Factors luring foreigners to consider Bulgaria for doing business:

Extremely lenient tax policies

Bulgaria holds one of the lowest corporate and personal income tax rates in EU and worldwide – 10%, whilst Social Security Contributions are as well the lowest in EU. Dividends are taxed at 5%. Bulgaria has signed double-taxation avoidance treaties with over 60 countries.

Low costs and a potent workforce

the country holds one of the lowest average wages in the EU. However, there is an increasing number of highly skilled and educated personnel as an effect of the continuous EU funding and the booming IT sector in Bulgaria (many IT world giants are outsourcing activities in the country). Furthermore, the prices of raw materials, business costs and other services are as well at quite low levels in comparison to Western Countries.

Stable fiscal policies

The Bulgarian currency (lev) is fixed to the EUR (1EUR=1.9558). Since Bulgaria has joined the EU (2006), the economy has kept steady growth in a time of world uncertainty and the banking system has maintained excellent ratings and relations with foreign banks and other partners.

Swift and easy administrative and legal procedures

Normally the Bulgarian government has adopted a policy of reducing heavy regulatory and administrative burden on businesses in all sectors in order to stimulate entrepreneurship and foreign investment.

Excellent geopolitical location

Bulgaria is a transitional crossroad and transit territory between Western Europe, the Middle East and the Mediterranean. A number of major European transport corridors pass through Bulgaria. Paired with great nature and hospitable people, this only contributes to the number of other factors which makes Bulgaria an excellent place for business.
