Tax Memorandum 1 to 14 January 2014

Amendments to the Law on Income Tax

Decree No. 19-2013 contains amendments to the Law on Income Tax (ISR by its initials in Spanish) contained in Decree No. 10-2012 and which was published in Diario de Centro América on December 20, 2013.

Although Decree No. 19-2013 states that these are effective as of December 21, 2013, it also states that "The application will be made in accordance with Article 7 of the Tax Code ..." This provision of the Tax Code provides that "When reform of the tax law established a different amount or rate, for one or more tax, it shall apply from the first business day of the following period in order to avoid duplication of statements by the taxpayer. " In this case the effective date of the reforms will be controversial, as long as it remains the interpretation of the rules applicable to the effective date at the time. In this regard, our view is that they come into force on January 1, 2014. However, each taxpayer must analyze their application, considering that these reforms are favorable to taxpayers who are taxed ISR using the Regime on Profits from Lucrative Activities .
