Mykola Siutkin, the founder and CEO of S&P Investment Risk Management Agency.
Preventing problems is not only more effective, but also cheaper than overcoming negative consequences. This concerns all spheres of our life from health to business.
In 2018, there was a lot of high-profile cases and raider attack attempts (BRSM-Nafta, EuroPower, Rostok Holding, Victoria Gardens shopping mall), as well as pressure on business of law enforcement authorities (Nova Pochta, Philip Morris Ukraine, Risoil S.A.). An unprecedented anti-leader remains the pre-trial investigation initiated by the Kyiv Prosecutor’s Office, in which 42 companies with foreign investments – Huawei, Samsung, Kyivstar, Bayer, Sanofi and other international giants – are accused in tax evasion and the illegal withdrawal of funds abroad. According to law enforcement officers, the total amount of unpaid taxes is about 950 million hryvnia.
We, from the S&P company, have analyzed the results of our work on the protection of the business. We can note the fact that over the past 3 years only with the help of our company were closed 25 high-profile criminal cases against large foreign companies and their leaders on tax evasion in the total amount of more than 950 million UAH!
