  • Uruguay’s Executive Branch has increased the income limit for taxpayers to qualify for the simplified personal income tax regime for the 2023 tax period.

Taxpayers with a salary of up to UYU50,200 (approximately US$1,290) per month and UYU602,400 annually (approximately US$15,450), qualify to apply to the simplified regime with respect to personal income tax, according to Decree N°20/023, provided that they receive a salary derived from an economically dependent relationship.

The taxpayer’s personal income tax cannot be assessed as a family unit and the taxpayers cannot have generated taxable income as an independent contractor in order to be eligible to apply to this regime.
