Tax Credits for Construction Companies

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on December 21, 2009

Chile’s tax rebate scheme law 20365 for the housing industry ended on 31 December 2013. After the election the new government promised to reactivate the tax credits at the beginning of 2015, but this is still pending (status: May 2015) because only the chamber of deputies approved the new regulation, but not the senat.
