Latvia and the European Union
Since the 1th of May, 2004, Latvia is a member of the European Union, which is a guarantee of security. Therefore the currency of the country is the euro. The last years has been influenced by a stabilization policy that has allowed a sustained GDP growth of the country. The Latvian economy now has stable indicators and an environment that is favorable to the exercise of a professional activity.
Taxation in Latvia
Latvia has an interesting tax system, but the country is not a tax haven. The VAT, called PVN (Pievienotas Vertibas Nodokli) in Latvian is 21%. For certain categories of goods or services, the percent may fall to 12%.
The tax rate on foreign or resident companies is 15%, and 9% for microenterprises.
Thus, Latvia is paying attention to issues of tax fraud. It is also linked to France by a double taxation convention since 1997, to avoid tax evasion.
