Non-resident individuals in Fiji for tax purposes are subject to taxation on income arising from Fiji sources only. Where individuals reside outside Fiji but are in receipt of Fiji-sourced income, this income is subject to either Fiji income tax or withholding tax depending on the type of income.
The official currency of the Fiji Islands is the Fiji Dollar (FJD).
