Puerto Rico's VAT tax and rate increase for business to business (B2B) services are set to go into effect on June 1, 2016. However, the laws that created the VAT and rate increase for B2B services may be repealed before June 1, 2016.

Earlier this month, Puerto Rico's legislature sent a bill to the governor's office that would repeal the VAT and B2B tax increase. The Puerto Rico governor vetoed this bill, and right now the changes are set to go into effect on June 1, 2016.

However, part of the legislature has already voted to override the governor's veto, and the other part will be voting on the issue later this week.

TTR will provide updates on this issue as they become available.
