According to the detail, in 2017 the company entered the country a total of 17 quadricycles, 8 jet skis and two motorcycles in two destinations, stating that the total value of the merchandise imported from the United States was $149,289.68.

In other words, the amount declared in our country was 64% of the real price.

In 2017 there was no significant gap in the exchange market, therefore the under-invoicing of international trade operations was not aimed at taking advantage of the access to foreign currency at profitable prices, but rather it is presumed that the intention was to evade the payment of import duties . But that under-invoicing of almost 65 thousand dollars, when calculating the fine, could become a figure 25 times higher: they want to charge Jegs SA no less than 1,650,429.40 dollars.
