Income Tax in Rwanda in 2019

Taxes, including personal income tax, expenses and limitations are reviewed by the Government in Rwanda periodically and typically updated each year. Not that not all tax rates and thresholds in Rwanda change annually, alterations to tax policy to support strategic economic growth in Rwanda mean that the certain areas may be focused on to provide specific tax relief in Rwanda or support growth in certain areas (overseas invstment in Rwanda for example may mean reduced non-resident income tax rates in Rwanda for a period).

When tax policy in Rwanda changes, the resultant tax tables also change. Tax tables in Rwanda are simply a list of the relevent tax rates, fixed amounts and / or threholds used in the computation of tax in Rwanda, the Rwanda tax tables also include specific notes and guidance on the validity of scenarios (for example, qualifying criterea for specific tax relief / allowances) and notes of the calculation of phaseout of specific tax elements within each taxation group (dividends and corporation tax thresholds in Rwanda for example).

Rwanda Tax Tables may also be referred to as Rwanda Tax Slabs, Rwanda personal allowances and tax thresholds or Rwanda business tax rates. They all refer to the tax tables, whether in whole or as specific sections/categories of the tax tables therein. In the section, we publish all 2019 tax rates and thresholds used within the 2019 Rwanda Salary Calculator. This means that if you are aware of a 2019 tax exemption or 2019 tax allowance in Rwanda that you are entitled too BUT it isn't listed here, that we don't allow for it in this version of the Rwanda Salary Calculator. This is simply because we updated our tax calculators based on user feedback, we tailor the Rwanda Salary Calculator to suit our users needs. Our aim is to keep tax calculations in Rwanda simple, we achieve this my making the Rwanda tax calculators relevent to our community's needs, this includes you. So, if you would like a new 2019 tax rates, allowance or threshold adding (or perhaps updating), or if you notice an error in our 2019 tax calculations, simply contact us and we will adjust the tool.
