For these purposes, RETAIL TRADERS are considered to be those who regularly sell property and livestock without having subjected them to processing, elaboration or manufacturing, provided that sales to end consumers during the previous year were less than 80% of the total sales made.If the activity was not carried out in said year, or was taxed according to the objective estimate method of Personal Income Tax, and the taxpayer has the condition of a retailer for Business Activities Tax, there is no need to meet the requirement of the minimum sales percentage.
If these requirements are not met, the general scheme shall apply.Nevertheless, there are some retail trade activities that can be taxed under the simplified regime.
