In the case of income from a salary, the employer is obligated to deduct the amount of tax payable on a monthly basis.

A self-employed person must prepay income tax that will be offset on filing an annual return.

The advance payment is determined on the basis of the return made for the previous year.

In the event of a new business, the advance will be calculated on the basis of estimates made by the owner of the business.

Certain payments are deductible from taxable income as detailed below.
