Taxation of international executives
Payroll Tax is not levied with respect to remuneration paid to individuals who are ordinarily employed outside Bermuda, provided that the period of employment in Bermuda (whether for one or more employers) does not exceed 4 consecutive weeks.
The tax base consists of actual remuneration paid, given, or assessed by any employer or self-employed person to every employee or deemed employee. Remuneration includes any benefits derived by the employee/deemed employee or self-employed person as a result of their employment, whether paid in cash or in kind. The remuneration of a self-employed person or a deemed employee is the greater of their actual or notional remuneration
