The new rule includes the following:

  • Services rendered by investment fund administrators are exempt from value added tax (VAT).
  • Withdrawals of assets are not subject to the Dominican tax imposed on certain financial transactions (that is, the tax imposed on cheques and electronic transfers).

The guidance also addresses the requirements for the registration by investment funds with the DGII.
