Corporate profit tax law in the Republic of Serbia is regulated by Corporate Profit Tax Law.

The current corporate profit tax rate is set to 15 %, one of the lowest in Europe. Taxpayers can be granted tax incentives for the purpose of achieving economic policy aims relating to the fostering of economic growth and development of enterprises.

According to Corporate profit tax law legal entities obliged to pay the corporate profit, a tax is legal entities set up in the form of

  • General partnership,
  • Limited partnership,
  • Limited Liability Company and
  • Joint-stock company.

The tax period is defined as the financial year and taxpayers are divided into two groups,

  1. residents and
  2. non-residents.

So far we have assisted over 400 companies. Check out our experiences.

A resident of the Republic of Serbia is considered to be legal entity founded or having its head office managed or controlled from the territory of the Republic of Serbia. A foreign company is resident if incorporated in Serbia or have real management and control in Serbia. Resident entities are taxed on their worldwide income, generated in the territory of the Republic of Serbia or abroad.

Non-resident companies are taxed only on income generated in Serbia. 


The corporate profit tax base is a taxable profit of a company and it is established on the basis of accounting profit seen in company fiscal balance sheet. Corporate profit tax is calculated by the taxpayer. Income statement needs to be prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for non-deductible costs and non-taxable revenues.
