The Ministry of Finance and Public Function will increase the limits exempt from the provision of providing guarantees in requests for postponement or fractioning of tax debts from 30,000 to 50,000 euros. This is clear from the draft order submitted to the hearing and public information process, collected by Europa Press, which provides for the entry into force of the rule on April 15, 2023.
According to the Department headed by María Jesús Montero, the purpose of this order is to maintain the ultimate purpose of the exemption provided, granting facilities for the fulfillment of its obligations in the face of possible economic and financial difficulties of a transitory nature and expediting the management procedure for these requests. by promoting its automated management.
Faced with the “difficulties” caused by the crisis
