Costa Rica’s tax administration released a draft version of a resolution that would require multinational enterprises (MNEs) to file a country-by-country (CbC) report in accordance with the recommendations of the OECD’s base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) Action 13.
According to the draft resolution, MNEs with an annual consolidated group revenue that is equal to or exceeds €750 million (or its equivalent in local currency) for the reporting fiscal (tax) year, must file a CbC report. The information to be included will need to be an overview of allocation of income, taxes and business activities by jurisdiction, and a list of constituent entities of the MNE group, among other details.
The CbC report will be submitted as an XML file, to an email address to be enabled by the tax administration, at least one month before the CbC report filing deadline.
Once the draft version of the resolution is published in the official gazette, comments can be submitted.
