  • The most Competitive Incentives for Global Players

    A comprehensive incentive package is the mainstay of Puerto Rico‘s export and investment promotion strategy. It is a set of incentives and benefits granted by the Government of Puerto Rico as tools for business growth.

    While exporting to new markets carries risks, a strategic move for growth can be one of the best things you ever do for your business. Puerto Rico offers the appropriate environment for global players, encouraging companies to serve the world from the island. Newcomers to Puerto Rico can benefit from 4% corporate tax rates, access to a high-performing workforce, and top-notch facilities minutes away from the World's best beaches. Meanwhile, local companies in Puerto Rico can also leverage the incentives to expand their services and targets outside the island, promoting the development of new businesses in Puerto Rico and strengthening the ecosystem of foreign service providers on the Island.

    Incentive Power Bundle:

    • 4% fixed income tax rate on income related to the export of services
    • 100% tax exemption on income tax rate from dividends or profit distributions
    • 50% tax credit for research and development (R&D) on all payments to Puerto Rico resident companies and individuals
    • 40% tax credit for film production on all payments to Puerto Rico resident businesses and individuals

    It is important to point out that Puerto Rico operates as a Foreign Tax Structure, where federal income taxes don’t apply. It works under a Controlled Foreign Corporation (CFCs) tax treatment, in which federal income taxes are differed until repatriation of profits.
