For his part, the owner of the Federal Administration of Public Revenues (AFIP), Carlos Castagnetosaid that General Instruction 7, which establishes the early warning system, “comes to maximize fiscal order” and gave as an example that last Monday “a record seizure of illegal soybeans was achieved in the north of the country.”

Michel indicated that the monitoring will allow Customs, in joint work with the AFIP, to exchange information with the Central Bank and the Ministry of Agriculture in real time and detect non-settlement maneuvers.

In this regard, he pointed out that if the company wants to continue operating, it must guarantee the foreign currency with surety insurance or a bond, otherwise it will be preventively suspended from the exporters’ registry until it duly justifies the non-liquidation of foreign currency.

The first group on which the Customs is working includes 50 exporting companies of grains that did not liquidate US$ 315 million, have already been suspended from the register of exporters and will not be able to continue operating.

“The irregular maneuver is strongly concentrated in the first 10 suspended exporters that concentrate more than 77% of the unsettled currencies”indicated Customs in a statement, in which it also specified that “the next step is to investigate the economic capacity of each of the companies and denounce them for non-liquidation of foreign currency and, if applicable, for money laundering, notifying this to FIU (Financial Information Unit)”.

“As many of the financial operations touched US banks, we are evaluating moving forward so that through the legal mechanisms available to the FIU, investigations are activated in the FinCEN (office of the United States Department of the Treasury that performs the powers of the Financial Intelligence Unit)“, they added at Customs.

Michel expressed his confidence in the efforts of the Economy Minister Sergio Massato advance in the massive exchange of financial information with USA and overcome the current scheme of “case by case”.

The official pointed out the importance of control and inspection tasks, and pointed out that cases of triangulation were detected “that exceed what is doctrinal and are already gross scams.”

In this regard, he indicated that he delayed his arrival at the meeting because he was monitoring a series of “raids in free zones”, in which it was detected that a company that sold chinstraps “sent them five times to Uruguay and imported them again.”

To make it clear that this is not an isolated case, he pointed out that since his assumption as head of Customs on July 1 of this year, 715 overbilling operations have already been reported for a total of US$ 633 million.

Michel proposed to the members of the Council the formation of consultative mechanisms to address the growing commercial exchange, and stressed that this year Argentine exports will be around $90 billion.

“The tasks of the accountant, the lawyer, the dispatcher can be complemented, they are not exclusive,” remarked the head of Customs.
