Further VAT fraudsters in the prosecutor's office
The officers of the CBA Regional Office in Katowice have detained three individuals. The investigation pertains to the issuance of inaccurate invoices, which resulted in the depletion of tax receivables in the amount of 10 million PLN.
The CBA officers, jointly with the Regional Prosecutor's Office in Białystok, have been investigating into the issuance of inaccurate invoices and VAT extortion. Three men from the Pomeranian Voivodeship have been detained for this case, who acted as shell presidents of the boards of the economic entities involved in the practice.
The fiscal frauds took place in 2017. The investigators’ findings indicate that the companies dealing in metal products issued invoices which did not reflect actual economic events. The activities of the suspects resulted in the exposure of the State Treasury to a PLN 10 million VAT loss.
In the prosecutor’s office, the detainees have faced charges of attestation of an untruth in VAT invoices, participation in tax fraud, and money laundering.
The prosecutor has applied non-custodial preventive measures against the detainees.
So far, in the course of the investigation, charges have been presented against 8 individuals. The case is in progress.
