Isle of Man - Benefits

There are many benefits to working within the Isle of Man.

Lower tax

Tax and National Insurance Isle of Man residents benefit from lower tax rates than a lot of countries in the EU and a simpler, more efficient system of calculation. The Isle of Man operates a simple taxation regime with a lower rate of tax on individuals of 10% and an upper rate of 20% on personal income.

This means that a single person earning £20,000 in the tax year starting 6 April 2017 would pay £850 in tax (versus the UK where an individual earning £20,000 would pay £1,700 in tax).

The personal allowance (tax free earnings) for a single person is £12,500 and for a married couple £25,000 (for the tax year starting 6 April 2017). The Isle of Man is offering a National Insurance Holiday Scheme which allows newly employed, relocated or returning residents to apply for a refund on their National Insurance contributions for their first year of living or returning to the Isle of Man, with refunds capped at £4,000.
