Costa Rica Introduces VAT System


By Global Tax Weekly

There’s been a lot of activity with regard to VAT and GST internationally recently, not least in Costa Rica, which introduced VAT on July 1, and recently confirmed that public institutions will be subject to value-added tax from 2020.

Costa Rica has introduced a new value-added tax regime, in place of the sales tax, featuring a 13 percent headline rate, and three reduced rates, of four, two, and one percent.

Further bedding in the new system, the Costa Rican tax authority also late this month released new online forms for declaring value-added tax, capital income, and capital gains.

On June 29, 2019, Costa Rica released a step-by-guide guide on how to fill out form D-104, which must be filed by value-added tax registered persons for the first time between August 1 and August 16.
