Any Non-profit Organization (association, foundation, etc) that exercises an activity of a religious, humanitarian, charity, scientific or educative character, etc., shall be obliged to submit by March 31st, 2017 the financial statements for the fiscal year 2016.

Whereas, Non-profit Organizations that have tax responsibility of income tax, shall send the Income Tax Declaration form as per the template approved by the Instruction of the Minister of Finance No. 5, dated 30/01/2006 “On income tax”, as amended, as well as the annual balance of the activity for the fiscal year 2016.
