"Rules of VAT Game" Unknown (El Sol de Tijuana, 1/8/13 by Juan Guizar)
Tijuana, BC - Exporters in the border maquiladora industry warned that applying a tax to the added value (VAT) for temporary imports generates $18 million, which results in a decline of investments, operations and decapitalization of companies.
The President of the agency, Federico Serrano Bañuelos, said that there is still uncertainty because "the rules of the game" are unknown in working with the Ministry of Finance understanding tax reform.
This productive sector, one of the main generators of employment at the border, is struggling because there is legal and fiscal uncertainty. "We have been playing out there with how much VAT will apply to temporary imports, but do not know or how, when, or how much," he stated.
If they apply a 11% tax in the current concept that does not pay. The industry must deliver $18 million dollars, an amount that must be already drawn from budgets, expansion plans, recruitment, innovation and competitiveness, said Serrano Bañuelos.
Currently, 20 maquiladoras associations in the country are holding meetings using work tables to encourage lawmakers to reach agreements that will keep the benefits brought by this sector through employment. In addition, for each job generated, three are created indirectly.
"We know that taxes have to be paid, we are never going to stop paying taxes, but if VAT is applied to temporary imports, it is going to have an impact, depending on the size and turnover of each industry," he ended.
