The client is a company that manufactures textile products for decoration of residential spaces and accommodation, mainly producing bed linen and curtains. Its products are mainly aimed to hotels. During their marketing, they import products into Dominican territory for timely delivery to their customers.
As a result, they are taxable persons of obligations at Dominican customs. Under this virtue, and in the face of a control process carried out by the General Direction of Customs (DGA) where it was intended to collect expired taxes, Alburquerque assisted the client by representing it in conciliation proceedings with the General Direction of Customs (DGA), as well as a reconsideration appeal at administrative headquarters. In the absence of a timely response, the firm proceeded to initiate an administrative delay appeal before the Administrative Superior Court, and finally a tax litigation appeal, ensuring that the amounts intended to be collected were excluded.
By bringing this appeal, where the Firm represented the client, it was possible to exclude the amount up to US$1,350,000.00 intended to be collected by the General Direction of Customs (DGA) by means of enforcement by debt certificate.
