The director general of the Tax Office calls for up to ten years to extend the statute of limitations for tax fraud

José María Meseguer, director general of the Tax Office has advocated extending to ten years the statute of limitations for tax fraud in cases of "major violators"

Meseguer was speaking after intervening in the eighteenth Tax Conference organized by the Professional Association of Tax Advisers of Valencia, held in Benicàssim (Castellón).

The CEO has gone through a series of measures to combat fraud in Spain bags, among which is the "special care and monitoring" to be made from football clubs, who will not give "any facility in fulfilling their obligations to the Inland Revenue. " Apart from the various campaigns to be carried out, Meseguer has referred to the statute of limitations for tax fraud and has said that time is "very tight".

Thus, considered that the ten years that are set for the prescription in some European countries and the U.S. would be appropriate also for Spain, and that a period of seven years should be the minimum, due to the complexity of these issues.

He has also spoken about the companies listed on the Ibex 35 and do not pay corporate tax, and assured that it "deserves a thorough review." In terms of 2011 revenue from the fight against fraud, Meseguer has said he will remain the figures of 2010, the year that raised 10,000 million euros. In this regard he pointed out that from 2005 to 2011 were entered into this same concept to EUR 50,000 million.

Thus, referring to downsizing in the tax, which will have 28,000 employees to have 25,000, largely due to retirement will not be covered, has said it is "common sense who invest in fighting fraud because it brings great benefits, "but" has not been. " This "forces us to be more effective", and "despite the reduction in the template, you may carry out new campaigns to combat fraud," he added.
