Expat taxes


There are almost no borders for labour or capital in the modern world. People from abroad can easily find a legal job in Estonia and other countries. Due to liberal taxation Estonia hosting more and more international companies.

Estonian and foreign companies may employ expats – foreign citizens holding a work permit. But taxation of a foreign employee differs from the taxation of an Estonian one, and the differences applicable both for the expat and the employer shall be taken into consideration.
