11 Countries with The Lowest Taxes in Europe

Dreamed of living in Europe?  High taxes put off some, but it’s possible to live there with lower taxes through strategic residency and investments.


Andorra, pressured by the EU, introduced income tax in 2015, yet remains a low-tax haven nestled between high-tax Spain and France, making it ideal for investors and those with capital gains due to its minimal tax burden.

1. Andorra

Hungary boasts a 9% corporate tax and a 15% standard rate for personal income tax. To qualify as a tax resident, spend 183 days in Hungary or have a permanent home there, but note that the country is less immigration-friendly compared to others in the EU.

Bulgaria flaunts a 10% flat rate for both personal and corporate taxes, offering simplicity and low rates. To become a fiscal resident, live in Bulgaria for 183 days or make it your "center of life," but consider other Balkan countries like Serbia or Romania for personal preference.
