Regulation and interpretation of the Tax Reform II: A year since its implementation

Date: 13 of march of 2018

Time: 8:00 am - 6:30 pm

Place: Universidad Externado de Colombia

The Externadista Center for Tax Studies (CEEF) invites all interested to participate in the second Enrique Low Murtra Seminar (SELM), to be held at our House of Studies on March 13, 2018.

On this occasion, having reached the one-year anniversary of the enactment of Law 1819 of 2016, the event will focus on analyzing the regulation and interpretation of the Tax Reform.

The meeting is vitally important, as in recent months there have been constant changes by regulatory decrees and the issuance of official doctrine.  Also, taking into account that 2018 is the first year tax returns are filed based on the changes contained in Law 1819 / 2016.

In view of the above, the speakers will present an assessment of the main aspects needed to be taken into consideration based on the legal changes, regulation, and the doctrine issued by the DIAN, as well as its accordance with the regulations on social security and other tax obligations, such as VAT, ICA, billing, and reporting information, among others. Also addressed will be the tax authorities’ control criteria.

Also, the book “Análisis Crítico de las Reformas al Estatuto Tributario” (Critical Analysis of the Tax Code Reform) on the research carried out by CEEF researchers, will be launched during the event.
