Young Entrepreneurs, formerly Act 135

Entrepreneurs are key players in the economy of any country and the new Code is addressing this sector. For purposes of the Code, a young entrepreneur is a resident of Puerto Rico between the ages of 16 and 35 who is interested in creating and operating a new company in the long term for an indefinite time. The exemption Decree will have a 3-year term.

Among the tax benefits that are available for young entrepreneurs are 0% exemption on income tax on the first $500,000 net income, no federal income tax on income sources in Puerto Rico, 100% tax exception on property tax, and 100% exemption on Municipal License taxes.

Refer to our White Paper on Young Entrepreneurs, Chapter 10 of Subtitle B of the new Code (formerly Act 135) for a summarized briefing of the contents of this incentive.
