When does the company pay taxes on dividends?

Last updated: March 29, 2018

Your company will pay tax on dividends at the time you actually pay out the dividends. You can declare an amount of dividends that you intend to pay in your annual report, but as the amount may differ you don't pay taxes until you make the actual payment.

The taxes should be paid to the tax authorities on the 10th day of the month after the dividend payout. As an example, if you declare that you'll pay €5 000 in your annual report in March, but then pay out only €1 000 in April, then only €1 000 is reported to Estonian Tax authorities, and the corporate income tax of 20/80 (€250 in this case) has to be paid in May (the following month).
