Investigative Committee reported on return of $87.5m unpaid taxes in Caucasus
The unpaid money was returned as a result of the investigation of several criminal cases.
Several enterprises of the alcohol industry in Kabardino-Balkaria deliberately avoided paying the full amount of the excise tax, the Investigative Committee (ICR) said in a statement. The unpaid money in the amount of 5.1 billion rubles ($87.5m) was returned as a result of the investigation of several criminal cases.
The Investigative Committee reported that of these funds the enterprise "Antares" owed the budget 3.8 billion rubles. Against its manager, Ruslan Kankulov, a criminal case was initiated under part 2 of Art. 199 of the Criminal Code (Evasion of Payment of Taxes from the organization by including knowingly false information in the tax declaration committed in a particularly large amount).
As a result of the investigation, the state got back 2.9 billion rubles. At the same time, the accounts of the company were arrested. The arrest was also imposed on the private vehicle fleet of the enterprise manager. The case materials were sent to the court by investigators.
Similar criminal cases were brought against a number of other managers of the alcohol industry: head of Alco-Light LLC Dashuev Ruslan, Rus-Alka LLC of Berezgov Islam, and Kalmykov Aslanbi, the head of the Chegemsky Vinpischeprom LLC.
