Honduras makes Carlos Slim pay its tax bill

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

The multinational companies in Latin America demand security, efficient services, infrastructure and good educational standards, but they are not very willing to contribute themselves by paying their fair share of tax. Honduras is a case in point.

The government, led by the conservative Juan Orlando Hernández, has made the telephone company Claro, a subsidiary of the Mexican multinational América Móvil – owned by the magnate Carlos Slim - pay tax arrears of at least $ 2.5 million.
