According to recent reports, Guatemala's tax authority (SAT) has started the process for the implementation of the Digital Economy Compliance (DEC) System. The DEC System was developed by the Inter-American Center of Tax Administrations (CIAT) in cooperation with the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) to facilitate the implementation of effective mechanisms for the taxation of the digital economy.
