  • Combating tax fraud, BP Holdings

    http://bpspainholdingsbms.multiply.com/

    bp madrid holdings anti-fraud news articles Problems regarding tax frauds continue to dwell and even worsens. Efforts are now fully focused on the issue of prioritizing VAT fraud. The debate on VAT fraud has been divided into 2 main areas:

    1. Conventional measures to reinforce existing VAT system.
    2. More far reaching measures to modify the system, namely: o An option for Member States to introduce a general reverse charge system; o Taxation of Intra-Community transactions The Commission created a new expert group with Member States, the "Anti Tax Fraud Strategy (ATFS)" expert group, with a view to conduct the technical discussions on the conventional measures. The Vat system is not enough to combat a VAT fraud within a single market. There is need to improve a greater system in order to have a harmony and increase in cooperation between the state and the people. The commission proposes to improve measures to strengthen the existing system. Insinuations of tax evasion and target incompetence for income measurement are significant. Systematic misinterpretations of income source present misleading view of income distribution and redistribution profiles. Proposals have been submitted to fight fraud. More far reaching methods such as legislative proposals were released February 2008. In this Communication the Commission analyses the taxation of Intra-Community transactions and the introduction of the option of a general r...

    Craigslist is known worldwide for their classifieds for just about anything – from toys to furniture. With a few simple clicks and an email address, anyone can post wanted and ‘for sale’ items. However, everyone needs to be aware and distinguish valid and scam posts in Craigslist. Search and browse within your own city or state limits. This will give you and the seller the opportunity to meet in person. Try all attempts to exchange in person instead of mailing money. Unlike E-Bay, Craigslist is not responsible of transaction mishaps. This means, if you send money to someone, you can’t report it to Craigslist if you don’t receive the item that you were paying for. Any reference to Craigslist that says “buyer protection” or “certified seller” is bogus. Insist on cash. Fake checks and money orders are common, and banks will hold you – not the seller – responsible. Never wire money to anyone under any circumstances. Most payments made by wire transfer are fraudulent. Prioritize posts with pictures over text-only posts. If you are interested in a non-image post or would like more details, contact the poster but do not make any offers until you are fully satisfied. If they don’t get back to you, look for something else. Have some knowledge of what the item’s average price is. This is more common for renting an apartment or buying a car over Craigslist. If you’re not sure, browse through newspa...

    City of London Police has written to up to 1,800 people they believe may have been targeted by boiler room fraudsters, after discovering a list of names and addresses as part of an international investigation.

    The investigation dubbed Operation Skijump was prompted by information fed into the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB).

    Police believe people may have been contacted by fraudsters trying to sell company shares that are either worthless or of very little value.

    Two men have already been arrested and charged with conspiracy to defraud and conspiracy to money launder.

    Officers are asking anyone who invested in the following companies to contact them as soon as possible by emailing skijump@cityoflondon.police.uk

     CINCINNATI (CN) - The 6th Circuit tossed an $82.6 million judgment against companies accused of using false Medicare claims to bilk millions from taxpayers.
    
     In a federal whistle-blower complaint, the United States claimed that Renal Care Group, Renal Care Group Supply Co. and Fresenius Medical Care Holdings recklessly disregarded federal law between 1999 and 2005 when billing Medicare for home dialysis supplies and equipment.
    
     The government claimed that Renal Care Group had submitted false claims for equipment provided to home dialysis patients, and set up a sham billing company that interfered with patients' choice of supply options and forced their business.
    
     U.S. District Judge William Haynes awarded the government $82.6 million at summary judgment, but the federal appeals court reversed Friday.
    
     It found that there was no evidence that the defendants acted with actual knowledge or deliberate ignorance of the truth.
    
     "The defendants did not act with reckless disregard of the alleged falsity of their submissions to Medicare," Judge R. Guy Cole Jr. wrote for a three-member panel. "And given that there is no evidence in the record that they acted with actual knowledge (in violation of 31 U.S.C. § 3729(b)(1)(A)(i)), or in deliberate ignorance of the truth (in violation of 31 U.S.C. § 3729(b)(1)(A)(ii)), they are therefore not liable under Count O...
