Taxation

French Polynesia is a French overseas collectivity, which means that its tax system is largely based on the French tax system. Both corporations and individuals are subject to taxes in French Polynesia.


Corporate taxation in French Polynesia is currently at a standard rate of 28%. However, there are some deductions and allowances available, such as those for research and development, investment in machinery and equipment, and charitable donations.


Individuals in French Polynesia are subject to a progressive tax system that includes both national and local taxes. The tax rates for national income tax range from 0% to 45% depending on the income level. Local taxes, which vary by municipality, are typically in the range of 7.5%-15%.


The tax year in French Polynesia runs from 1 January to 31 December, and tax returns must be filed by the end of May of the following year. Taxpayers can file their returns electronically or on paper. Tax payments are typically due in three instalments, with the first instalment due in February, the second in May, and the final instalment in September.


Taxpayers in French Polynesia can choose to pay their taxes either monthly or in a lump sum. Monthly payments are based on the previous year's tax assessment and are paid on the 15th day of each month. Lump sum payments are due in September and can be paid either online or at a bank.


In addition to income taxes, there are also taxes on capital gains, dividends, and other types of income. Employers are also required to withhold taxes from their employees' paychecks and remit those taxes to the government on a monthly basis.


French Polynesia also has a value-added tax (VAT) system, which is similar to the sales tax system in other countries. The VAT rate in French Polynesia is currently set at 5%.


It is important to note that tax laws and regulations in French Polynesia are subject to change. Taxpayers should consult with a tax professional or the French Polynesian tax authority for the most up-to-date information on tax rules and procedures.
