If you have been following the new 2023 financial law, it was
So there are two things you need to know:
- The new 30% tax rate is applied when an auto-entrepreneur makes more than 80,000 MAD with one Moroccan client.
- When that happens, for anything beyond the 80,000 MAD threshold, the client needs to pay 30% tax rate.
So, from an auto-entrepreneur perspective, nothing is changing. The new 30% rate is paid by the client and not the auto-entrepreneur.
The reason for this change is that Moroccan companies were using the auto-entrepreneur status to avoid hiring people (and paying taxes on their salary). So as a result, the government made this change to get some money from these companies. For international clients, this is not applicable given they can’t employ people in the first place.
So that’s it. I hope it makes more sense now.
