In Kuwait, corporate income tax is not levied against companies that are wholly owned by Kuwaiti or Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) citizens or corporations. However, corporate income tax is levied against foreign companies engaged in commercial activities in the country, either through direct ownership or as shareholders or partners of Kuwaiti and GCC companies. The tax is levied according to the extent of foreign ownership. This report generates a taxable income statement in accordance with these requirements.
