Discover Bolivia

Bolivia is a sovereign state situated in the heart of South America. This landlocked country spans over 1,098,581 km², making it the fifth largest in South America and the largest landlocked country in the Southern Hemisphere. Bolivia's diverse geography ranges from the Andes Mountains in the west to the Amazon basin in the east. It's divided into nine departments, each with unique cultural and geographic characteristics. Bolivia shares its borders with several countries: Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Chile, and Paraguay.

The country's population is a rich tapestry of multiethnic groups, including Amerindians, Mestizos, Europeans, Asians, and Africans. This cultural diversity is reflected in its official languages, Spanish and 36 indigenous languages, with Guarani, Aymara, and Quechua being the most commonly spoken. Bolivia's history is deeply rooted in its pre-colonial civilizations, most notably the Tiwanaku Empire, and its subsequent colonization by Spain. The influence of these historical periods is evident in the country's rich cultural heritage and traditions.

Regarding the economy, Bolivia has experienced significant transformations over the years. It is classified as a lower-middle-income country by the World Bank. Historically, Bolivia's economy was heavily dependent on a single-commodity focus, shifting from silver to tin to coca. However, in recent decades, there has been a diversification with mining, especially natural gas and zinc extraction, playing a dominant role in its export economy. Agriculture, forestry, fishing, and manufacturing are also important sectors, contributing to the country's economic activities. The manufacturing sector includes textiles, clothing, refined metals, and refined petroleum products. Bolivia is notably rich in minerals like tin, silver, lithium, and copper and is known for its production of coca leaves and refined cocaine.

Despite being one of the poorest countries in South America, Bolivia has made significant strides in reducing poverty and improving its GDP growth, which is among the fastest in South America. However, the country still faces challenges like high public debt and declining natural gas production, which have limited its growth prospects.

Corporate Income Tax

Corporate entities in Bolivia, including branches of foreign companies, are subject to corporate income tax.

Value-Added Tax (VAT)

VAT is a significant part of Bolivia's tax system, applied to the sale of goods and provision of services within the country. The rate is uniform across different sectors, and this tax is included in the final price of goods and services, leading to an effective rate that slightly exceeds the nominal rate.
