  1. well this is interesting...


    now after I paid the last of my back taxes,

    I can see a normal page in the national registry site on my account


    but it says the following, which makes no sense in google translate..

    if you k ow, please let me know, it looks like I have no periods pending to pay, and the corporation was dissolved?




    here it is:




  2. AWWWK!


    re: corporations:


    as I mentioned before, I had a 20 year old corporation in costa rica

    it had no books, no assets and no associated business


    I did not know there were new taxes, as of a new law in 2012 or so


    when I went on line to the national registry, I could login and click on

    Impuerto Juridicas ,



    (sorry about spelling) and it would tell me all the years of taxes and what I owed.


    4 years, from 2012-2015 inclusive.


    In the last 8 months, I have paid 3 of those years, almost 900.00


    I only had 2015 left to pay


    But...when I logged in today, it no longer shows any information for me


    it told me this:



    Delinquency Public Inquiry

    Law No. 9024 Tax on Legal Entities

    The class of legal person indicated is not subject to collection.

    Important Notice: The Bank of Costa Rica was authorized to pay delinquent periods individually, in order of seniority.



    does anyone know what this may mean?


    I emailed my lawyer, but he does not always respond to email questions


    I am going to BCR today and ask if they know,




  3. Hi


    I was soon going to start paying my back taxes on my old old old corp[oration , so I can dissolve it afterwards.




    1. have they re-instituterd the tax already?


    the reason I ask is when I go login to the registry at my corporation


    it shows back taxes owing of about 550,000 Colones


    for 4 years, 2012-2015


    I thought that people only had to pay for 3 years


    maybe I am confused


    2. I know now how to pay my CAJA online using my banco nacional online account


    can I pay corporate taxes on line too?


    what buttons would I click on after I log in?







  4. thanks


    the pdf was helpful, more than the video, cause I printed it out and followed it


    yes, my corp[oration says its still registered


    and there 'is' another place to chack, I did not see it


    my lawyer just emailed me a screen capture, and it showed me a summary of all my back taxes from 2011, to 2015


    I have to pay about 1000.00 to be able to dissolve the corporation, which I will do


    I also have to pay 200.00 to file a letter to get my corporate books (whatever those are)


    before I file a dissolution form.


    I have lots of time, I can't afford it right now, but at least I know that I won't be charged anymore taxes after 2015

    after the new laws came into effect.




  5. thanks


    I am confused


    where do you want me to seach for 'no taxes paid for a long time" corporation?'


    here in this forum?


    2. are you saying that I cannot dissolve my corporation? or maybe not just by myself


    my lawyer said that he can dissolve it for a fee, but I would have to pay the back taxes



    I will look at this document


    there is a video on youtube on how to look at the registry also


    I will be buying real; estate in the future as a private person, as long as this old corporation does not hinder that



    I will gladly pay the fees and dissolve it








  6. Has anyone ever had an old corporation years ago and let it alone for years?


    I had a corporation more than a decade ago. I never used it. I



    I did not know that now you pay taxes on it. Years ago. you did not have to.


    Mine is 3 years in the rears. I never was given minutes or books or whatever you are supposed to have on it.


    Now I am worried thyat if I ever but real estate in CR, there may be ab issue.




    My lawyer told me that after 3 years the CR govt. will dissolve the corp automatically


    but its still in question what will happen.


    I am inclined to pay the 3 years of tax and then dissolve it formally


    any ideas on this?









  7. Hi


    Maybe someone has gone through this many years ago.

    I plan to move in late 2015 to Costa Rica.


    I only have so much Canadian money to convert to US

    and the worry I have now is that my plans may be dashed

    because the Canadian dollar that was 96 cents when I started this

    plan, is not almost 80 cents


    Its ridiculus

    I have no faith in this nCanadianj currency at all

    when i plan to spend 200 K US, I now have 49 K less to spend because of the exchange.


    I heard that if I build a house rather than buy one, I can save 30%

    that would offset what I lose on the exchange\


    or..i can just wait a year (maybe) for the dollar to go back up


    any experience out there on this?
