DENMARK EXPANDS LEGAL CAMPAIGN TO RECOUP TAX FRAUD BILLIONS, INCLUDING IN UK

Reuters on 21 August reported that Denmark said it is targeting US and British companies and individuals as it expands a global campaign to recoup billions it alleges were paid out in fraudulent tax refunds between 2012 and 2015.  Danish tax authorities said they have opened 388 civil cases against firms or individuals in several countries, including Britain and the US, bringing claims to $1.95 billion.

CPH Post Online reports that, according to the judicial news site Law 360, 71 individuals and companies from the UK are being sued for taking part in the huge swindle. SKAT reportedly filed 71 lawsuits at the High Court in London in late July.
