Federation of Small Shopkeepers (Fenapeco) president Apolinar Leyba Javier has expressed his support for the general strike across the country on Thursday 30 and Friday 31 January, in protest against the obligation to install tax printers.
He questioned the credibility of the Tax Office (DGII) promise that it would not insist on the installation of the printers for small businesses with annual sales under RD$7.8 million, or purchases below RD$30 million, describing this as “a trick by the tax authorities.”
Leyba Javier rejected the DGII initiative, saying it was an impossible expense for small businesses which could not afford the printers.
He also asked for better transparency in assigning permits to import agricultural products under the DR-CAFTA trade agreement, claiming that the current system was irregularly managed.
