'Printing house of blank invoices' for PLN 23 million
Nearly 1,500 invoices for up to PLN 23 million - another person involved in a criminal practice detained by the CBA.
Officers of the CBA Regional Office in Warsaw have detained another entrepreneur in the ongoing investigation of the so-called printing house of blank invoices. The investigation has been carried out under the supervision of the District Prosecutor's Office in Warsaw. The suspect, detained in the Mazovian voivodeship in connection with the entering of inaccurate VAT invoices in her purchase registers, is charged with providing an untruth in the invoices. For the crime committed, in addition to severe financial penalties, she faces up to eight years in prison. The prosecutor applied non-custodial preventive measures against the detainee.
In the course of the proceedings, the officers retrieved accounting and tax documentation of the entities that used blank invoices.
The criminal practice consisted in using invoices for fictitious transactions to reduce tax dues, which the suspects - carrying out business activities - should pay to relevant tax offices. The analysis of the evidence gathered confirms that the scale of issuing unreliable VAT invoices amounts to tens of millions of zlotys and the blank invoices were received by over a dozen entrepreneurs.
It is yet another operation of the CBA Regional Office in Warsaw and the Regional Public Prosecutor's Office in Warsaw in this case. The investigation has already brought charges against over a dozen persons. Further detentions may take place.
