Subsequently, the AFIP began a series of controls on the beneficiaries. The cross-references of information that emerged from the agency’s databases made it possible to initiate audits in order to identify firms that may have artificially increased or subtracted their income and thus access state support.

Within this framework, the specialized areas of the AFIP identified fraudulent maneuvers with the ATP. The agency’s agents verified sales manipulation declared to access the benefit.

As a result of these inspection and control tasks, it was possible to recover $130 million from taxpayers who returned these irregularly obtained aids. The main sectors that made the reimbursements were transportation with 40 million pesos, oil with 37 million pesos and food for more than 30 million pesos, among others.
