Operatives of the special service found that the company, dealing with the export of agricultural products abroad during 2018-2019 conducted several fake financial transactions. Due to this commercial entity unreasonably obtained a tax credit, which afterwards has been compensated from the state budget.

During investigations at the office of the commercial entity, at the place of production and in the household and private cars of involved persons the law-enforcement officers seized stamps, documents and other material evidence of illegal activity.
