Our Tax Compliance Services

Handling the complexities of the Chilean tax system can be daunting. At Chile-Business, we offer expert guidance to ensure timely and accurate tax compliance for your business operations in Chile. Our services are designed to relieve you of the heavy burden of tax compliance, helping you avoid fines, audits, and investigations while ensuring precise adherence to all tax regulations.

1. Monthly Tax Statements

We manage your monthly tax obligations, including the calculation and payment of withholding taxes and additional taxes such as VAT. Our services ensure that all indirect tax compliance requirements are met, helping you stay on top of your monthly tax responsibilities.

2. Commercial Activity Formalization

Before starting any commercial or professional activity, businesses must formalize their intentions with the Chilean Tax Authority (SII) after obtaining an ID Tax Number. We assist you in this formalization process to ensure compliance from the outset.

3. Representation before the Chilean tax authority, and other tax related institutions

All companies and foreign shareholders operating in Chile require a local legal representative. In the simplest terms, the representative is the legal “face” of the company who is liable for the local entities’ actions in Chile.

From a practical perspective, the legal representative is essentially the person that the government can hold responsible for or summon to court hearings on behalf of the company should something happen. In the case of a foreign investor / company incorporating a company in Chile, there are two cases when a legal representative is needed.

The first is to represent the foreign shareholder and the person needs to be appointed when registering the foreign shareholder for a local tax number. The second is to represent the local company and the person needs to be appointed when drafting the articles of incorporation in Chile. If the legal representative is changed after the company is already operating, a new power of attorney needs to be provided and it needs to be registered in the bylaws.

4. Annual Tax Statements

We prepare and file annual tax statements for both national and foreign companies and individuals. This includes a thorough review of your taxable income to ensure accurate reporting and compliance with Chilean tax regulations.

5. Mandatory Affidavits

In accordance with tax regulations and the requirements of the Tax Authority (SII), taxpayers must submit various affidavits throughout the year. Non-compliance with these requirements can lead to significant consequences. We assist with the preparation and submission of mandatory affidavits, including:

  • Transfer Pricing Declarations: Ensuring compliance with transfer pricing rules.
  • Foreign Investment Declarations: Reporting foreign investment activities.
  • Real Estate Declarations: Complying with real estate tax obligations.
  • Income Tax Declarations: Accurate reporting of all income sources.
  • VAT Declarations: Ensuring proper VAT reporting and payment.
