Gibraltar confirms the abolition of the tax exempt regime

Low-tax jurisdictions have no plans to follow Gibraltar’s lead and introduce
a standard 10% rate of corporate tax for both domestic and multinational
companies.

Government officials in Gibraltar have confirmed the abolition of the tax
exempt regime which currently means many multinationals attract a corporate tax
rate of 0%.

Malcolm Couch, head of income tax division on the Isle of Man, said the
jurisdiction’s tiered corporate tax system will remain. The Isle of Man has a
standard rate of corporate tax of 0% and a higher rate of 10% which applies to
the income of licensed banks. Couch said while tax is a factor in investment
decisions, ‘it is one of many that need to be considered and certainly isn’t the
principal one’.

Geoff Cook, CEO of Jersey Finance, said there are no plans to change the
corporate tax structure, but fiscal policy ‘is kept under review.’

Gibraltar’s chief minister Peter Caruana said companies could ‘easily go to
Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, but they’re not… they’re not here just for
the difference between 0% and 10% tax’.
