Last week, the Treasury checks in the tourist regions of the country continued at an unrelenting pace.

5,968 companies across Greece were inspected from 3 to 9 August.

A total of 5,820 offences were found in 1,194 companies, which adds up to 20% of companies having committed tax abuse.

Most of it was found in the restaurant and retail business, and involves failure to issue receipts or receipts with inaccurate data.

Here are a few examples:

-       During a local event, a municipal company issued plain tickets instead of the legitimate ones containing tax information. The inspection found 1,600 cases where an offence was committed.

-       At a petrol station without a system tracking inflows and outflows, the inspectors seized data to make further checks.

-       A cash register was seized as the audited company had failed to declare it with the tax office.

-       Undeclared cash registers were seized in two catering companies as well, one in Attica, and the other in the Ileia region.
