Puerto Rico Announces Unified System of Internal Revenue (SURI)

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico's Treasury Department announced that, effective October 31, 2016, a new electronic system called SURI (Unified System of Internal Revenue) will replace the current sales and use tax system (PICO). SURI will be the only digital tool merchants will have available for their sales and use tax transactions.

On October 15th, merchants must update their Certificates of Registration in SURI. Once the conversion process is complete, merchants will receive an email stating that their registration has been processed and that they can access SURI. The new Certificate of Registration will replace the current certificate.

The former system, PICO, will no longer be available as of October 28th at 3:45 PM.

SURI will eventually be used for other taxes, including corporate and income taxes. These phases will roll out in 2017 and 2018.
