Following the monitoring of community cross-border trade in H1 2008, the Financial Guard identified 208 "ghost-companies" used in VAT-dodging schemes, reveals data supplied by the National Tax Administration Agency (ANAF).
After a decline in VAT collections in the first part of 2007, just short after Romania's EU accession, and following signals showing an escalation of VAT and profit tax avoidance, the Financial Guard proceeded as of January 2008 to the monitoring of commodity traffic across community borders.
 
According to the tax authority, apart from ghost-company networks, other schemes used by the tax-dodgers were non-admitting transactions (67 cases), the record in acquisition accompanying documents of fictitious beneficiaries, the deliberate erroneous filling in of shipment documents.
Over the period of reference, the Financial Guard monitored some 5,400 intra-community commercial operations, checked 4,200 companies, notifying the prosecuting authorities in 209 cases and calculating a prejudice of 223,000 lei, especially in VAT default.
