Taxation of international executives
With the exception of the Payroll Tax (summarized below), there is no income tax, capital gains tax, or withholding tax in Bermuda. Tax revenue is derived primarily from the payroll tax, customs/import duties, real property tax, corporate services tax, and fuel taxes.
The Bermuda tax authority is the Office of the Tax Commissioner (“OTC”).
The official currency is the Bermuda Dollar (BMD) which is at par with the US Dollar. Both USD and BMD are widely accepted.
