The plan by the Tax Administration requires an investment of $20 million for the purchase of technological systems using scanners and electronic vehicle tax discs.
The Superintendency of Tax Administration (SAT) announced that it intends to submit a modernization plan for the customs offices of Santo Tomas, Central Customs, Puerto Quetzal, Tecum Uman and Pedro de Alvarado.
During the first month of the intervention in customs offices improvements have been noted in customs revenue.
According to Claudia Méndez, Intendent of Customs, customs revenue rose from a daily average of $7.7 million to $8.5 million. He added that last November nearly 20,000 operational actions at the customs offices in Tecum Uman, port of Quetzal, Santo Tomas de Castilla Port and Pedro de Alvarado were carried out.
The authorities at customs offices in Guatemala and Honduras have opened new routes for regional transit of goods between the two countries.
The aim of the opening of new routes at the borders between the two countries, in El Florido and Agua Caliente, is to streamline regional trade which has been blocked because of the protests over the application of a fee of $18 in Salvadoran customs offices for X-ray inspection of trucks.
