This means that the rate established by Netflix must be added a 64%.
By provision of the national government, the following additional taxes are applied, which must also be paid for contracting any platform either Netflix Amazon Prime Video and HBO Max, Spotify among other:
- Value added tax (VAT) of 21%
- Transaction tax (PAIS) of 8%
