(ANSA) – PERUGIA, 04 AUGUST – The finance police has implemented a preventive seizure decree, issued by the investigating magistrate, at the request of the Perugia prosecutor, of non-existent tax credits for an amount of about 80 million euros, and of money, real estate and corporate assets for an amount of over 3 million, for an alleged scam linked to the Facade Bonus. The seizure was ordered against ten companies and 53 natural persons – currently subject to preliminary investigations for the issue of invoices for non-existent transactions, fraud against public bodies, self-laundering and administrative offenses – who would have generated and marketed fictitious credit tax relating to the tax relief introduced by the Government. The seizure constitutes the epilogue of an articulated investigative activity which, in recent months, had already made it possible to subject more than 9 million fictitious credits to a company operating in the business consultancy sector to preventive seizure.

The examination of the transactions and of the data entered in the web platform for the assignment of credits and the subsequent investigations, conducted through the interrogation of databases, the analysis of reports for suspicious transactions, banking, accounting and administrative documentation and the assessment of the structures companies have highlighted – explains the prosecutor – fiscal, economic and financial inconsistencies such as to be considered “concrete and sufficient” the indications of the existence of a structured fraudulent mechanism, branched throughout the national territory.

In detail, the credits, artfully created through the false attestation of works never carried out, would have been subject to repeated assignments to individuals, often burdened with criminal records and with limited income, or to companies without even the slightest corporate structure and operations. In part, they would have been “monetised” with financial intermediaries, generating flows of money diverted to third-party companies, also based abroad, or self-laundered, in order to conceal their illicit origin.
