The reform to ISR in Article 22 added subsection (c), which entails the following: "Natural and legal persons domiciled in Honduras pay one percent (1%) of gross revenues for the tax period, when the application of the rates quoted in paragraphs a and b proves to be less than one percent (1%) of the gross income declared. This same one percent (1%) of gross revenues must be paid by people and companies who report losses at the end of the fiscal year. "
