Employers are Demanding Fiscal "Fair Play"
In Honduras, representatives from private companies request that the names of 34 large taxpayers who are allegedly evading paying their taxes be made public.
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
The president of the Honduran Council of Private Enterprise (COHEP), Aline Flores, has called for the publication of the names of large companies that are allegedly evading their tax obligations. "We will not allow 34 companies to stain the name of more than 620 companies who are major contributors", said Flores.
An announcement has been made that 34 large companies suspected of tax evasion will be audited by foreign experts.
Businesses complain that the new law will give unlimited power to tax authorities to seize companies's information.
The Honduran Council of Private Enterprise is warning about a potential loss of competitiveness for companies investing in the country.
The Constitutional Court has rejected the constitutional challenge presented by the business sector and left in place the collection of 1.5% income tax.
