“During the study of the activities of these business entities, the BEB detectives established the absence of export transactions, information on the sale of goods in accounting and tax records, and their absence in warehouses.

Some of their fictitious managers are persons who do not have a permanent place of residence, or have nothing to do with the activities of the mentioned companies. Several companies that do not actually provide premises for rent, although companies with fictitious activities are registered at their addresses. Such cases are not isolated. All this indicates the fictitiousness of the financial and economic activities of enterprises that violate the legislation,” – emphasized the BEB.
Pre-trial investigations in criminal proceedings on the grounds of the offense provided for in Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (Empropriation, waste of property or taking possession of it by abuse of official position) are ongoing.
