Mexico has proposed two changes to the Value Added Tax obligations on foreign providers of digital services to its consumers:
- Move from quarterly VAT returns to monthly reporting
- Raise fines on providers who fail to submit returns for three consequative filings
Mexico VAT on digital services was introduced in June 2020. There are now 110 digital service providers on Mexico’s list of digital service providers required to submit returns.
The measures were announced on 8 September 2021 as part of the 2022 economic proposal by the President to Congress.
