For some years the tax authorities and the courts have upheld as a general rule that late-payment interest was not deductible for corporate income tax purposes before the current Corporate Income Tax Law (Law 27/2014, of November 27, 20109) whereas it was deductible after that law came into force. The National Appellate Court has now come to the opposite conclusion.
The decision adopted on October 1, 2020 by commercial judges practicing in Barcelona, Tarragona, Gerona and Lérida states that insolvency receivers, owners or lawyers must report to the Directorate General for Industry of the Catalan Generalitat government regarding any companies with operating business units that have given a pre-insolvency notice, are in insolvency proceedings or other difficult situations, remotely on a standard form with the company’s main particulars.
