DSI raids Niche Cars Group, impounds all 60 luxury supercars

Authorities from the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) yesterday raided Niche Cars Group, the country’s leading high end distributor of luxury supercars, after suspecting it of tax avoidance.

The DSI team was led by its deputy director general Pol Lt Col Koravajara Panpraphakorn.

The team raided the company’s four-storey showroom building on Rama 9 in Suan Luang area for search after receiving information that the supercar importer made false declaration of the prices of luxury cars to avoid the high import duties.

Inside the showroom are over 60 luxury super cars, 40 of which are Lamborghini cars, and the rest comprising Lotus, McLaren, Pagani, Ferrari, Hummer, and Koenigsegg cars.

The DSI deputy chief said all the 60 supercars in the company will be impounded until the importer could produce evidence that show import duties were properly and legally paid.

During the raid yesterday, the owner of the company denied any access to the premise by news journalists.

Niche Cars Group is Thailand’s leading high end distributor of elite automotive brands. Niche Cars Group has been in business almost 30 years and become a leading car importer in Asia.

DSI seize 122 super cars in nine raids in Bangkok

A total of 122 super cars have been impounded by the Department of Special Investigation following coordinated raids of nine car showrooms and warehouses, especially the Niche Car Group, in Bangkok on Friday.

The impounding of the 122 luxury cars were announced at a press conference by justice deputy permanent secretary Pol Col Dusadee Arayawuth and DSI chief Pol Col Paisit Wongmuang.

Officials of the DSI split up to raid nine locations connected with import of luxury cars, including showrooms at Siam Paragon and Ekamai, Raminthra road and the residence of Mr Wittavat Choenbaramee of the Niche Car Group.

The cars impounded include Lamboghini, Ferrari and Lotus.

DSI deputy director-general Pol Lt-Col Korawat Parnprapakorn told the media that initial investigation findings showed that the Niche Group was linked to the grey market’s import of luxury and super cars into the country.

He alleged that these importers falsified invoices that under-declared the actual prices of the cars by 10-18 million baht per unit in order to avoid paying full amount of import taxes if the actual prices were declared.

He said that, at this stage, it was not concluded whether there were any government officials involved in this tax illegal business.

It was noted that the raids came ahead of Niche Car Group’s plan to hold an exhibition of second-hand super cars.

DSI submits list of 110 officials to graft buster for probe in supercar tax evasion scam

The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has submitted a list of 110 state officials to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) for probe after finding them responsible for customs documentation clearance of the 122 supercars impounded from several car importers in Bangkok and Samut Prakan on Thursday and yesterday for suspected import tax avoidance.

The supercars impounded include famous brands such as Lamborghini, Lotus, McLaren, Pagani, Ferrari, Hummer, and Koenigsegg.

DSI said over 10 billion baht in tax was avoided a year from such false declaration of actual car prices by these unscrupulous importers.

The 110 names of state officials comprise both high ranking officials at executive level and low ranking officials.

According to the DSI, the impounding of these supercars came from several years of investigation into an incident in Pak Chong district of Nakhon Ratchasima in May 2013 when several supercars were damaged in a mystery fire while these cars were on the way to deliver to customers in Sisaket province.

Trailing of these cars back to Bangkok showed they were delivered by some of these car importers raided yesterday by DSI.

DSI found these importers have exploited loopholes on the customs law to evade tax. They forged prices in the invoices to under-declare the actual prices from the manufacturers.

DSI deputy director general Korawat Panpraphakorn cited an example of a supercar of which the original price at factory was 200,000 Euro but was changed to 100,000 US dollars so as to pay lower taxes.

He declined comment when asked why customs officials didn’t have information on pricing data from manufacturers, saying he could not get interfered in their works.

All the names were in the hands of the NACC to look into any collusion, he said.

At the same time deputy permanent secretary for justice, Pol Col Dusadee Arayawut said there were collusions between companies and state officials.

So they would be held responsible for the missing taxes.
