The new salary was adopted by the administrative body of the Judiciary, during the session of December 15, 2020.

The base salary serves as a parameter during the year, to calculate the various monetary penalties established in the Criminal Code, in the Law of Public Registry Tariffs, tax on legal entities (corporations), tax on real estate, the Labor Code and family support, among others.

The penalty for a crime under a criminal coder for say aggravated theft, simple robbery, or fraud may be x times the base salary to calculate violation or breach of obligations.

A fine of three times the base salary imposed would equal to ¢41,386,000 colones.
