More specifically:

  • 8 taxpayers had their business premises seized for 30 calendar days for failure to issue tax coupons (second time), respectively;
  • 50 entities have been found unregistered in the tax authorities and the measure to block them until their registration as VAT entities has been taken;

  • 44 taxpayers did not have their fiscal equipment installed, whereas 28 others did not keep them in operation;
