Taxation of international executives
Kuwait does not impose personal taxes on income earned by individuals including non-Kuwaiti employees. However, the existence of a representative of a foreign entity in relation to a business or contract in Kuwait may trigger the taxable presence of the company in Kuwait for corporate income tax purposes.
The official currency of Kuwait is the Kuwait Dinars (KWD).
Herein, the host country/territory refers to the country/territory where the expatriate is going on assignment. The home country/territory refers to the country/territory where the expatriate lives when they are not on assignment.
