Emerging Law for Conservation of Employment - Decree 19-16

Written by Jose Roberto Cuevas  /  Published: Thursday, 11 February 2016

After several attempts in Congress for the approval of the Investment and Employment Promotion Act, no concensus was achieved for its approval.

 

In order to protect the employment level currently achieved in the Clothing and Textile Industry, as well as the Call Centers and Technology Companies, Decree 19-16 has passed in Congress, named "Emerging Law for Conservation of Employment".

 

This law allows Clothing and Textile, as well as Call Centers and Technology Companies, to apply for 10 years of income tax benefits for income generated from their sales.

 

For the rest of the sectors, there are no possibilities to extend their income tax benefit.

 

Based on the commitment Guatemala has before the WTO, this initiative eliminates income tax benefits for income generated from export activities, as of January 1st, 2016.
