Key Findings

Bulgaria Overview

•The Bulgarian healthcare system is underfinanced. Hospitals face constant financial challenges, as the equipment used is obsolete, wages in the healthcare sector are very low, and corruption is widespread.
•Most of the medical products are imported from the United Kingdom and Germany and sold through local distributors. Demand for invasive and non-invasive surgery equipment, oncology, ultrasound equipment, in vitro diagnostic equipment and urology equipment is on the rise.
•Bulgaria joined the European Union (EU) in 2007 and due to this it introduced a flatxx% corporate tax rate which is one of the lowest tax within the Union.
•Added advantage resulting from this is that all import and export from and to the EU is duty free. A company manufacturing goods within Bulgaria and exporting them to another European country is completely duty free.
•Registration of a start-up company in Bulgaria is cheaper and faster than in other countries.
