Are you a foreign investor? This is opportunity for you!

British Financial Times ranks Serbia as number one in attracting direct foreign investments.

In the first month of this year, we have over 40% more foreign investments than in the same period last year.

The Law on Personal Income Tax will define many incentives for employment.

If you’ve recently graduated from a faculty or a school and you are looking for a job or starting a business, there are no taxes or contributions to your salary, which is the state’s way of inciting you to start working.


For companies, if an employee is coming from abroad, the contributions are 30% instead of 100%.

The budget was made so that a part goes to raising salaries and pensions, whereas another part is to be put into capital investments, amounting to RSD 260 billion.

This will be the great opportunity to think about WTS programs such as:

  1. Residence permit by company formation
