Denmark – Staffing firm fined €1 million after fraud

12 December 2012

A staffing firm in Denmark was fined over one million Euros for undeclared work and for not paying taxes. It has now been forced to shut down its operations. The firm, Århus Vikar Service, was ordered by a district court to pay a sum of DKK 8.5 million (€1.1 million) to the tax office, SKAT.

The firm had hired seemingly countless workers and subcontractors to undertake cleaning services, but did not declare the work and therefore operated illegal employment and black labour. The company ducked paying taxes, which it now has to pay back after the court convicted it of fraud.

The local newspaper Fagbladet writes that Kent Carit Christensen is the owner of the company who also operates a property firm in Bulgaria. A number of his companies have gone bankrupt in the past. He has so far not commented on the issue.
