When relocating or expanding to the Dominican Republic Free Zones, companies can benefit from their advantageous tax structure. These benefits help companies to lower their operating costs and simplify and reduce trade barriers among other things. Our Free Zones' law grants both national and foreign investors a 100% exemption in the payment of national and local taxes, income tax, value-added tax (ITBIS), import taxes (tariffs), selective tax on insurance and fuels, tax on patents, and assets and equity among others.
Exemptions are applicable during the entire period of operation of the company, renewable every 15 years. The main requirement for the classification of a company under the Free Zone program is that the majority of manufactured products and services offered have international markets as their final destination.
When considering how the tax structure might serve your company, a Free Zone representative will be your best asset to guide you through the process and answer any questions you might have.
