Requirements to Audit Financial Statements

In Costa Rica companies classified as Large National Taxpayers or Regional Companies must provide audited financial statements.

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

In an article in, Francisco Villalobos, director general of taxation, analyzes the resolution establishing the "obligation to submit audited financial statements by large taxpayers and territorial big business."

The text stresses the observation of Director Villalobos, in the sense that companies that currently do not have audited statements for previous years (2008, 2009 and 2010), may declare this to the Tax Administration, "and present unaudited financial statements. Equally they may also submit the details electronically with a note attesting to the veracity and authenticity of these, signed by the corresponding person in the company. "

Villalobos expressly states that "for the fiscal year 2011, in which there are six months left for preparation and delivery, the submission of audited financial statements for Taxation, is mandatory."
