ExxonMobil says unaware of ‘clerical error’ in declaration to GRA


See below the full statement issued by ExxonMobil Guyana:

ExxonMobil Guyana Limited (EMGL) learnt from the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) of a clerical error in a Customs declaration filed by our former broker in late 2023.

EMGL did not compose the erroneous declaration, nor were we aware of this clerical error when the declaration was filed.

However, this error did not give rise to any financial loss to the GRA nor the Government of Guyana.

Furthermore, it is important to note that the information included in Customs declarations is separate from, and not used for, the calculation of cost recovery or tax statements, and therefore this error has had no impact in those areas either. EMGL has cooperated fully with the GRA in its investigation, including providing the agency with corrected information.

We are dedicated to ethical practices, ensuring accuracy in all submissions; mistakes are promptly corrected when uncovered. Our commitment to continuous improvement is reflected in our proactive steps to prevent similar errors which has included a fulsome review of the work process with a new customs broker.
