Managing the sales and use tax and indirect taxes can be complex.

Sales and use tax
The sales and use tax ("SUT") is the principal indirect tax in Puerto Rico. It is a tax on sales and use of taxable tangible property and services based on sales price. It is also applied to goods, imported for use or cons umption within Puerto Rico, and to items that will be part of inventor y for resale. We can provide you advice on the implications of the SUT to your business based on your industry.

As indirect tax grows in importance, the complexity, frequency of changes and scrutiny are also increasing. Accordingly, at Kevane Grant Thornton our SUT team can assist you with:

  • registrations
  • certificates
  • identify where transactions are taxed
  • preparation and submitting SUT monthly returns
  • "SUT Check-Up"to ensure your business is in good standing and avoid penalties
  • assistance with audit, assessments and voluntary disclosures
  • any other SUT consulting
