Currently in the Republic of Moldova is applied the 4% income tax rate on income from operating activities; dividend tax is 6%. At the same time, Moldova has signed agreements on avoidance of double taxation with more than 45 countries in the world that allow to optimize the tax base when paying of dividends, as well as in the process of drawing up tax planning strategies.
