In addition to this new development, restrictions will be placed on cash payments and transactions of over 10 million colombian pesos.

The information was made known by Luis Carlos Reyes, head of the colombian tax authority in a statement. Reyes told Semana, a local news outlet, that this would be one of the first proposals of the new president, Gustavo petro.
