Diia City implies a step change in current taxation, enforcement and judicial systems.

The reform provides for replacing corporate tax by dividends taxation at a 10% rate.

The tax model for employees implies a 5% personal income tax rate.

Diia City management and governance is assumed by Diia City residents themselves.
