How much does La Tahona Golf Club save thanks to the government?

Exempt taxes correspond to the global tariff rate, VAT, consular rate, automated services rate and service rates, and include purchases of ball


Exempt taxes correspond to the global tariff rate, VAT, consular rate, automated services rate and service rates, and include purchases of balls, floor coverings and carpets.

The case of La Tahona Golf Club was mentioned in the Chamber of Deputies in May 2021, when the Minister of Economy, Azucena Arbeleche, was called to the courtroom to discuss tax exemptions. During the debate, the deputy of Cabildo Abierto Álvaro Perrone was critical of certain government resolutions.

The legislator stressed that they were not opposed to tax exemptions, but proposed to discuss the underlying issue.

In that room call, Perrone questioned the measure and affirmed that the exemptions in theory aim at job creation, but that he was convinced that there are exemptions that do not directly aim at the creation of jobs and that are used in other matters. Let’s give an example, he said, “I have in my possession a resolution on a company where we are seeing that the important issues are not here, because here there is an exemption for the importation of golf balls. Who cares about this? It does not reach the most needy”

It should be noted that in just over a year there have been four tax exemptions for the La Tahona Golf Club, amounting to a profit of 60,000 dollars.

We will have to wait for what is argued from the government to justify the need to grant such a benefit to a group that does not seem to be so needy.
