The provincial department of Bizkaia of Finance and Finance has published today the list of large debtors with the aim of preventing tax fraud and strengthening the collective tax awareness of citizens, as reported by the provincial body.
Of the list, only six correspond to natural persons, while the rest are legal persons, whose debts or tax penalties have not been satisfied after the period of entry into the voluntary period.
By volume of debt, Iurbenoir Promociones SA tops the list, as on the previous occasion – six months ago – with more than 52 million euros of debt.
It is followed by Industrias Domésticas SL, with more than 17 million euros; Abaroa SA with more than 16 million euros, and Baensa SL, Edesa Sociedad Cooperativa and Moldis Echarro SL, with more than 10 million euros.
