UK proposes to increase criminal penalties for tax crimes

UK proposes to increase criminal penalties for tax crimes

The Investigative Committee proposes to toughen criminal liability for individuals for non-payment of taxes. Now such cases can be closed after the expiration of the statute of limitations, while legal entities can be brought to justice within ten years.

As they write "News”, Deputy Chairman of the Investigative Committee, Colonel-General of Justice Elena Leonenko told about such plans in an interview to the newspaper. In just ten years of the department's work, about 208 billion rubles have returned to the country's budget. However, just because of tax crimes, the number of which has increased by 2011 times since 1,5, the country has lost about 450 billion rubles. In recent years, it has been possible to recover about half of this amount.

As Elena Leonenko noted, when a large amount of taxes is evaded, the taxable base is most often distorted, property is hidden. And if a legal entity evades taxes, then it can be brought to justice after ten years. And in the case of individual entrepreneurs and individuals, the limitation period is only two years, while the amount of damage to the state does not matter. Because of this, this category of taxpayers often escapes punishment.

The IRS sends materials to the UK only two months after tax evasion. During this time, an attacker can destroy most of the property and documents.
