On August 30, 2019, the “AGREEMENT amending the General Rules for the receipt of information on tax returns and the Collection of Federal Resources by the Credit Institutions” was published in the Official Gazette of the Credit Institutions through of which it is indicated in its FIRST article that the term for the beginning of the reception of information of fiscal declarations and the collection of foreign trade will be extended.
This new extension implies that as of November 25, 2019, the Electronic Payment of Foreign Trade (PECE) will replace the Customs Centralized Electronic Payment (PECA) permanently.
Due to the above, it is important to emphasize that the entry into force of the new payment system in foreign trade must be seen as a last chance for companies to internally implement an efficient payment system in which the customs agent and the importer are very well coordinated prior to importation of merchandise into the country.
