The natural resources specialist received 6.01mln pesos (US$321,000) from SAT in March, much more than the 4.2mln pesos it had originally anticipated.
The pay-out is part of Rose’s bid to reclaim around 16.5mln pesos (around US$880,000) in value added tax from SAT.
AIM-quoted Rose added it is still working on recovering the remaining 10.5mln pesos ($552,000) owed to it by SAT.
Encouraged by scale ...
“We are encouraged by the scale of the funds received back from the Mexican authorities,” said Rose’s chief executive Matthew Idiens.
“We continue to work on recovering the outstanding balance as we work on building our cash reserves ahead of the upcoming work programme.”
As Idiens alluded to, the windfall will help strengthening the firm’s cash reserves ahead of the grant of a permit to shoot 3D seismic on its oil property in Utah.
