Andorra Implements Non-Residents 10% Flat Tax

Andorra historically had no income or capital gains taxes on residents and non-residents.  In 2007, to slow property inflation, the government levied a 15% capital gains tax.

In late December 2010, Andorra published the Taxation of Non-Residents Act, 2010.  It subjects non-resident companies and individuals to a 10% flat tax on local-source profits and income, minus permitted expenses and deductions.  It plans to reduce capital gains tax on property from 15% to 10% in the near future.

The government plans on introducing a value-added tax to replace the existing consumption tax.  Following the imposition of a 5% VAT, the government next intends to apply the 10% flat tax to resident companies and individuals.
