We live in times where economic uncertainty is the order of the day. The Andorran tax system is characterized by being very non-aggressive.
Andorra’s tax system is friendly to both individuals and legal entities (companies). But, surprisingly, there are many people who continue to erroneously associate the Principality of Andorra as a tax haven, but it is not. No way. Andorra stopped being a tax haven several years ago.
Even so, millions of people continue to consider Andorra as a tax haven because the country where they currently live is a true tax hell.
Why do many people finally decide to live in Andorra?
Because there are tax hells. Yes, they exist and they are increasing. Who lives in Spain or France will know what we are talking about. Compared to other countries, Andorra’s tax system is quite simple.
