Mexico will remain neutral. President López Obrador said Mexico will remain neutral regarding the conflict between Ukraine and Russia during his visit to Washington on July 12.  

Since the beginning of the conflict, the president said Mexico would respect article 89 of the Constitution where the principles of no intervention, self-determination of the people and peaceful resolution of controversies are established. Today, he assured he will maintain the same position when he meets with President Joe Biden.

Tax Record. Raquel Buenrostro, Head of the Tax Administration System (SAT) assured that the new Tax record administrative process is not a requirement emitted by the government. Buenrostro clarified that the only thing needed to verify payroll remuneration are name, company´s name, zip code and the federal registry of taxpayers (RFC).

Last week, President López Obrador asked the Tax Administration System (SAT) to inform the public about the new Tax record administrative process which is obligatory for taxpayers to file starting in 2023. Moreover, he said that if the process gets too complicated for tax payers, then, it should be eliminated.

Recently, the offices of the SAT in various entities of the country were full of people looking to file their Tax Record, a procedure needed to register their payroll receipts in the face of electronic invoicing 4.0.

On June 8, the SAT informed that the implementation of electronic invoicing 4.0 will be extended to 2023 and it will no longer be urgent to issue a Tax Record.

Former Japanese Prime Minister Murdered. President López Obrador lamented the death of Shinzo Abe, former Prime Minister of Japan. Shinzo Abe, 67 years old, died after being shot while giving a speech during parliamentary elections.
