Currently Moldova IT-Park is the first and only IT-park in our country, the residents of which enjoy a special tax regime. The flat tax, which is 7% of sales income, includes most of the taxes and duties due to the government. In addition, the residents of the IT-park can attract highly qualified specialists from abroad. Their immigration documentation is simplified, which allows them to obtain a work permit for a period of 2 years for IT professionals or 4 years for IT managers. // 17.09.2020 - InfoMarket.
