Vanuatu - Taxation
Vanuatu has no income, corporation, or sales tax. Government revenues are derived from indirect taxes, which include stamp taxes, an excise tax on locally produced alcoholic beverages, a 10% hotel tax, and a rent tax. In 2000 the OECD listed Vanuatu as one of 38 uncooperative tax haven. In 2002, it was one of seven that remained on the list. In May 2003, however, Vanuatu was removed from the blacklist, having promised an OECD representative to make the required reforms.
