Alexey Khotin cheated with reporting
Employees of the Main Investigation Department of the TFR in Moscow began a pre-investigation check on the fact of tax evasion on an especially large scale (clause “b” of part 2 of article 199 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) by the former management of MTZ Rubin. The amount of claims is about 1 billion rubles. This was reported by Kommersant on Thursday.
The Moscow television plant “Rubin” curtailed its activities in 1999, in its place was the shopping center “Gorbushkin Dvor” for the sale of consumer electronics, owned by the ex-owner of the bank “Ugra” Alexey Khotin.
According to law enforcement officers, a large arrears arose due to the fact that the owner of MTZ “Rubin” (Khotin – approx.) For two years, entered into tax reporting false information about maintenance and repair work allegedly performed by various companies on the maintenance and repair of pavilions leased to Shopping center “Gorbushkin Dvor”
According to the tax audit submitted to the investigating authorities, in 2015-2017 MTZ Rubin signed contracts with 11 companies (LLC Prokbyt, Construction Industry, Stroy Trend, Spetsstroyproekt, etc.). These companies undertook to supply the shopping center with building materials, as well as perform various construction, installation and finishing works. However, none of these companies, which had in its staff no more than one employee represented by the general director, did not provide any services to MTZ Rubin. As the inspectors found out, for two years only current repairs were carried out on the territory of the shopping center by the forces of Eco Engservice LLC.
Therefore, the Federal Tax Service considered fictitious data on payment for the services of these 11 companies, which MTZ Rubin included in its tax reporting. In total, according to the calculations of the Federal Tax Service, the arrears in corporate income tax and value added tax amounted to over 900 million rubles.
