The anti-fraud inspectors have identified a fraud network made up by more than 100 economic units, and after the checks it was found a state budget loss of RON 21.4 million, representing value added tax and profit tax, the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) has announced on Friday.

The verified companies had in the accounting records documents attesting purchases of various goods or services from companies that only formally interacted with each other, which in fact do not have the capacity to deliver the goods or services declared by the beneficiary companies, ANAF informs.

“The people who have set up this mechanism to carry out illegal activities have set up ‘ghost’ companies on their behalf or other persons with a precarious financial situation, Romanian or Republic of Moldova citizens, who have accepted to act as associates and administrators with the companies and to open bank accounts on their behalf without being aware of the economic activity carried out,” ANAF further informs.

At the same time, the people who set up this mechanism took the illicit gains, either by withdrawing considerable sums of money from the banks, using grain or timber purchase invoices, or by withdrawing money directly from ATMs.
