o Taxpayers who register for a tax ID during fiscal years 2014 and 2015.
- A new Appendix 24 is published amending the form of the group codes that had been previously published. Additionally, a more extensive chart of accounts is published to which first level ledger accounts and subaccounts were added.
- The monthly sending dates were amended as follows:
o The chart of accounts will be sent for the first time when the first trial balance is sent.
o The monthly trial balance will be sent no later than the first 3 days of the second following month. In this regard, the first trial balance to be sent shall be no later than March 3, 2015.
o Taxpayers must include the detailed vouchers in their accounting. However, they are to be sent only upon request from the authority or when favorable balances are to be compensated or a refund thereof is requested.
The above changes will become effective on the day following their publication in the Federal Official Gazette. As of the day of this communication, they have not been published.
