Legal Entities Tax

A list including the non-complying companies of the Legal Entities Tax, for the 2015 period, was published. The Tax Authorities informed that a formal claim for payment will be submitted before resorting to a judicial collection process.

As the new Legal Entity Tax Law has not yet been approved by Congress, no tax obligation will be effective for the 2016 fiscal period.
