If they pay taxes under the RIF and file the notice to remain taxed under the aforementioned regime and later want to change to the Simplified Trust Regime in the same year, they may do so as long as they meet the requirements.

What if I switch to Resico?

If they choose the Resico and have pending RIF benefits, they will be able to apply the accreditations, deductions and request a refund of the balances in favor that they had pending at the latest in the annual declaration for fiscal year 2022; after this fiscal year they will not be able to carry out said accreditations.

Example:

I am RIF and I changed to the new regime and I have pending refunds, I have to request my refund no later than the annual declaration for fiscal year 2022 (which is filed in April 2023).

If they choose to be in the Resico and do not have an active e.firma (electronic signature), they have up to June 30, 2022 to process it.
