2. Bill that modifies balance in favor refunds process

The bill establishes a decrease in the administration's time to return income tax balance in favor, reducing them from 50 days to 30 days. It is important to mention that the term for refunding the VAT balance would remain at 50 days.

Additionally, the automatic refund is extended to individuals who earn wages and/or fees for services, as long as they do not be considered a high risk taxpayer according to the risk analysis systems for the DIAN.

3. A new unified concept of cryptoassets

On October 17th, 2023, the Legal division of the DIAN issued a new unified concept of cryptoassets, which focuses on developing their tax treatment regarding income tax and VAT.

Thus, taxpayers will be able to obtain a better comprehension on questions such as when the income is considered taxable, their tax cost, and the applicable withholdings, among others.
