ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL
Economic growth in the state of Florida is still strong and expanding. The USA are recognized as being one of the richest countries in technological and commercial innovations.
The United States can boast of having an excellent image in the economic world. One of the advantages of Florida is that it is not considered a pseudo “tax haven” which gives credibility and clout to companies that decide to locate there.
Due to its geographic location, Florida is considered the gateway to the West Indies and all of Central and South America.
Orlando is a city in constant development: a new terminal opened in 2019 (South terminal), high speed train between Orlando and Miami in 2018 (Brightline express), more than 500,000 students live in Orlando, a new StarWars park at DisneyWorld in 2019, etc.

The 3 types of taxes in Florida
The American system is based on triple taxation. In addition, with the tax reform of the Trump administration, general taxes are reduced. There are 3 types of taxes in Florida:
- Federal tax: According to the Tax Foundation, the average sales tax rate in Florida is 7.05%, 23rd-highest in the country.
- State Tax (Florida): The main advantage of registering a business in Florida is that the State of Florida does not levy personal income tax. This rule is provided for in the constitution of the state of Florida. As for companies, they are subject to a levy of around 5.5% on their net profit.
- Local tax: this tax refers to the property tax which is approximately 2% of the purchase price of the property. It concerns all real estate of individuals and companies and this tax is tax deductible. Think of it as a tax that cuts your taxes!
