    Check this out - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_rates_of_Europe
    Come to Lithuania, Vilnius. Here you can find quite nice living quality/price rate :)

    I notice that countrys with the highest tax rates have the best living standards. Just look at germany.

    Estonia is great place what comes to the taxing of companies. You could set up a small company there in order to get maximum benefits for taxing purposes

    Why don't you go to Portugal? is way cheaper, I know that coz I have been there a while!!
    Germany sucks! I tried to settle, but didn't even get an Apartment (Politics) even the Germans itself having hard time for that - I know that from former colleagues.
    other then that: Google for " the best places to live" you may find a nice 15minutes survey which is really useful. haven't don that in years, should do it again after all.....

    Take it from a Portuguese, don't come to Portugal, we seem to don't have a lot in regards of Tax but they are all hidden fees. You pay for everything and then some.

    I advise Denmark, they may have a higher tax rate but they were considered one of the best places in the world to live on (I've got a relative there and he's loving it, i'm out of here as soon as i can..)

    Cheers

    Hello my friend :) you are welcome in Bosnia, i am here, (in Banja Luka town, 7 womans on 1 man here, you will love it :) ). For our standards taxes are high. But if you are doing on internet, you don't need to pay anything, people in country administration for taxes don't know how to make payment for any money you earn from internet. I am not paying anything.

    You can rent new good looking apartment for 200euro/m. Food and alcohol are cheap here :) 0,8 euro 0,5l bear in pubs, 1,5euro in clubs. So you can live like a boss with 1000eur / m here.

    You are welcome :)

    Europe... No Borders? No Worries!

    What happened to Bosnia's 10% corporate tax? Quite a lot of methods to make online money require you to have a legit company... That still applies to you!

    I know, but you don't have to publish small earnings (something like 500 - 1k euro /m or more), this is corrupted country...but people no idea how much money are on the internet here. People don't do it. Its an very open and non competive country for online business. You can do here a lot of thins if you are online to make more money then you can in other country.

    Perfect is do from here for US market. A lot o people do it, and they don't pay that 10% corporate tax, for years already, and country don't touch em. I know, i am live here.

    I think that Bulgaria is a good place - in the European Union is tax profit is 10% and VAT is 20%. I live in Bulgaria and I say this from experience. I know nothing for Czech Republic

    I live in germany and it's shit :D
    Taxes are really high (but if you earn 8004€ i think it's free).
    Also many things got expensive. Many people here get poor and the rich ones get richer.
    I see in my city so many people opened a local store, and after 1-2 months they closed it, becuase nobody has money to buy something :).

    In germany you have many company forms. I have a small company where i don't have to pay VAT on things i sell.
    But next year i will change to sole trader, where i have to pay VAT, but with that entity more peopel will see you serious
    and you may get more sales.

    I hope if i earned much money i can leave germany and settle to dubai, i have heard that there are no taxes for foreigners :D

    I heard Monaco has a good tax rate and great quality of life but affording to live there is a different story.
