Sehr geehrte / Sehr geehrter Europäisches Amt für Betrugsbekämpfung,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
I know a person that is trying to evoid tax within two EU countries. British citizen living in Czech Republic, longterm, more than 20 years living in Prague. He claims to czech financial authorities that he pays tax in UK but according to law he is tax resident in CZ. The result is that he doesn´t pay tax anywhere. In UK he sais to the authorities that he pays in CZ.
Therefore I am asking how does british and czech cooperation work and to which EU-authority is it possible to send details about this case. Not only that there is obviously tax invasion in both countries but also this person has illegal saving in Swissland and piece by piece is trying to legalise these money in EU. Its also important to say that this person claims openly high living costs but doesn´t have official income since more than 10 years.
So please tell me which EU-authorities are able to investigate such a case. Authorities in Czech republic seem to ignore it, probably they are not able to see "whole picture".
Thank you for replying soon.
Mit freundlichem Gruß,
Dear Ms Jana Volhejnová,
Thank you for your request of 28 February 2019, with which you ask OLAF to
tell you which EU-authorities are able to investigate the case of a person
that is trying to avoid tax within two EU countries. You send your request
via “asktheeu” with the subject “access to documents Anfrage – Questions
who to contact.
First, do I understand correctly, that your request is not an access to
document request? You are not mentioning any concrete documents to which
you wish access.
Also, the OLAF is not competent to investigate national tax frauds. It has
only competence to investigate irregularities detrimental to the financial
interests of the EU itself.
However, if you wish to report the irregularity you are mentioning to
OLAF, I invite you to send your information with as much details as
possible to OLAF with relevant information of fraud or other serious
irregularities with a potentially negative impact for EU public funds,
whether EU revenue, expenditure or assets held by the EU institutions.
You can find all the information how to report fraud to OLAF on its
website by following this link:
