As the U.S. Treasury Department continues to tighten its noose around offshore accounts, a new tax haven has sprung up under its nose in the Caribbean. Welcome to Puerto Rico–island of tropical breezes, and (for new arrivals only) a 0% tax rate on certain dividends, interest and capital gains..

Because residents of the island are considered U.S. citizens but subject to different tax laws, Americans avoid paying an exit tax of 23.8% on unrealized capital gains when relocating to Puerto Rico. All this makes Act 20 and 22 tax incentives appealing to owning real estate in Puerto Rico. The Act 20 and 22 incentives expire on December 31, 2035 and include 100% exemption on dividends, interest on capital gains for these new bona fide residents of Puerto Rico. To that end, individuals must be present physically on the Island 183 days in the year and cannot have been residents in PR 15 years before the date in which Act became effective. BDO, international firm of tax advisors, has established presence around the World to better inform on rules and requirements.


ACT 20

Enacted on January 17, 2012, Act 20, known as the “Export Services Act” is intended to promote the exportation of services by providing great resources and opportunities for U.S. companies to bring their business to Puerto Rico and make it a service center for the World. It also promotes academic and private sectors development and research by granting exemptions and assistance with energy costs to companies willing to invest on growth of these key areas. To become exempt, the business needs to apply for a tax concession via a tax exemption decree considered a contract with the Office of Industrial Tax Exemption of the Government of PR. The decree will be secured during the term, 20 years with possible 10 year extension, regardless of changes in the law itself. To qualify, the business cannot have any previous connections, dealings or nexus with Puerto Rico.
