Importers of second-hand cars from EU deny state budget of EUR 29 million

Newsroom 19/08/2016 | 13:51

Checks conducted by National Tax Authority (ANAF) inspectors between April-June 2016 on 200 companies that purchased used cars from the European Union worth EUR 224 million revealed that some of them caused losses to the tune of EUR 29.3 million to the state budget.

According to the preliminary results of the Xenon operation, only 19 of the companies investigated acted lawfully. Investigations are still ongoing at 25 companies who lack managers, or need further checks.

ANAF reported that 67 companies, representing 30 percent of the total, were not found at the social headquarters they declared. The inspectors initiated legal proceedings against them.

The remaining companies all applied erroneously the VAT margin scheme on sales to individuals, which caused damages estimated up until now at RON 131 million (EUR 29.3).
