Tax Cap Election

For new and existing residents of £200,000/annum

Alongside tax benefits including 0% capital gains, 0% corporate income tax and 0% inheritance / wealth tax, the Isle of Man offers a Tax Cap for new and existing resident individuals of £200,000 per annum, specifically introduced for those who have annual income such that their tax liability would otherwise exceed the Tax Cap.

Individuals who are resident in the Isle of Man for income tax purposes are able to benefit from the Tax Cap, and the maximum liability for a jointly assessed couple is £400,000. A valid Tax Cap will remain in force for five consecutive tax years.

The Tax Cap amount is due and payable on 6 January in each tax year for which an election applies. Alternatively, for those who are looking for flexibility without a 5 year cap election, the standard and higher personal tax rates are some of the lowest in Europe.

The standard rate of tax in the Isle of Man is 10% and higher is 20%, with the first £14,250 per annum completely tax-free.

  • Low personal tax rates for individuals

  • No capital taxes

  • Tax cap of £200,000 per annum

  • Zero rate corporate tax
