The International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) has once again featured a number of our global accountancy network members in its September edition.  

Update on tax and regulatory reform in Chile 

Viviana Rojas from our Chile firm,MGI Hernán Espejo y Asociados Ltdacommented on a new law published in February that modifies the calculation of estimated monthly provisional payments for business income, and a new invoice payment law that stateall invoices issued after 1 April 2020 must be paid within a maximum of 30 calendar days from receipt. 

Viviana explained: “Aside from tax reform, the most significant developments have been related to the adoption of international accounting rules – mainly NIIF 9, NIIF 15, NIIF 16 and IFRIC 23… from a local regulatory perspective it would be important to mention the restructuring of the former Superintendencia de Bancos e Instituciones Financieras [Superintendency of Banks and Financial Institutions] into the Comisión para el Mercado Financiero [Commission for the Financial Market]. 

Colombia’s accounting standards are strengthened   

Nancy Bermudez Caraballo from our firm in Colombia, MGI Páez Asociadosalso commented on new processes that continue to improve the standard of accounting in Colombia, explaining that “the implementation of financial reporting standards in the country has opened up new markets, strengthened foreign investment and helped Colombia meet the requirements to join the OECD.” 

Further member comments from Colombia 

Hector Fabio Mejia, from another of our Colombia firms, MGI VIA Consultoría S.A.S also featured in the discussion around accounting standards and the benefits they bring to the marketplace. He comments: “It is important to clarify that developments in the accounting services industry do not necessarily imply digitising, and that firms can also innovate by offering new services as differentiators in the market.”
