The new tax regime is pursuant to measures contained in Law 47-20. The new rules aim to promote public-private alliances that: (1) contribute to the economic growth of the Dominican Republic; and (2) promote the flow of investment funds that in turn broaden and modernize the public services network.

Among the tax relief measures for eligible public-private alliance projects are the following:

  • A temporary value added tax (VAT) relief (refund) mechanism that, for a period of five years, applies to the purchase or rental of equipment, materials, and supplies directly related to a construction project, or to the repair or expansion of infrastructure projects
  • Accelerated depreciation or amortization regarding eligible projects
