So for the substance of tax interests, this rule is written in the dashboard that must load the bank for transaction shelters, etc. This is to increase effectiveness, so we ask to hold a digital dashboard so we can monitor how many do he operate, and anywhere, “he said.

So this will also be material given the transition period, both tariffs and the limit of rental transportation vehicles, “he concluded.
