Nation’s Provider of Cash


In its role as the Nation’s cash provider and oversight agent, BCCR has created a service to speed up tax collection through SINPE. This is useful for both the Government and BCCR, since funds may be credited in a safe and speedy manner.


The Tax Information and Liquidation Service (Information and Liquidation Service, ILI) was launched in 2001. This service is intended for the Government, BCCR, and entities authorized to collect taxes, and it speeds up the process of liquidating funds received with the forms submitted by citizens when paying their taxes.


This service has not only improved fund movement from the various entities to the Government and BCCR from taxes collected, but it has also allowed authorities to obtain truthful and timely information to facilitate decision-making.
