SAT contracts with a ghost firm.


SAT contracts with a ghost firm.

The Tax Administration Service (SAT), which oversees the correct payment and deduction of taxes, appeared in one of its own listings for having tax receipts for purchases made to a ghost company.

SAT Guadalajara Sur, through four invoices issued in 2014 by the company Servicios Legales & Valuatorios, S.C., verified expenditures with public resources for 162 thousand 602 pesos. Said company, through the official communication 500-30-2018-03018 of the SAT, is indicated for allegedly billing simulated operations.

This official communication dated on May 14, 2018, details that the SAT Guadalajara, by means of an invoice, justified expenses for 46 thousand 400 pesos for valuation services of auction of goods and a separate invoice, for physical inspection services of seized machinery.

Another of the invoices in comment, dated differently from the previous ones, was granted for a validatory report of embargoed machinery for a total of 46 thousand 400 pesos, also, the last invoice which was presented for a total of 38 thousand 401 pesos to justify the payment of appraisal fees for judicial auction.

However, the city of Tlaquepaque also, through an invoice issued by the mentioned company, Servicios Legales & Valuatorios, S.C., verified expenditures with public resources for 130 thousand 500 pesos for the impartation in the municipality of a workshop for electronic data processing.

The mentioned official communication 500-30-2018-03018 of the SAT, forms part of the various lists published for the correct fulfillment of article 69-B, which seek to reduce tax evasion through what is known as simulated operations.

Marco Antonio Mendoza, partner of the company Efos.Mx commented that “The process of 69-B is determined by an algorithm in the computer system, that’s why (The SAT Guadalajara Sur) came out on the lists. It means that the SAT is doing operations with ghost companies to justify expenses.”

The aforementioned company, Servicios Legal y Valuatorios, S.C. is currently in the sights of the Treasury as it is considered a Company that invoices Simulated Transactions, this is because the company was not located in its fiscal address, does not count with employees registered before the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) and it was determined that it does not have the human infrastructure or material to bill the reported services.
