I, for one, have always been receptive to the idea that the RD has got to get their act together if they ever expect to move into the 21st century, but there are some things that defy logic.
One of those things is the new rules concerning the ITBIS monthly reporting and vendors getting their NCF (Numero de Comprobante Fiscal) to register their sales.
This whole thing with the NCF numbers is the most asinine thing I've ever seen in my life. And no one has answers.
It's the same with dealing with the ITBIS monthly forms.
They want me to detail every bank transaction I do every month? Are they nuts?! Can you imagine Plaza Lama filling out one of those?
Has anyone seen the supermercados assigning a NCF number to every reciept thier cash registers are printing?
I'm supposed to get a NCF number from everyone I do business with? Puleeese..
For example, My company does business with companies in the states, so my invoices are in dollars. Supposedly, you can't do that. Your invoices have to be in pesos. I'm going to send an invoice to a company in the states in pesos? And if I buy something from a company in the states, they have to give me a NCF number for the transaction?
I buy Forms from Customs, but do you think Customs can give me a NCF number for that sale? Of course not.
My truck has 2 flat tires. Am I supposed to get a NCF from the illiterate warm body that comes to fix them?
Or the guy from the street that came to fix my forklift.. He looks at me like I'm nuts if I ask him for a NCF number.
And who the **** is going to review all of this information?
Are there going to be armies of public employees mulling over all of these forms to make sure everyone is paying their dues?
This has got the be the stupidest thing any gov't. has ever done. We have gone from one extreme to another. All that's going to happen is people are either going to refuse 'en masse' to fill these things
out, or they're going to fill them out wrong.
All this is going to do is drive more businesses off the books..
