From the memo of Tezó y Asociados:

Article 120 of the Tax Code establishes that "Taxpayers must update or ratify their registration data annually, by the means that the Tax Administration makes available to them. The information presented by the taxpayer must also contain the updating of its main economic activity or activities, which will be those that in the corresponding tax period have reported more than 50% of income to the taxpayer.”

The rule states that registration data must be updated and ratified annually but does not indicate when; the criteria followed by SAT (Tax Administration System) is that the year expires in the month of incorporation. However, if necessary, in December of each year, the tax registration must also be updated. In fact, there are several issues that the Management of each Company must analyze and define the form and basis of taxation of its different tax obligations; if it decides to modify, it must give notice to the SAT in December of the year prior to which the change is desired, for example: The form of taxation of income tax for income from profitable activities (tax on profits or on income). The equation used to calculate the income tax payable quarterly (using partial accounting closings or estimated taxable income). The ISO accreditation form (a. Accredit the ISO paid the previous year with the income tax to be paid this year, or b. Accredit the quarterly income tax with the ISO). All these changes must be made in the taxpayer's RTU and do not require SAT authorization.
