Tax In Grenada
One of the most consistently challenging aspects of contracting in Grenada is complying with the country’s tax system. As well as paying tax in Grenada, you might also still be eligible to pay some tax in your home country, and understanding the legislation behind this can be a challenge.
If you’re working in Grenada under a permanent contract, many employers will handle your tax under the PAYE (pay-as-you-earn) system. This means that they calculate and process your taxes in Grenada for you and then send you a net wage. Your income tax, public health insurance, social security and other deductions will all be covered by this payment. This is the easiest way to handle your income tax in Grenada, but contractors may not be offered this service because of their short stay with each employer.
Anybody who can’t pay their tax in Grenada through PAYE is left with the prospect of doing everything themselves.
