The system being replaced includes a flat rate of 15%, which is a final withholding tax for non-resident individuals. Under the new system the rates are based on monthly income as follows for resident individuals:

  • up to SCR 8,555.50 – 0%
  • over SCR 8,555.50 up to 10,000 – 15%
  • over SCR 10,000 up to 85,333 – 20%
  • over SCR 85,333 – 30%

For non-resident individuals, the rates are:

  • up to SCR 10,000 – 15%
  • over SCR 10,000 up to 85,333 – 20%
  • over SCR 85,333 – 30%

New payroll forms have been designed for the new tax system, which employers must lodge within 21 days after each month along with their monthly Business Activity Statement. Employee status reports must also be lodged on 21 July and 21 January of each year.
