If an individual is considered to be a resident of Aruba, the individual is subject to income tax over his/hers world wide income. If the individual conducts an enterprise, different regulations apply to determine the taxable income, which regulations are similar to the corporate income tax. If you have any income that is taxable in Aruba, it is mandatory to fill in your income tax return. Even if you have not received a income tax return, it is mandatory to request for a tax return from the Aruban tax authorities.

Resident and non-resident individuals are subject to the same rates of income tax.

Sources of Income

Residents of Aruba are subject to income tax on their worldwide income from:

- Income from employment;
- Income from property (real estate);

- Certain periodic receipts (e.g. pension).

A non-resident is subject to Aruban income tax for income derived from amongst others:
- Income from employment (business or profession) performed on Aruba;
- Real estate situated in Aruba;
- Salary received as a managing director or supervisory board member of an Aruba company;
