Tax specialists jointly with Main Directorate of the SFS in Zaporizhzhia region exposed the understatement of taxes at realization of imported vehicles to the territory of Ukraine.

To minimize taxes, the company carried out a fictitious distribution of VAT through the sale of vehicles to VAT payers who are involved in criminal proceedings. Tax invoices for car sales were issued without determining the VIN codes for impossibility of identifying the vehicle. However, in fact, the company sold them to individuals – non-payers of the VAT.

As a result of scheme, the company-importer of vehicles illegally executed operations for the sale of cars and formation of a value added tax credit, which is a socially dangerous act that led to budget losses totaling more than 20 million UAH.

These facts are investigated in the framework of criminal proceeding on the grounds of criminal offenses under Part 1 Article 205-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
