Calculators

 

 

Our legislation and policies are designed with your needs in mind

 

Investors are invited to use our online calculators to better understand what incentives are available and to obtain estimation of the total project cost.

 

Competitive tax incentives are available at development and operations stages in key investment sectors. Based on the size and nature of the investment a set of exemptions and benefits may be awarded to qualifying projects. The Incentives Calculator may be used to calculate the cost of your overall savings for your proposed project. For individuals who are building a villa or a hotel, the Real Estate Calculator may be used to determine the budget required for your project.
