MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s biggest retailer, Walmart de Mexico, said on Monday that it had paid 8.08 billion pesos ($358 million) to Mexican tax authorities in relation to its sale of a restaurant division and other matters.
The company, commonly known as Walmex, has faced a growing tax liability from the 2014 sale of its Vips restaurant division to Mexican restaurant company Alsea.
