A proposal has been made to avoid paralyzing the import process when a commodity shows "doubt on value" and investigate later the eventual errors in invoices.
Several entrepreneurs have complained about the fact that the Directorate General of Customs (DGA) stops the import process when a possible error in the value assigned to the goods on the invoice is detected, and they are demanding changes so that problems can be resolved later and for the customs clearance of goods to be allowed.
Entrepreneurs are unaware of new judicial courts especially dedicated to solving conflicts or disputes in this matter.
The entity was created a year ago and is responsible for resolving complaints and appeals related to tax and customs matters generated against institutions such as the Directorate General of Customs (DGA) and the Department of Revenue (DGI) .
Joint work by businessmen and the Customs Department has born fruit in solving the bureaucratic problems in importing products.
"Today if a customs official imposes a fine, they do not retain the goods, and it will not stop the process, we will ensure that processes are facilitated", said Aguerri Adam Joseph, president of the Superior Council of Private Enterprise(COSEP) at a press conference.
An erratum clarifying that VAT will not be collected on Central American products has been published in the official newspaper La Gaceta in Nicaragua.
Elnuevodiario.com, reports that "Today there will be a publication in the official newspaper La Gaceta of the Taxes Regulation Act which was approved last December by the National Assembly said the economist Rene Vallecillo yesterday."
The projected tax reform is a battlefield for the competing interests of the various productive sectors.
Both the Superior Council of Private Enterprise (COSEP) and the Union of Agricultural Producers of Nicaragua (UPANIC), are in favor of excluding the agricultural sector from the discussion of tax reform, meanwhile the National Workers Front (FNT) and the Nicaraguan Council of Small and Medium Enterprises (Conimipyme), reject such a position as discriminatory.
The interconnection will expedite the processing of business transactions between the two countries.
The 541 companies in El Salvador currently exporting goods to Nicaragua will be the first to benefit from the connection of the two offices, which will expedite the process of obtaining permits and other paperwork.
ATS El Salvador is a Customs Agency with 26 years of providing services for imports, exports, transits, consultancies and international transport.
