Tax fraud by tobacco company
#1
Radio Sintonia:

Fraud of a tobacco company in the Canary Islands worth almost 30 million euros.

The Civil Guard of the Command of Las Palmas has completed on June 27, the instruction of a series of proceedings for the alleged authorship of a crime of fraud to the Public Treasury to detect that an important tobacco company, based in the Canary Islands, had applied during the last three years a tax rate of lower amount than it really should have been applied, constituting these facts a fraud against the Canary Islands Tax Agency.



Initiation and development of the investigation
The Civil Guard became aware in May 2022 when it received an anonymous complaint detailing the commission of an irregularity in the payment of taxes by a tobacco company in the Canary Islands, based in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Fraud
procedure The specific analysis of the taxes of the last three years led the Tax and Borders Section of the Port of Light, to verify how the aforementioned mercantile, during the period between January 2020 and March 2023, would have had an impact on its self-assessments of the tax on dark tobacco products, deliberately wrong by a lower tax rate than the one that really should have been applied.

This was based on the declaration of a so-called "specific" tax rate, which for the year 2023 is established at 11.10 euros per 1,000 black cigarettes sold, when in fact it should have applied the so-called "proportional" tax rate that for the year 2023 is established at 47 euros per 1,000 black cigarettes sold, all according to the provisions of the Order of May 9, 2011, which develops Law 1/2011, of January 21, on the tax on tobacco products and other tax measures.

In this sense, the detailed study of each of the periods investigated, it is estimated that an amount that could range between € 44.2 / 1000 black cigarettes sold, in the year 2020 and € 35.9 / 1000 black cigarettes sold, in the year 2023 was avoided.

With the practice described, the company stopped paying the public coffers of the Canary Islands the amount of 29,890,125.25 euros, carrying out by the Civil Guard the appropriate proceedings that were delivered in the Court of 1st Instance and Instruction ONE of those of Güimar (Santa Cruz de Tenerife).
