Tax Fraud and Money Laundering in Major Companies: Convictions and Sentences

  • Several Danish persons (referred to as T1-T7) were charged with multiple serious violations of tax laws
  • The persons were the owners, directors or contributors of 14 main companies, and were prosecuted for issuing and processing fictitious invoices relating to the sale of goods and work services from a number of temp agencies, which the defendants also controlled, and not or incorrectly reporting VAT or withholding tax
  • They denied guilt but were found guilty by the court
  • T1 was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison, a fine, and disqualification
  • T2 was sentenced to 4 years in prison and disqualification
  • T3, T4, T5, T6, and T7 were also sentenced with varying penalties
  • T3, T6, and T7 appealed the court’s decision, but the appeals were mostly rejected
  • The Supreme Court was to decide on the issue of additional fines for the defendants based on the amount they evaded
