In general, annual corporation tax returns must be filed no later than six months after the end of the financial year and by 1 September after the end of the financial year at the latest.

For companies with year-end between 1 January and 31 March, the tax returns are due in the same year. Companies with year-end 31 March 2021, at the latest, must include this period in the 2020 tax return.

A tax assessment will be issued after the filing of the tax return. This shows the assessed taxable income and the tax to be paid by the company.

The corporate tax rate is 22 %.
