On the decision of the local authorities, the JEI are exempt from property tax and TEC for seven years.
Capital gains on the sale of JEI shares are exempt.
In the event of a sale, capital gains on JEI shares are exempt from tax if the shareholder retained them for at least three years and did not, alone or with family members own more than 25% of the corporate holdings of the company.
