There are no capital gains or inheritance taxes in Antigua & Barbuda. Personal income tax was re-introduced in 2005 and the current tax rates starts at 10% and increases to 25% on chargeable income in excess of EC$25,000 per month or EC$180,000 per annum. Each individual has a personal allowance of EC$36,000 per annum. Individuals who are in the country temporarily (i.e. less than 183 days a year) will only be taxed on income arising in or derived from Antigua & Barbuda. Individuals who have their permanent residence in the country or are present for at least 183 days per year will qualify as residents of Antigua & Barbuda and will be subject to tax on their worldwide income. However, proposed amendments to Part 111, Section 5 of the Income Tax Act will change taxation on worldwide income to taxation limited to locally sourced income. The proposed Bill is expected to become law in October 2013.
The business and corporate tax rate is 25% of net profits, although attractive concessions are available to qualifying companies.
Property tax is levied on all properties in Antigua but not in Barbuda. The taxable value is based upon the property's current market value construction replacement cost with the applicable tax rate dependent upon the classification of the property (residential or commercial).
