Korchma Taras Bulba chain of restaurants is due $11.4m to budget
Owner of the restaurants chain Yury Beloyvan was accused of non-payment of taxes.
The Main Investigation Office of the ICR of the Russian Federation in Moscow charged the creator of the restaurant chain of Ukrainian cuisine Korchma Taras Bulba, Yury Beloyvan, with the tax evasion on an especially large scale (item (b), part 2 of Art. 199 of the Criminal Code), Rosbalt reports. Now the businessman is under a written undertaking not to leave the place.
According to the investigation, in the period from 2011 to 2014 Beloyvan did not indicate the real amounts of income in the tax returns and understated the tax base for a total of 650 million rubles ($11.4 m).
The beginning of criminal proceedings became known in late 2016. Then the law enforcers conducted 42 searches in the establishments and the place of residence of the network's management, computer equipment and large sums of money, as well as documents were seized. Initially, the damage inflicted on the state was reported in the amount of 112 million rubles ($1.9 m).
Prior to this, tax officials estimated the restaurateur’s arrears at unprecedented 1 billion rubles ($17.5 m).
As one of the market representatives told Dengi (Money) magazine, Beloyvan violated the unspoken rules of the industry. "Tax claims in public catering are a common thing: tax specialists understand that we have double bookkeeping, we understand that they understand, and when we are presented with small amounts, we pay them without going into details", he said. But since Beloyvan was confident in his bookkeeping, he strongly refused to pay. This caused new checks and new debts.
The Korchma Taras Bulba chain was founded in 1999. It includes 18 establishments in Moscow and Moscow region, as well as restaurants in Kiev and New York.
Earlier, The Telegraph circulated this information. According to the publication, Patrushev brought 400 kg of flour, with which cocaine discovered in the Russian embassy in Argentina had been replaced, on his plane to Moscow.
Moscow Vice Mayor Marat Khusnullin is one of the most powerful people in the Moscow City Hall. He controls the construction market and promotes business interests of his entourage. People say that the construction market is controlled by the so-called Tatar mafia. However, it is simply Khusnullin’s family.
A criminal case under part 3 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code has been initiated against two officers of the Dagestan MIA Criminal Investigation Department. It was previously reported about the detention of Head of the Dagestan MIA Criminal Investigation Department Organized Crime Investigation Division, Colonel Khaybula Ibnukhadzharov.
