In the first six months of this year, 91 companies were identified as “phantom” or “money laundering”.
That is 54 percent more compared to the same period in 2017, Dragana Markovic, Director of the Tax Administration stated for the “Blic” daily. As she states, in the first six months of this year 44 criminal charges were filed against such companies that helped regular business entities in performing criminal offenses, thus embezzling a total of RSD847 million in taxes.
The Tax Administration, Markovic explains, has formed a special department for defaulters’ risk groups and a certain number of projects targeted against underground economy have been foreseen in cooperation with other state authorities.
