Kyrgyzstan Corporate - Withholding taxes

Income of a non-resident deemed as income from sources in Kyrgyzstan that is not connected with a PE is subject to taxation at source of payment, without applying deductions, at the following rates:

  • Dividends and interest: 10%.
  • Insurance premiums received under risk insurance or re-insurance agreements: 5%.
  • Authors fees and royalties: 10%.
  • Income from telecommunication or freight services in international communication and transportation between Kyrgyzstan and other countries: 5%.
  • Other services and activities: 10%.

WHT applies to Kyrgyzstan-source income regardless of whether the payment is made within or outside of Kyrgyzstan.

The application of DTTs often effectively provides a reduction of WHT rates or an income tax exemption. Note that the application of treaty privileges is not necessarily automatic, and taxpayers may need to comply with certain administrative procedures to secure relief.

Double taxation treaty (DTT) relief

Kyrgyzstan has enforced DTTs with 27 countries and 3 DTTs that are pending. In cases when certain DTTs envisage the tax rates applying for taxation of dividends, interest, or royalties that exceed the rates envisaged by the Kyrgyzstan domestic tax legislation, we believe that such income is subject to taxation at the rate envisaged by the above-mentioned tax legislation. Information outlined in the below table is provided for application by business entities. The below table does not represent tax provisions provided by respective DTTs for government-owned legal entities, governmental institutions, or governmental organisations (central/national banks).
