Bulgaria: Exemption of listed corporate bonds


With effective date

1 January 2014

amendments to the Corporate Income Tax Act (CITA) have been published in the official gazette.

The most important change provides for the exemption of tax on income from listed corporate bonds paid to both resident and non-resident beneficial owners.

Note: Unlisted corporate bonds remain subject to tax.

Impact on customers

The income from the listed corporate bonds will be distributed gross by the issuer and the former tax will no longer apply. No action is required from Clearstream Banking1 customers.

The procedure to apply will be communicated, before each impacted event, through our usual SWIFT notification.
