the economy substantially. In Georgia, there is no corporate tax if you reinvest, however, 20% tax is levied if the profit is withdrawn. The designated Free Industrial Zones offer no tax on corporate income, import, properties and even no VAT. Income outside Georgian borders is never taxed. Relief from customs duties or VAT on importing raw materials for export can be had just with the help of an Internal Processing Customs Regime license. With all these, it won’t be a misnomer to call Georgia an emerging tax haven! Georgia has the finest of climate for business-ease and has a wholesome marketplace for financial services and insurance companies.
