SDOE raids continue over holiday season

The number of inspectors dispatched by Greece’s Financial Police (SDOE) to check whether businesses are complying with the law over the holiday season has been increased, with the first round of the raids over the week before and during Christmas revealing that the majority of law breakers did not issue sales receipts or employed workers who were uninsured.

In the suburb of Nea Smyrni, just south of central Athens, officers arrested the manager of a bar for failing to issue receipts for 930 euros’ worth of sales. SDOE will continue its inspections around the country.
