The Moscow Regional Main Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia is pursuing a probe on the fact of evasion by Saks Toys LLC of taxes on a particularly large scale (Paragraphs A and B of Part 2 of Article 199 of the Criminal Code of Russia).
The investigation revealed that, from 2015 to 2016, the CEO of the company, which is the largest toy distributor, had evaded the payment of value-added tax and income tax in his financial and business operations. Taking into account penalties and fines accrued by the tax authority, the total debt to the state amounted to more than 847 million rubles.
Due to the principled stance of the investigator and active implementation of the whole complex of investigative actions, the CEO of Saks Toys LLC decided to fully repay the value-added tax and income tax debts, as well as the penalties and fines in the total amount of more than 847 million rubles.
Given these circumstances, the probe will be closed in the near future due to the full compensation for the damage caused to the budget of the Russian Federation.
