The Guardia di Finanza of Porto Recanati (Macerata) has discovered a VAT tax fraud as part of an online trade of motorcycles and spare parts involving a young motorcyclist from the province of Ancona, a figurehead and some compliant companies. At the Ancona house, thanks to the use of a canine unit, "Cashdog", the sum of 56,905 euros in cash was seized divided into bribes hidden in the house. According to the investigators, the activity would have produced undeclared revenues for over 10,150,000 euros and evaded VAT for 5,170,000 euros.
Three people reported for tax crimes; Eight other subjects are accused of administrative violations for having transferred sums above the permitted thresholds for about 110 thousand euros. The investigations, coordinated by the Ancona Public Prosecutor's Office, were also carried out by the Economic and Financial Police Unit of Macerata with the help of a technical consultant appointed by the judicial authority.
The creator of the maxi tax evasion, according to the prosecution, would be the motorcyclist. The alleged figurehead, formerly resident at the Hotel House in Porto Recanati, instead has a police record for counterfeiting clothing. The turnover has grown through commercial operations in several countries of Europe (Belgium, Spain, Germany, Holland, England, San Marino) and Italy, promoted through websites and social profiles, in the absence of tax returns. The lack of minimum entrepreneurial requirements on the part of the owner led investigators to believe that the Senegalese was a figurehead and that the activity was in fact carried out by another. The operational base was a unit used as a warehouse and office, not declared to the Treasury, managed by the motorcyclist in the Ancona countryside. The searches would have revealed elements to attribute to him the actual ownership of the company. He allegedly used the VAT number of the Senegalese and another company to buy motorcycles and spare parts from Community suppliers and sell them to individuals and businesses at advantageous prices, thanks to the VAT evaded. In addition to causing considerable damage to the exchequer, the activity also led to a serious disturbance of the market and competition.
