The AEAT will be dedicated in 2011 to pursue the underground economy

Economy / Fiscal.- Treasury collects 8,200 million for fraud control until October, 25% more
Electricity consumption, use of credit cards and movements of more than 3,000 euros, new anti-fraud tools

   Hacienda raised 8,200 million euros during the first ten months of the year for the fight against fraud, which represents an increase of 25% compared to the figure recorded in the same period of 2009, according to the director of the Tax Agency ( AEAT), Juan Manuel López Carbajo.
   These 8,200 million euros already exceed the amount collected in the whole of 2009, which stood at 8,119 million euros. As indicated by López Carbajo, this income is derived, especially, from a greater contribution of inspection work on large taxpayers. In fact, the average debt raised amounts to about 175,000 euros.
   In an informative breakfast organized by the Association of Economic Information Journalists (APIE), López Carbajo pointed out that the direct collection for control actions amounted to 6.9 billion, 22% more, while the collection for the induced effect -regulations voluntary-, was 1,300 million euros, 40% more than in 2009.
Revenues from control actions since 2005 amounted to 43,800 million euros, a figure that the general director of the Tax Agency described as "very respectable", even more so in the current financial circumstances.
   In addition, Lopez Carbajo has assured that the investigations on the circulation of false notes of 500 euros generated an income of 1.060 million euros to the body dependent of the Ministry of Economy and Finance.
   Also, the general director of the AEAT has advanced that the monitoring of the 500 euros banknotes is a field of investigation "that still has route" in the view that the debt opened continues to give "good results".
   On the other hand, Lopez Carbajo has highlighted that the cash receipts of the AEAT until September have increased by 13% year-on-year, five percentage points more than initially planned (8%), although it was foreseeable that this pace will moderate in the third quarter in line with the worst performance of the economy.
   At this point, Lopez Carbajo has emphasized that VAT revenues have increased by 50%, compared to 35% foreseen, which has compensated for the falls in Income Tax or Corporate Tax. At this point, he explained that this increase is due to the fall in the amount of the returns, the slowing of the requests for deferment and the improvement in consumption.
   Regarding the fall of the collection by Societies, Lopez Carbajo explained that a large part of the profits of the companies, which are falling due to the situation, come from abroad and do not tax in Spain, although it has also taken advantage of to qualify "quite generous" tax benefits linked to this tax.
   Regarding the open investigation into the accounts in the Swiss subsidiary of HSBC, Lopez Carbajo recalled that practically half of the taxpayers investigated - some 300 people - have already regularized their situation with the treasury, which has allowed to collect some 260 million.
   Another 250 taxpayers either have not regularized or have done so unsatisfactorily and another 100 people have not responded to the request. Said, this has clarified that the process is still under way and "it will not be a matter of two months".

   On the other hand, Lopez Carbajo, who has denied that the improvement of VAT collection is only the result of a greater fight against the shadow economy, has recognized, however, that this will be one of the strong points in the strategy of the fight against fraud for 2011.
  "We must underline the monitoring of the underground economy" and perform "an additional control", stressed the general director of the AEAT, who has advanced that this is expected to perform joint actions with the Labor Inspection and Social Security.
   In addition, it has specified that the monitoring of fraud control will focus on the liberal professions and on investigations in companies, not only in the usual sectors, but "in most of them". "We're going to aim high," he added.
   On the other hand, Lopez Carbajo has noted that the AEAT is already conducting research from new sources of information, such as electricity consumption, the use of credit cards and cash movements of more than 3,000 euros, which will make it possible to New impulse to the fight against fraud in 2011.
