Tax Advising and Petitions

Honduras imposes personal and corporate income tax on its residents that earn an income within Honduras. Honduran personal and corporate income tax also applies to non-residents of Honduras. The Honduran government also imposes a sales, capital gains, and land transfer tax.

The imposition of tax in Honduras follows the Principle of Territorial Income, meaning that individuals and entities are obligated to pay taxes on earnings within and originating from Honduras.

Honduras is composed of varying sizes of municipalities that impose their own municipal tax on individuals and entities conducting or residing within the municipality. Each municipality is unique in its own regard, offering differing tax incentives and calculations of its taxes.

Legal Audits

Legal audits can uncover legal issues that an organization has overlooked or has been unaware of. Like a due diligence review, an internal audit can reveal corporate governance vulnerabilities and other contracts, insurance, and employment vulnerabilities.

A periodic internal legal audit of your organization ensures that your operations and legal affairs comply. Any problems uncovered during the audit can be resolved before causing issues in the future.
