According to the legal enactments of the Republic of Latvia, a capital company registered in Latvia pays corporate income tax (CIT) on distributed dividends at the rate of 20%. When determining the base subject to corporate income tax, the value of the taxable object is divided by a coefficient of 0.8. Residents of Latvia - natural persons, when receiving dividends, shall not pay personal income tax, because the CIT paid by the capital company also includes this tax.
Non-residents - natural persons may be obliged to pay personal income tax on dividends paid by a capital company registered in Latvia at the rate and in accordance with the procedure stipulated in the legal enactments of the country of residence.
For non-resident legal entities, even if the country of registration has a lower CIT tax rate, a tax rate of 20% will be applied when paying dividends from a capital company registered in Latvia.
