The tax brackets in Chile are based on a tax value unit called the "Unidad Tributaria" which comes in a monthly form of "Unidad Tributaria Mensual" (UTM) and an annual form of "Unidad Tributaria Anual" (UTA). This unit is adjusted every month. At the time of our most recent update, for 2022, the UTA is set to 705,264 Chilean pesos.
Although there are no standard deductions available in Chile, one commonly available deduction for residents is one for social security contributions. You may also be eligible for other deductions like limited ones for mortgage interest payments, employment expenses, and voluntary pension contributions.
Non-resident taxpayers are taxed at a flat rate of either 15% if they work in technical/pro services or at 35% for all other work. Additionally, they are generally not eligible for any deductions.
Social Security in Chile
The social security system in Chile consists of the pension, health insurance, and unemployment insurance.
Contributions are shared between both employers and employees. The income applicable for calculating contributions has a maximum cap which is based on the "Unidades de Fomento" (UF). This unit is updated on a daily basis by the government in accordance with inflation.
As stated above, all social security contributions are deductible for resident taxpayers.
Foreign nationals that participate in a foreign social security system that covers pension, disability, illness, and death may be exempt from mandatory contributions to the Chilean social security system.
Resident status and income tax in Chile
Individuals who are residents for tax purposes are subject to income tax on worldwide income. Foreign non-residents are only subject to income tax on Chilean-sourced income. However, after three years in Chile, non-residents are also subject to tax on worldwide income.
The resident status is defined as anyone having domicile in Chile which essentially means being physically in Chile with the intent to remain. Otherwise, if there is a lack of intent to remain, those that are present in the country for either six consecutive months within a calendar year or those that are present for an aggregate of over six months within two calendar years are also considered to be residents for tax purposes.
The non-resident status would then be applied to anyone not meeting tax residency criteria.
