In Greece, in recent years there has been a great effort to combat tax evasion, whether it concerns companies or individuals. At the level of legal persons, new control tools have been introduced, which, following the corresponding standards of the United States of America, attempting to disclose unregistered incomes, mainly to the final beneficiary. The tax authority continuously codifies and refine the control mode, and indeed for 2019, has already been issued Α1105/2019, which sets out precisely the number of tax audits to be carried out within the year and the selection criteria. But as for natural persons, in the attempt to have immediate victories in the fight against tax evasion and revenues in the empty funds, the Financial Crime Corps (IRS), the control Centre for taxpayers of Great Wealth (CEFOMEP) and the territorial jurisdiction tax authorities that are subject to order, have been equipped with reinforced powers of control of the bank deposits of Greek taxpayers. The main control tool has in recent years been the provision on the enhancement of property from an unknown source. By using the No. 48 PAR. 3 The CEFOMEP (Audit Authority for Taxpayers with Great Wealth) and the IRS open bank accounts of taxpayers and check one-to-one credits and charges for the accounts. They then oppose the credits to the taxable income each year and in the part where the credits are found higher, they charge taxes for hidden taxable matter from Unknown source.
