Chile weighing 19% tax on international OTT providers

Friday 11 January 2019 | 09:24 CET | News
Chile is considering proposals for a new tax of up to 19 percent on multinational providers of over-the-top (OTT) digital services such as Amazon, Netflix, Uber, Airbnb and Spotify, reports Reuters citing finance minister Felipe Larrain. The country has been discussing the introduction of such a tax since June last year, but the new rate is nearly double that originally proposed and has received the support of Chile's Chamber of Commerce, the Confederation of Production and Commerce and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
