The Netherlands’ Fiscal Information and Investigation Service (FIOD) has arrested a 24-year-old man from Northeast Friesland for tax fraud.
The FIOD began its investigation after tax authorities raised alarm. The detainee owns a company on behalf of which he used fake invoices to reclaim sales tax. This forgery has led to a loss of over 240,000 euros ($290,837) to the Dutch treasury.
During the investigation, the FIOD searched the detainee’s home and business addresses. The FIOD has further seized all digital and physical properties of the accused.
