SDOE set to see accounts from Tuesday

The Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE) will as of Tuesday have automatic access to the bank accounts of taxpayers under investigation.

Ten officials from SDOE’s central agency as well as two from each regional office will be able to examine the accounts of people being monitored for possible tax evasion or other tax-related offenses, putting an end to the problem of delays in the process of banks informing tax authorities of account content and data.

The new mechanism will allow the squad to find out about the balance of the accounts they need to investigate, while for the years after 2008 banks will also deliver information pertaining to the changes in the accounts recorded as well as transactions completed through them.

Based on this new online system, SDOE as well as other tax authorities will also be able to complete the cross-checking of tax data that taxpayers submit at greater speed.
