Entrepreneurs have to use a special financial software to track ITBIS
All commercial enterprises in the Sosúa area have recently received a letter from the IRS (Direccion General de Impuestos Internos) in which they are given notice that they have to install a financial software program.
With this program the turnover of the company is exactly registered and what amount of ITBIS (value added tax) should be paid to the government. For smaller enterprises, the program costs about 80,000 peso. Larger companies have to pay several hundred thousand pesos for the program. In Sosúa at least the supermarket Playero, the Rumba Bar and liquor store SuperSuper have already purchased such a program and put it into use. All companies, big or small, will have to use the program from January 1, 2014. If not, the business will be closed including a hefty fine and possibly jail time for the owner of the company. Many owners of small businesses are now panicking because they can not afford such a big expense (80,000 pesos or more).
