1 Worldwide Personal Tax Guide Income tax, social security and immigration 2015 16. Preface Governments worldwide continue to reform their tax codes at a historically rapid rate. Taxpayers need a current guide, such as the Worldwide Personal Tax Guide, in such a shifting tax land- scape, especially if they are contemplating new markets. The content is straightforward. Chapter by chapter, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, we summarize personal tax systems and immigration rules in 162 jurisdictions. The content is current on 1 July 2015 , with exceptions noted. Each chapter begins with EY's in-country executive and immi- gration contact information, and some jurisdictions add contacts from our Private Client Services practice.

2 Then we lay out the essential facts about the jurisdiction's personal taxes. We start with the personal Income tax, explaining who is liable for tax and, at some length, what types of Income are considered taxable and which rates, deductions and credits apply. A section on other taxes varies by jurisdiction but often includes estate, inheritance, gift and real estate taxes. A social security section covers pay- ments for publicly provided health, pensions and other social benefits, followed by sections on tax filing and payment proce- dures as well as double tax relief and tax treaties. The immigra- tion sections provide information on temporary visas, work visas and permits, residence visas and permits, and family and per- sonal considerations.

3 At the back of the guide, you will find a list of the names and codes for all national currencies and a list of contacts for other jurisdictions. For many years, the Worldwide Personal Tax Guide was joined by two companion guides on broad-based taxes: the Worldwide Corporate Tax Guide and the Worldwide VAT, GST and Sales Tax Guide. In recent years, those three have been joined by addi- tional tax guides on more-specific topics, including the Worldwide Estate and Inheritance Tax Guide, the Worldwide Transfer Pricing Reference Guide, the Global Oil and Gas Tax Guide, the Worldwide R&D Incentives Reference Guide and the Worldwide Cloud Computing Tax Guide. Each of the guides represents thousands of hours of tax research.
