Georgia continues to attract successful companies thanks to its pro-business environment, which includes a talented workforce, world-class infrastructure, competitive tax structure, unparalleled access to the world market, a variety of energy options, and quality of life that can’t be beat. In fact, the state has ranked number one in Site Selection Magazine’s annual survey of business climates for eight years in a row.

One of the biggest draws to Georgia is its single-factor corporate tax apportionment. The state’s 6% corporate income tax rate helps keep the state competitive and only applies to the portion of income that is earned in Georgia.
