Overview of the 2016 Mexican Tax Reform Act
WHITE PAPER |
In late December 2015, the Mexican Congress approved tax-related changes, most of which are applicable for tax years beginning on or after Jan. 1, 2016. Although the bill does not have substantial changes in terms of tax rates or procedures to determine the tax liability, it is somewhat polarizing in that it includes stringent reporting requirements pursuant to the OECD’s BEPS initiative, while at the same time offers interesting tax incentives for enterprises in the energy industry.
RSM’s Edgar Lopezlena summarizes the bill and highlights certain issues that affected companies should consider in order to potentially reduce adverse tax effects or maximize potential tax benefits.
