Contracting in Latvia has some complexity. The taxation system in Latvia is multi layered and is not contractor friendly. Latvia is recognised for being a country with some of the best living standards in Eastern Europe. They has entered into Double Taxation Treaties with some countries and do not encourage contracting. For foreign national contract workers, contracting in Latvia, it would be wise to consult with CXC Global on the best way to structure, and how best to balance taxation.
