The simplification consists in determining a monthly tax advance payment, fixed throughout the tax year, in the amount of 1/12 of the amount of income from business activity, shown in the annual tax return for the year preceding (or two years preceding) a given tax year.

Taxpayers who decide to pay advance income tax in a simplified form are obliged to:
