Guatemala: Greater Control for Multinational Companies

Regulators will oversee sales operations and transfer of funds from multinational companies based in the country and overseas branches.

The Superintendence of Tax Administration will create an international audit department, which will start operations in March.

The project is supported by the U.S. Treasury Office and the German Cooperation Agency.
