    • 10% “Flat” Corporate Tax:
      The Bulgarian company is a useful asset to any business person aiming to reduce his expenses and improve the profit margins. The aim of this reduced and flat tax burden is to allow entrepreneurs to invest more freely, without fear of sudden rate changes. This allows for a higher return on investments and makes Bulgaria a highly respected destination for foreign capital.
    • 5% Dividend Tax:
      Bulgaria’s low Dividend Tax puts the Bulgarian company at an advantage compared to most other EU and world jurisdictions. It promotes the voluntary declaration of profit, and its purpose is to aid in thedeclaration of company income.
    • Registrar efficiency:
      The Bulgarian Trade Registrar is among those with the most reliable access to company data. The information stated in the Registrar is considered true until proven otherwise, which helps the safety of the commercial transactions and promotes honest business dealings.
    • Banking Stability:
      Most of the banks in Bulgaria are owned by major European banks, which underwent extensive stress tests in the years following the banking crisis. Bulgarian banks have easy access to liquidity funds, and company accounts up to 196 000 Leva (100 000 Euro) are guaranteed by the Bulgarian National Bank against bankruptcy.
    • Stable monetary policy:
      According to the terms of Bulgaria’s Monetary Board Agreement with the International Monetary Fund, the exchange rate for Bulgarian Levis fixed to the Euro at the rate of EUR 1 = 1.95583 leva. For the last 18 years the Bulgarian National Bank has had no power to emit leva without the necessary foreign currency reserves.
    • Low Government debt:
      Bulgaria’s balanced budget macroeconomic policies since the years of the financial crisis are the reason for the government’s extremely low debt. In 2015 the country maintained within 25% government debt to GDP – 3 times lower than the EU average.


    • Underdeveloped information infrastructure:
      Many of the procedures related to the administration of a company in Bulgaria are not yet available as electronic services with the authorities, and therefore require printing and mailing of the necessary documents. Despite the introduction of the Electronic Government Act in 2008, some government institutions do not yet fully recognize certified e-mail or the electronic signature as confirmation of the identity of the sender.
