Hello fellow capsuleers!

I've been thinking about joining a null sec corp and I'm trying to figure out which one should I apply to. I'm interested in one particular corp, but I see their corp tax rate is 15% atm. Is it too much, or that's a fair tax for a null corp.

Cheers!

Corporate tax rates really only benfit the corp if you do activities generally associated with High Sec/Low Sec space such as mission running, Incursions etc.

Null sec activties tend to center around enterprises than aren't taxed, so doesn't really matter if the corp tax rate is 50%, they aren't getting anything from you.

In fact, because of this reason, some null sec corps just charge the members a flat fee, say 50-100M a month to help support corp activities such as home defense and what not.

The normal rate is 10% with some bumping to 100% during CTAs (Call to Arms) to discourage people from not participating in the CTA.

This is totally wrong. Most people in nulsec get their ISK from ratting, which is taxed.

depends, there are some corps that require like 100M/month, in exchange you get other benefits, like unlimited t2 ammo, always 100% reimbursements, unlimited fuel and other benefits.

If you got decent ratting space you earn that money in no time.

 

and yes, some CEO's are greedy and want you to pay for their plexes.

Exactly, I was expecting to get my ISK ratting and hence my concern. Anyway, I guess 15% it's not too bad if the corp is worth it, and from what I've read I think it can be the case.

Yeah, 15% isn't terrible. The issue is what you get for that ISK.

sov is expensive, offices get expensive, contributing to alliance srp gets expensive.

 

Some corps carebear more than others so they need less tax to cover expenses.

If you're getting a ship replacement program, a corp logistics program to move your ships, jump bridges, upgraded systems & so forth, 15% is reasonable.

If the corp doesn't do anything for you but make promises about what they "will" do for the members "as soon as we have the...." then it's exploitative and you've joined a scam corp.
