Luxembourg: Incentive scheme for hiring highly skilled employees – an update of the regime

0
On 14 October 2020, Luxembourg announced new provisions with respect to incentive for highly skilled and qualified workers ("Impatriate Regime") as part of the 2021 budget bill ("Law").1The Impatriate Regime was introduced back in 20112 and was further amended by several circulars, including the most recent Circular LIR No. 95/2 dated 27 January 2014 ("Circular") which have been repealed in the meantime. The government has now decided to codify the Impatriate Regime under Article 115(13) b. of the Luxembourg income tax law (LITL) and to introduce some limited changes.The aim of Article 115(13) b. of the LITL remains close to the original objective of the Circular, which was to further enhance the competitiveness of Luxembourg by enabling Luxembourg employers to hire new talent from abroad. The changes introduced by the Law should further simplify the procedure, strengthening the clear intention of Luxembourg to remain attractive from an economic perspective.Below we describe the regime that will be applicable as from 1 January 2021 while highlighting the main changes compared to the former rules.
