In Greece, the Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE) fined Greek entrepreneurs and self-employed workers who administered fake invoices, for a total of 142 million euros, as reported by the Finance Ministry today.
The SDOE examined 25 cases that involved Kolonaki and Nea Filadelfia advertising agencies, among others. The businesses created faulty tax records. As reported by Kathimerini, over the last three years, a dermatologist based in the affluent Kolonaki neighborhood never circulated 1.4 million euros in receipts.
Various workers hid incomes from tax officials that reached up to 5 million euros. The Finance Ministry continues to face escalating disapproval at their methods of punishing small-scale debt evaders, over grand-scale tax criminals.
