Decree 375 of 9 April 2021 reduces the percentage of payments of advance income tax and supplementary tax to zero percent (0%) for taxpayers (grandes contribuyentes) operating in certain listed sectors. This relief is intended to improve cash flow for entities in the affected sectors (that is, sectors that continue to show negative economic growth).

Taxpayers not conducting listed business activities must continue to remit advance payments of income tax pursuant to normal procedures.
