Act 20, which provides incentives for export service companies of bona-fide residents of Puerto Rico provides certain incentives in the form of a grant.  The grant that is issued is actually a form of contract between the Puerto Rico resident and the government of Puerto Rico.  As such, the export services rendered and the services described under the under the contract must be materially be the same.  For the activities described in the contract, a 4% income tax rate is applicable.  However, for the services outside of those described in the contract, the regular Puerto Rico corporate income tax rate applies.
