If I want to move my corporation to another country, it says an anoumt of tax I have to pay.

But when I placed my corporation, the tax % is higher than it says when I moved my corporation!

Even if I move now another corporation, it says the same low amounth of tax, while the reality is much higher than it says...

How to solve?

It might be the country where you are moving to is raising its taxes (only goes up 5 or 10% a month) and the game hasnt caught up yet with the countrys new tax rate when reporting what you will pay before moving. Does that make sense?

Give it a month and I reckon you'll see the new rate. Its always a good idea to check a country out before moving/building there anyway, and if you list the corps in the country, at the top you can see the real current tax rate.

I've seen this happen in the reverse, where the tax was actually lower than it was noted as. It was due to an in-process lowering of the rate. Crafty you're probably right on.

Joriss, a few tips I use when investing:

1: Check out the tax lists at the top of each world thread, here on the forums. Gives a list of some countries and their tax rates. Helps a little when trying to find a new country to invest in.

2: I've also found that older wealthier countries with healthly private sectors tend to have more stable rates (they've already figured out a rate that works for them, and have a vested interest in keeping it unchanged. Not to mention, they're usually lower.)

3: You can always ask the president to reconsider a rate hike, in favor of future investment. Let him/her know, low taxes are good for business.
