Bulgaria Tax Authorities Discuss Swiss Bank Data with Germany
Bulgarian National Revenue Agency (NAP) officials are in Germany Friday to investigate Bulgarians who have not paid tax on money in their Swiss bank accounts.
The NAP Director, Krasimir Stefanov, is holding talks with his German counterpart with the aim of obtaining information about deposits made by Bulgarians in Swiss banks and banks in Lichtenstein over a tax evasion probe.
In mid-February Bulgaria approached Germany, following the latter's intent to buy a stolen disc containing names of thousands of people with Swiss accounts who may have evaded taxation.
Stefanov says that Bulgaria currently intends to find out how useful the information would turn out and only then will offer money for it. He told Darik radio that several “businessmen” had called NRA to inquire about the probe. According to unconfirmed reports, about 10 people have already proposed to cut a deal with the tax authorities in order to avoid prosecution.
