Tax Update - Act 107 - Condo Associations Exempt from Sales and Value Added Tax

posted Jul 31, 2015, 2:54 PM by Isla CPA   [ updated Jul 31, 2015, 2:54 PM ]
The most recent amendment to the Puerto Rico revenue code (Act 1 from 2011) was enacted on July 2, 2015. Act 107 effectively exempts providers of services to Condo Owner's Association in Puerto Rico from the responsibility to collect Sales and Value Added Tax.

The law also relieved Owner's Associations from the 4% "business to business" tax on professional services previously contemplated in Act 72 from May 29, 2015.

This is a welcomed relieve for all Owner's associations which were facing an inevitable 10-15% increase of all monthly maintenance fees billed to unit owners starting October 1, 2015 in order to be able to balance their operating budgets, if these taxes were to go into effect.
