Moscow Tax Guys Swing Their Hammer At PwC


It gets worse and worse for PwC. The FT and the Moscow Times report:

Tax Service Widens Its PwC Case

The Federal Tax Service on Friday expanded its case against PricewaterhouseCoopers as it called for the auditor and prosecutors to produce documents that it said pointed to PwC advising Yukos on avoiding taxes.

The tax service’s lawsuit against PwC accuses the international auditing firm of colluding with the now-bankrupt oil company by signing off on false audit reports, the Financial Times reported.

PwC and the Prosecutor General’s Office were subpoenaed during a hearing at Moscow’s Ninth Arbitration Appeal Court on Friday, with members of the service’s fifth tax inspectorate demanding that a list of all the company’s 146,000 employees worldwide and a rundown of the firm’s international units be handed over by Oct. 25, Interfax reported.
