In Ukraine, a scheme was exposed, which was checked by the director and accountant of the local representative office of the world famous taxi brand. As a result, the company evaded UAH 52 million in taxes.
This was reported by the Economic Security Bureau (BEB). The name of the company is not disclosed, the description is similar to two international taxi brands operating in Ukraine – Uber and Bolt.
According to the materials of the investigation, the local management of the company in Ukraine illegally cashed out the funds that the foreign “parent” company sent to the country. According to the purpose, the money was allocated for the maintenance of the taxi service representative office and for paying for the work of partner drivers.
“The director and chief accountant of the company organized a scheme according to which payments were made to the accounts of a number of sole proprietors as payment for non-existent “information and intermediary services”. This made it possible to avoid paying taxes to the state budget in full. The established amount of evasion is UAH 52 million,” – said in the BEB.
The investigation continues. Currently, detectives are establishing all the circumstances of the case, as well as compiling a complete list of persons involved in the tax evasion scheme.
As GLOBAL HAPPENINGS reported, earlier BEB found that a well-known Ukrainian bank was hiding money from the tax authorities for the gambling business. This led to tax evasion of UAH 400 million.
