Businessman will be judged for millions of tax debts in Kurgan
In Kurgan, proceedings against tax evader businessman are about to begin.
Kurgan businessman is accused of tax evasion. According to investigation, the Director General of Zauralye Trading Company LLC owed the State more than 5.5 million rubles of taxes for 2015.
As the regional ICR has reported, the Director General of Zauralye TC Limited Liability Company, specializing in wholesale trade of food products and lumber, is charged under part 1 of Art. 199 of the Russian Criminal Code (Evasion from paying taxes and fees collectible from organisations by way of including into the tax declaration or such documents wittingly false data, committed on a large scale).
During the investigation, law enforcement agencies have found that the chief executive indicated knowingly false information in the tax returns for VAT for the 3rd quarter of last year. Thus, he was able to deliberately hide more than 5.5 million rubles from taxation. Meanwhile, the ratio of non-calculated tax payable to the budget amounted to almost 99.95%.
Investigating authorities have gathered enough evidence to support the crime committed by the businessman. In this regard, all the investigation materials and confirmed indictment have been referred to the court for further consideration on the merits.
The prosecution has replaced life sentence for Lieutenant of the Federal Security Service (FSB) Aleksey Korotkov with 24 years behind bars in exchange for his support to the investigation: in particular, exposure of other gang’s members who had been dealing with murders of businessmen and random people for more than 10 years.
