On January 7, the Internal Taxes Service (SII), through general regulation 1523314, published Resolution 153, which draws banks and financial entities into the SII information regime. It also establishes that they will have to report digital asset transactions.
The resolution brings banking and financial institutions into the information regime of the SII which, until now, only applied to stockbrokers and securities brokers.
The mentioned entities must submit an annual affidavit to the Service. This must contain information on transactions in the purchase and sale of corporations’ shares, other securities and digital assets, and other transactions involving such securities. You can access the document with instructions to complete the affidavit here.
The inclusion of digital assets in the SII information regime reflects the emergence of these new rights or tradable assets, which are “materialized” in bitcoins or other virtual assets.
