Entities taxed at a rate of 1% and 0% in accordance with Article 29 sections 4 and 5 of the LIS do not have to make the aforementioned instalment payment and are not obliged to file the corresponding tax return.
A new company limited by shares is not required to make instalment payments on account of the tax returns corresponding to the first two tax periods ending after its incorporation.
