Las cláusulas especiales antiabuso en Colombia

Los invitamos a leer la más reciente publicación de nuestra socia Laura Sanint en Taxlatam sobre las cláusulas antiabuso en Colombia.

“Quizás por lo reciente de la inclusión de la mayoría de las cláusulas especiales antiabuso en la legislación tributaria colombiana o quizás porque desde la práctica lo relevante es la consecuencia de las mismas, la doctrina y la jurisprudencia no han entrado a analizar en detalle cuándo las normas son una cláusula especial antiabuso, cuál es la finalidad de las mismas y cuál es la forma de hacer efectivas sus particularidades (recaracterización, limitación, presunción, etc.).”
