The telephony, internet and pay TV operator Claro, has a $ 123 million debt to the Internal Revenue Service (SRI for its Spanish acronym), according to the Specialized Chamber for the Tax Litigation of the National Court of Justice of Ecuador.
This debt corresponds to the period between 2003 and 2006.
Last year the company paid to the tax authority about 113.5 million dollars for debts between 2003 and 2006.
But the government argued that the Mexican company still has a balance with the state treasury, and the Court authorized its collection.
The debt also includes an outlay of $ 29 million dollars to pay profits to the employees in the same period.
