Corporate Income Tax

As a standard, foreign companies that are established as a permanent entity and earn profits from Russian sources are liable to pay 20 percent in Russian corporate tax on earnings. Both local and foreign companies are subject to the same Russian corporate tax rate. However, foreign companies only pay Russian taxes if they have a permanent organization or an administration board and earn profits from Russian sources.

Personal Income Tax

Russian residents are liable to personal income tax on their total income received in a calendar year. Non-residents are taxed on income received from sources in Russia. The personal income rate is 13% for all types of income received for residents, for non-residents 30%, except for the following:

  •       Excess interest income is taxed at 35%. 
  •       The value of any awards and prizes received during contests, games, and other events conducted for the purpose of advertising goods, work, and services, in excess of set limits, is taxed at 35%
