Honduran Customs System Under Criticism

The National Association of Honduran Customs Agents complained about the difficulties with the Honduran Automated System for Customs Income (SARAH).

Thursday, May 14, 2009

In an interview with Hondudiario.com, the vice president of the National Association of Honduran Customs Agents (FENADUANAH), Gustavo Chévez, indicated that the system implemented by the Executive Directorate of Revenue (DEI) "has generated more losses instead of profits for Customs."

The manager said that the system still does not work 100% more than a month after SARAH was implemented.

"Chévez explained that this situation has caused importers to have overstay costs that are increasing and that they will ultimately reach the consumer," according to the article in Hondudiario.com.
