How not to fall under tax suspicion: dangerous schemes and mistakes of entrepreneurs

It is important to note that schemes differ from errors in the awareness of the commission, and therefore the consequences. Let’s start with the mistakes that managers face due to low awareness, lack of experience or excessive courage.

The desire to save on professionals

And, as a result, low competencies of accountants. Which, in most cases, leads to untimely or poor-quality reporting, incorrectly completed declarations and the provision of incorrect information. The tax office, in turn, may not miss such inaccuracies. As a result, cameral or field checks, as well as suspension of settlement accounts, in order to attract the attention of violators to the problem as soon as possible.

The sanctions that are imposed on the violator in case of late submission of a tax return are prescribed in article 119 of the Tax Code. In this case, the fine is set according to the deadline.

Neglect of the basic principles of the organization of the internal control system at enterprises

In particular, the lack of discretion in choosing a partner (law on the mandatory use of the internal control system at the enterprise). The ability to get on an unscrupulous counterparty is currently extremely high. For example, you entered into a transaction where you indicated the real amount of the transaction, and the counterparty, for its part, overestimated its value in order to reduce the amount of its taxes. In such a situation, there is every chance that the tax will come to you with questions, and it will be impossible to prove that you are right without proper examination.

The wrong choice of taxation entails the payment of excessive taxes by the entrepreneur and the maintenance of additional accounting if this is not necessary.

Patent system, USN, single agricultural tax – you can choose the optimal taxation system for your type of activity on the official website of the Federal Tax Service, which details the necessary conditions for this.

There is also a list of schemes that are best avoided in tax accounting. Since every year the ASK system more closely monitors the movement of company funds, many familiar “schemes” simply stop working.

Here are the most dangerous tax “tricks” to date.

Use of unscrupulous counterparties

The latest ASK VAT-3 system allows the tax officer to track absolutely all sales of goods. Since the system is connected to the banking system, companies that are dependent on each other and the movement of monetary amounts that you deduce from taxation immediately become visible. Accordingly, payments made to the “wrong” counterparty will have to be explained to the tax inspector.

Nominee Services

On the websites of recruiting companies quite often you can find the dream job “General Director without work experience”. However, this vacancy does not exist for talented students, but for the so-called dummies, who are nominee general directors of several companies at once. It is this factor that makes the scheme inoperative, since often the number of companies in one “CEO” can reach dozens. What can not but arouse suspicion of the tax service. This applies to both founders and mass addresses.

There are 144 more signs of one-day firms that are not officially disclosed by the tax authorities, but they can be found on the network as insider information.
