Entry into force preamble the law on bases of the Tax Ordinance approved on December 19, 1996 he set up a "basic" in the matter and has allowed us to consolidate the principles of Justice, legality and law and equitable distribution of the tax burden set out in the Constitution. The above-mentioned law unified the criteria applicable to all existing tax figures and especially allowed to establish the foundations of the relations between the Administration and the taxpayers.
In the search for the necessary resources to deal with the financial needs of the Principality, the burden of consumption and of the provision of services has been key to the consolidation of the unified tax structure indirectly by now in a single general indirect tax (IGI).
The Principality is living a great tax reform with the appearance of new figures of direct character and personal nature, which existence is essential at the current stage of economic globalization and where Andorra search their space, with a clear desire to convey confidence and transparency.
Thus, in the path of the approaching of the Andorran tax system current and future taxpayers, while the legal systems of the environment, this policy aims to strengthen the guarantees of the administered but also comes to reinforce the means and mechanisms that should enable the tax administration to optimize the efficiency in the collection of all taxes.
This law is the announcement of a profound shift from the Andorran tax administration must be accompanied by other laws with the aim of adapting and unify the administrative units of the Government have been spent to date on the tax collection and management of different nature, such as the customs.
Thus, this law devotes a section of title and to determine how they should be interpreted the rules in this area and introduces among others, the concept of the abuse of tax rules.
The title II is devoted to the tax regime, from the birth of the debt until its extinction. Appropriate to highlight the appearance of different types of surcharges and the birth of the moratori interest. In this title there are the obligations and the duties of the directors, along with a wider development of the rights and guarantees of the tax obligation. Equally relevant is the fact that you need the responsibilities of taxable including for example, the subsidiary responsibility of the administrators who have ceased in their offices. In the same way, the law also provides for in what circumstance can be declared responsible for subsidiaries of those people that happen in the ownership or in the exercise of economic activities, to the previous owner's tax obligations arising from its exercise.
The law also foresees the signing of collaboration agreements with the banks in the Principality, with the aim of facilitating the completion of payment of tax obligations. Strength is of note however, that until the signing of these agreements, we will accept the payment in any of the banks in the country, in accordance with the provisions of the first transitional provision.
The calculation of the prescription and the causes of discontinuation also change markedly on tax with the approval of this law.
Appear in this title also the possibility for the Administration to decide ex officio make compensation tax debts with credits of any nature, in those conditions that determine the future regular deployment. In this way the compensation no longer need be applied only upon request of the tax obligation.
Finally, it is equally interesting to note that in this title II the law used to establish provisional measures of a temporary nature, that can be taken in order to ensure the payment of tax obligations and between which there is the payment of withholding tax returns.
Of title III that regulates the procedure of tax collection and management you can highlight the importance given to the obligations that fall on the tax authorities to inform and assist those taxable in applying the taxes. Will create new procedures and is binding to the responses that the Government give tax consultations that may be directed and to the applications for evaluation of elements determinants of tax debts. In this title is awarded to the Government the possibility of adopting special agreements for strategic investments that could be in the Principality, with very specific characteristics.
The law States quite the obligation of information that falls on all the people both physical and legal entities and professionals that have knowledge of the tax administration tax content data of what they have. Articles 68 and 69 proposed respond to the demands that will emanate from the international economic agreements relating to the exchange of tax information that cannot be ignored, at the same time to remind you of the public funding is all and that requires the cooperation of both organisations and institutions as well as all the people and professionals of different sectors to ensure its effectiveness. The possibility that the exceptions provided in this text in tax matters may contradict the law 15/2003, of December 18, qualified protection of personal data, makes the content of articles 68 and 69 must be approved with the rank of law.
On the other hand, in this title makes a distinction between the home and the home needed to ensure their protection and to regulate the conditions of entry into each of them in case of need. Trying to be a fundamental right, article 72 that regulates the entry to the address of the tax obligation, must also be approved by the rank of law.
Takes advantage of the law to distinguish in detail the stages of management, inspection and tax collection, deeper into each of the procedures. So for example, establish deadlines for expiration of proceedings and more procedures of hearing in favor of taxable. Over the course of this title are any event in which the lodging of an appeal may suspend the procedure in progress.
Possibly the most important novelty of this law appears in the article 108 and following, which empowers the Administration to proceed with the seizure of goods and rights that, in general terms, should be able to be auctioned at the end of the procedure, should be required to guarantee the payment of the tax debt. The procedure is the subject of a comprehensive regulation. Section 4 of article 108 also refers to the fundamental right of inviolability of the home, so it has to be approved at the same time with the rank of law.
The title IV is intended entirely to the sanctioning of the tax administration and begin establishing the guiding principles (the presumption of good faith of the tax obligation, the principle of responsibility in tax violations and of non-concurrence of tax infringements). The procedure is detailed at length and includes new tipificacions that are adapted to the numerous innovations foreseen in this law. Regarding sanctions, this new legislation also establishes temporary limitations on the length of proceedings, for the benefit of the tax obligation.
In the process of contesting that are object of the title V also there are modifications appropriate to highlight. Here comes the Tax technical Commission which empowers, mainly, to resolve administrative appeals that interject against the actions carried out within the framework of the implementation of the present law. Deserves a special mention, the establishment of a period of one month to complete the administrative resources in tax matters.
Finally, this text contains two additional provisions, four transitional provisions that should facilitate the incorporation of this law in our legal system; a repealing and five final provisions. The Act ends with the final provision that announces that its entry into force should take place on 1 January 2015.
