Income taxes abroad

What's your situation?

I'm an employee

Which income will be taxed in Greece?

  • Resident in Greece? You must pay tax on your worldwide income there.

    (criterion: your life is centred there, your family lives there and your children are educated there)

  • Not resident in Greece? You only pay tax on income earned there.

  • Income from other EU countries? Check you never pay tax twice on the same income.

How much will you pay?

What's left of your gross income in Greece after deduction of taxes and social security contributions?

When and how do you pay?

Your employer will deduct income tax and social contributions from your salary.

Tax returns — you only have to file one if you have sources of income other than your salary.

How to appeal/complain

If you disagree with your tax assessment, you can appeal to the state courts.

For details of exactly where and how, see your tax assessment letter.
