Need for the Document[edit]

The Moroccan tax code does not make any distinction between Moroccan and foreign employees in relation to the taxation of employment income. General tax provisions would apply for the taxation of employment income earned by foreign employees in Morocco. An individual is considered a Moroccan resident for tax purposes if

  • he/she maintains his/her home in Morocco
  • he/she has his/her center of economic interests in Morocco
  • he/she is present in Morocco for at least 183 days during any period of 365 days

In Morocco the Employment income tax is levied on salaries, wages, compensation awards, overtime pay and all cash and in-kind fringe benefits given to an Employee.

The determination of net taxable income depends on the residency status of the person, and is generally achieved by taking gross taxable income less certain allowable deductions (including mandatory social security contributions) Employment income Tax is usually taxed at progressive rates, the maximum rate being 38%. The employee's share of social security contributions is about 6.29% of his gross salary.

Tax is imposed on all salaries, remunerations and bonuses paid to managing directors, board members and managers of corporations for the performance of administrative duties.
