The tax forms will be available for companies and corporations registered in the Single Tax Registry (RUT) with the activity code "960113", which stands for "inactive company."


An inactive corporation is "…those companies incorporated in the country that do not have lucrative nor income-producing activity of a Costa Rican source." That is incorporated to register assets in its names, such as vehicles or properties, and does not carry out any economic activity.

Also, please consider that you must hire a CR accountant to submit the filing, as the balance sheet and corporate accounting records are mandatory. Your accountant or authorized person will access the ATV -tax site for online tax submission- to file the forms on behalf of your corporation.

The corporate books shall be updated with the same information that will be declared on the tax forms to reflect all agreements related to the corporation balance, assets, liabilities, and equity value.


The non-compliance will carry heavy fines and penalties.
