(ANSA) - Ascoli Piceno, August 9 - Italian police on
Thursday said they had broken up a 100-million-euro-plus
tax-evasion scheme and pressed charges against 32 people accused
of using false invoices to avoid paying taxes.
According to a local unit of the finance police, the scheme
dated from 2007 to 2011 and involved producers of leather goods,
accessories for shoe production and plastics firms in the
central Italian provinces of Macerata and Fermo.
Police said that through a "merry-go-round" scheme which
involved bankrupt companies, figurehead representatives -
including some in foreign countries - sales between ghost
companies and fake companies in San Marino, the accused avoided
declaring some 82 million euros in income and evaded some 31
million euros in VAT.
Assets, including real-estate, cars and cash in bank
accounts, worth about 33 million euros were seized.
Police said the charged people had already been arrested in
the past for operating similar scams, which involved
near-bankrupt, or already bankrupt, companies emitting invoices
to "paper companies" in foreign jurisdictions which subsequently
provided false papers regarding VAT payments.
