Today, January 31, is the last day to pay the “corporations tax”. And according to the Registro Nacional, only some 100.000 have paid been paid, leaving more than 500.000 still to pay.

Starting tomorrow, interest and penalty charges start to add. In addition, the Registro will not provide certifications for corporations with outstanding tax.

All “active” corporations are required to pay a tax of ¢189.700 colones (US$383) and “inactive” one half of that. All corporations are deemed active unless the necessary filing is made to make it inactive.
