A weekly summary of the top weekly tax news, trends
and developments in the Americas


      This week's tax news from the Americas

  • Canada tables Federal Budget 2024--2025
    On 16 April 2024, Deputy Prime Minister and Federal Finance Minister, Chrystia Freeland, tabled the federal budget 2024-25. The budget contains tax measures affecting individuals and corporations, including an increase in the capital gains inclusion rate, but no change to the general corporate tax rate or the general personal income tax rates. Several of these measures were pre-announced leading up to budget day.
  • Mexico postpones visa requirement for nationals of Peru until 6 May 2024
    On 18 April 2024, the Mexican government announced that the implementation of the visa requirement for nationals of Peru who travel to Mexico for business or tourism purposes has been postponed until 6 May 2024. This follows an announcement by the Peruvian government that it had rescinded its decision to require Mexican nationals to obtain a visa prior to entry into Peru.
  • Honduras eliminates consular visa requirement for Bolivian nationals entering the country
    Bolivian nationals may now enter Honduras for business or tourism purposes using only their valid passports (without a consular visa) for up to 90 days cumulatively per calendar year. The agreement came into effect on 17 March 2024. The visa exemption applies to holders of ordinary Bolivian passports that are valid for at least six months who enter Honduras for business (e.g., to attend meetings, conferences, training sessions) or as tourists for up to 90 days cumulatively per calendar year.
  • The Latest on BEPS and Beyond | April 2024

  • UPDATED! EY Green Tax Tracker (April 2024) | Get ahead and stay ahead of evolving global green tax policies
    The EY Green Tax Tracker provides an overview of the green taxes and exemptions, sustainability incentives and carbon pricing regimes in effect in an ever-growing number of jurisdictions. Global sustainability policies and regulations are advancing at a rapid pace. As they grow in number and impact, so do the associated business impacts, risks and opportunities. The Green Tax Tracker can help you get ahead and stay ahead.
  • EU Public Country-by-Country Reporting (PCbCR) Developments Tracker now available
    Under the European Union (EU) PCbCR Directive, certain multinational enterprise (MNE) groups operating in the EU are required to publicly disclose income taxes paid, and other tax and non-tax related information. As countries continue to transpose the Directive into national law, local nuances have emerged, which need to be carefully considered by MNE groups in scope. The EU PCbCR Developments Tracker provides an overview of the Directive and how each EU Member State and European Economic Area country is implementing the Directive.
