Did you know that the caiman needle is one of eleven species of crocodiles that inhabit the Americas? And not only that! Six of them are also found in Colombia, covering coastal areas of the Pacific and the Caribbean.
At the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century, due to constant hunting in national territory, the Caiman aguja became extinct both in coastal areas of the Caribbean and the inter-Andean valleys, as well as in insular zones, bringing the species to critical levels. Therefore, today, it is catalogued as “vulnerable” in the red list of the International Union for Conservation of Nature – IUCN.
Perhaps the most difficult task was to find arguments so that other inhabitants of the region would decide to stop hunting this animal and, furthermore, to generate conditions for its development. With this need, a forceful discourse began to be used. This species helps to oxygenate the water bodies with its coming and going, keeping the canals clean. Likewise, because they have a slow metabolism, they produce amino acids (organic compounds) that combine to form proteins and provide this “fertilizer” to the system, generating food that the fish consume in the first stages of life.

To overcome that apparent weakness, on November 20, Real Madrid and Providence signed a partial amendment to the contract of 10 days earlier in which the two Cayman Islands companies guaranteed the club payment of 175 million euros through a letter of credit issued by a Citibank branch in Tampa, Florida.
In addition to reputational problems, the club faced other, more onerous risks, fiscal ones. “Given this structure, easily verifiable by the Tax Agency, the exemption from withholding on Real Madrid’s payments to PQ VII SARL, because it is a company resident in the EU, will almost certainly be questioned by the Tax Agency, which will reclassify the payments considering the beneficial owner, in this case, a tax haven, and therefore forcing Real Madrid to withhold 24% on the payments to Providence,” warned the club’s financial director on October 30.
But there is a second risk beyond taxation, explains the CFO: the Treasury could deny the 25% corporate tax deduction on the remuneration paid by the club to the fund, which the latter considers an expense. Some 15 million euros for the 65 million euros of interest mentioned above, but that could be much more if the tax authorities were to make an “extreme and asymmetrical interpretation” and also question the deduction of the 200 million euros that Real Madrid has to pay back to Providence.
