  • In order to secure the company against a VAT fraud (so called “VAT carousels frauds”), we implement procedures that:
    • enable verification of suppliers and recipients aimed at avoidance of unconscious establishing cooperation with entities involved in tax frauds,
    • ensure a secure way to establish trade relations and carry out safe transactions involving any types of commodities,
    • ensure gathering of evidence confirming taxpayer's acting in good faith, which are of key importance in ruling in the “ VAT carousel frauds” cases by courts.
  • We verify potential suppliers and recipients by analysing financial and legal data available in public and commercial information sources (verification is carried out without knowledge and without involvement of the tested entity); upon this we assess the potential risk of entering into trade transactions with this entity and provide relevant recommendations in this regard.
  • We assess the business model of commercial cooperation with suppliers or recipients, identifying characteristics typical for transactions aimed at VAT frauds.

Our expertise results from winning VAT fraud cases, where the amounts of exposure threatened the existence  of the businesses we represented. In all these cases implementation of procedures documenting the taxpayer's acting in good faith were crucial.

Our professional experience also includes many years of effective auditing of businesses in public and commercial information sources, including auditing for the purposes of applying regulations on Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT).
