Grenada Tax Rates

Grenada personal Income Tax

Individual income tax rate in Grenada is 30%.

An individual who is resident, ordinarily resident and domiciled in Grenada is subject to income tax on his or her worldwide income as it arises. Non-residents are subject to tax on income accruing directly or indirectly from the carrying on of business in Grenada. Income from any source other than from the carrying on of business shall be liable to withholding tax and not form part of the assessable income.

Broadly, an individual is domiciled in the country or state which he regards as his permanent home. He acquires a domicile of origin at birth, normally that of his father, and retains it until he acquires a new domicile of choice. To acquire a domicile of choice, a person must sever his ties with his domicile of origin and settle in another country with the clear intention of making it his permanent home.

In ascertaining the chargeable income of an individual who is resident in Grenada, the amount of $60,000 per annum is allowed as a deduction. A 30% tax rate is applied to the excess.

The Pay-As-You-Earn (PAYE) system of collection is in operation. The employers, who act as agents, deduct tax from employees' gross monthly emoluments. The tax so deducted must be remitted to the Inland Revenue Department by the 7th day of the month following the period for which the deduction was made. Any tax deducted and not paid within the time specified shall bear interest at the rate of 2% per month or part thereof for the period during which it remains unpaid.

Employees whose income was in excess of EC$60,000 are required to furnish annual income tax returns and attach certification from the employer by the end of March following the year of assessment.

All employees are also charged a National Reconstruction Levy (NRL) on income in excess of EC$1,000 per month at the rate of 3%.


 

Grenada Company Tax

The rate of tax on companies in Grenada is 30%.

Grenadian resident companies are liable to income tax on all sources of nonexempt income wherever arising. A company is regarded as resident in Grenada if its central management and control is located and exercised in Grenada or if it was incorporated in Grenada. A non-resident company is taxed on income of a branch carrying on a trade or business in Grenada, i.e. the income arises in Grenada.

The tax year or 'year of assessment' is a period 12 months commencing on 1 January in each year. Companies are assessed tax on their income that arises in the basis period. Where the company usually makes up its accounts for a period other than the calendar year, this period will be substituted for the calendar year. The company is expected to submit its tax return by the end of March or three months following the year of assessment and pay any balance of tax due. The company is required by law to make monthly advanced payments of income tax based on the results of the preceding year (estimated tax). Any balance of tax is due and payable when the return is filed.

There is no income tax on capital gains secured on the disposal of capital assets. However, there is a transfer property tax of 5% of the value of property sold with or without improvement.

Foreign buying into foreign: each pays 15%.

Stamp tax is paid on the gross income of businesses. Tax rates are as follows:

Gross annual income of over EC$30,000 but less than EC$100,000: 0.25%
Gross annual income exceeding EC$100,000: 0.5%
