Porto Empedocle, discovery of a maxi-escape on the online sale of tires

The officials of the Customs and Monopoly Excise Agency of the Porto Empedocle (Agrigento) office, during a tax check carried out in the context of intra-community trade, discovered a VAT fraud of over 170,000 euros, which would have been carried out by a company operating in the online tire sales sector. “The commercial operator – says Adm -, through the use of artificial accounting mechanisms, omitted to charge VAT to the final consumer, managing to sell the goods at competitive prices such as to create a distortion of the market to the detriment of the correct operators . The control operation resulted from a preventive risk analysis activity, carried out by the officials of the regional anti-fraud operating group of the territorial management – Sicily, which allowed a targeted intervention, thanks also to the synergistic involvement of the Sicilian customs offices ».
