Uruguayan Tax Office informs 31 January deadline to communicate compliance with 'Tax Holiday' regime requirements

  • Individuals who opted for the "tax holiday" regime must inform the Tax Authorities no later than 31 January 2024 that the conditions for fiscal year 2023 have been fulfilled.

According to the Resolution No. 898/021, taxpayers who have opted to extend the Tax Holiday regime (see EY Global Tax Alert, Uruguay modifies "tax holiday" regime, dated 11 February 2021), must inform the Tax Authorities by 31 January 2024 that the conditions for fiscal year 2023 have been fulfilled.

For these purposes, taxpayers must send an email to "" explaining that:

  1. The condition of 60 days of physical presence in the country during the 2023 calendar year was met (documentation from the National Directorate of Migration (NDM) showing immigration movements must be attached). If the NDM granted a request number to the taxpayer, the taxpayer should provide the request number to the Tax Authority.
  2. As of 22 January 2021, the individual acquired immovable property with an updated tax cost exceeding UI 3.5m (approximate US$526,650); a notarial certificate must be attached providing this information, identifying the property number, unit, department and locality, acquisition means, date and price of acquisition, and confirming that the property was still owned by the individual on 31 December 2023.

Resolution No. 898/021 was published in the Official Gazette on 2 June 2021 and became effective on the publication date. It can be accessed here (only in Spanish).
