First of all, I hope you’re safe and healthy.
The unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 have caused legal changes for many regions, and Colombia has been also impacted with some changes.
To make sure all companies and natural persons are able to meet their legal obligations on time, the government of Colombia has extended the deadlines for submitting Magnetic Media reports to Dirección de Impuestos y Aduanas Nacionales (DIAN) in 2020.
The announcement was done in Resolution 000027 of March 25, which comprises the reporting of the 2019 fiscal period.
For everyone to see: The picture shows a screenshot of a Twitter post by @DIANColombia, which announces that there are “New deadlines for meeting tax obligations”.
