Financial and tax year in Lithuania 

The financial and tax year in Lithuania coincide with the calendar year. However, a different tax year may be established taking into account the peculiarities of the taxpayer’s activity. A taxpayer, upon the consent of the Tax Inspectorate, may have a different 12-month tax year, if this is necessary due to the seasonal nature of activity or if the group, to which the taxpayer belongs, applies a tax year different from the calendar year.

Small enterprises 

An enterprise with gross income below EUR 300,000 during a tax year and with the average number of employees not exceeding 10 has the right to apply a 5% CIT (the standard rate is 15%). A non-profit company with income from business activities not exceeding EUR 300,000 per tax year has the right to apply zero CIT rate to the amount of EUR 7,250 and a 15% CIT rate to the remaining amount of taxable profit.
