June 23, 2017
The taxes Mendis Liquor Company maintained by Perpetual Treasuries, a primary dealer, has not paid millions to Department of Excise due as excise duty states Voice Against Corruption (VAC).
The convener of VAC Wasantha Samarasinghe says the company owed Department of Excise Rs. 320 million for the month of May.
Companies producing liquor have to pay taxes to Department of Excise every 15 days. However, Mendis Company owned by Arjun Aloysius has not paid taxes not only for May but also for the first fortnight of June says Mr. Samarasinghe.
He said companies that don’t pay taxes regularly are banned from production and legal action should be taken. However, Arjun Aloysius’ company has been allowed to continue production despite it has not paid taxes for several months pointed out the convener of VAC.
