Detects SAT 600 thousand “ghost” companies.

Recently the news that the Tax Administration Service (SAT) identified 600 thousand risky companies that could be performing simulated billing operations to evade the Treasury was released.
In this sense, Samuel Arturo Magaña Espinosa, Central Administrator of Planning and Programming of Federal Tax Audit, reported that they have also detected 13 thousand partners or shareholders of these companies denominated as “facades or ghosts”. In addition, he pointed out that these companies belong to different sectors such as marketers, media, soccer, among others; and even, among the partners of these companies, politically exposed persons have been identified, and people already deceased have been discovered in the workplaces.
In this case, we are talking about the SAT discovering of a new aggressive tax simulation scheme that taxpayers are using to avoid the payment of income tax (ISR), through invoicing companies of simulated operations, as well as participating borrowers, as partners of these companies.
In the identified scheme, the payment companies are involved, which avoid the whole of the contributions to their position, applying for their benefit the credit to the salary, deductions and compensations.
It has been identified that partners, shareholders, legal representatives, among others of large companies, are involved in the use of this scheme, to whom they have been invited to correct their fiscal situation voluntarily and avoid being subject to the process for the possible commission of a crime.
He estimated that the amount of apocryphal invoicing to avoid taxes amounts to two billion pesos annually.
In the first identified case of a taxpayer who used this scheme, he was invited to correct his fiscal situation voluntarily and to pay more than 161 million pesos corresponding to the ISR of five fiscal years, which made it possible to conclude the criminal procedure.
