What Are We Doing in Colombia?

In 2020, we started working with DIAN, the Ministry of Mines and Energy, and Ministry of Finance and Public Credit on improving revenue collection from the mining industry.

Legal and Policy Support

We are reviewing their tax treaty network, tax incentives granted to the mining sector, and the Colombian regulatory framework to address BEPS risk for the mining sector.


We are developing guidance on pricing strategic minerals in Colombia. We are delivering trainings on financial transactions, offshore hubs, tax treaties, and mineral valuation. 

Audit Support

We are supporting DIAN on improving their risk assessment framework and case selection, and their training and auditing processes through the Tax Inspectors Without Borders program.
