System of taxes and fees in Austria

The state collects taxes in Austria, and according to the World Bank, tax revenue accounted for 42.7 percent of GDP in 2016.

Income tax, corporate tax, social security contributions, value-added tax, and tax on goods and services are the government’s most major revenue sources.

Corporate income tax

The corporate income tax rate in Austria is a tax levied on businesses. Its value is determined by the net income firms earn while conducting business, usually over a single fiscal year.

Austria has risen to the top of the list of the world’s most business-friendly countries since the corporate tax rate was slashed to 25%.

Personal income tax

Austrian income tax applies to all Austrian residents’ worldwide income, including income from trade or commerce, profession, employment, investments, and real estate. Non-residents are only taxed in Austria on specific types of income. Non-residents are liable to standard income tax rates on income earned in Austria (including a fictitious income increase of EUR 9,000).

Social security tax

Health insurance, pension insurance, unemployment insurance, and accident insurance are all required by law in Austria. Contributions are calculated as a percentage of total monthly earnings (up to certain maximum amounts) and are split 50/50 between the employee and the employer. 


A customer in Austria must pay the net sales plus 20% VAT, which is included separately on the supplier’s invoice. In effect, the client bears the supplier’s tax burden. Following that, the sum is deducted from the customer’s value-added tax liability.
