In 2014 they announced almost 300 notions of which almost one half pointed to tax frauds especially evasion of income and value added taxes. The rest pertained to illegal import of spirits, tobacco, narcotic and psychotropic agents but also copyright violation. In 63 cases the callers pointed to not sticking to the law on usage of the electronic registration cashier, the TASR newswire wrote in late January.

“The green line is free incoming from all telephone networks in Slovakia and is for all who want to announce a suspicion of criminal activity,” said Patrícia Macíková, spokesperson of the Financial Administration. “Workers of the Financial Administration examine all the notions, including those anonymous.”

Apart from the free line, those who want to announce any suspicions, can send their notions by email to the Financial Administration or the Criminal Office of the Financial Administration in Bratislava.
