  • Individual Tax Advisory


Employed individual taxpayers are contributing almost 10% of the income tax revenues to the government as per the statistics for the past year. This reflects that individuals are contributing a significant part of their employment income as income taxes.

The income tax laws provide that all employed individuals must pay income tax in Sri Lanka irrespective of whether such employee is a citizen of Sri Lanka or from outside Sri Lanka. The law requires the taxpayer to be familiar with a myriad of exemptions and deductions which are applicable to individuals on their employment income.
