Russia’s tax service demands $1.5 mln from ex-FIFA World Cup IT contractor
MOSCOW, September 23 (RAPSI) – The Federal Tax Service has asserted two claims totaling to nearly 95 million rubles (about $1.5 million) against Asteros company, a former IT contractor of FIFA-2018, according to the Moscow Commercial Court’s records.
The claims will be heard on November 6.
In July, the Moscow Commercial Court declared Asteros bankrupt.
Earlier, the Ninth Commercial Court of Appeals dismissed an appeal of Asteros against the inclusion of its debt to Sberbank of Russia in the amount of more than 2.7 billion rubles (about $41 million). The company sought to overturn a March decision of the Moscow Commercial Court.
In January, companies and individuals turned to courts seeking to be included in the list of creditors of Asteros; the total debt made about 33 billion rubles (almost $500 million).
A number of other companies also claim from Asteros debts amounting to almost 3.8 billion rubles (about $58 million).
Asteros company was involved in the development of a concept of security of Luzhniki stadium; its main areas of business activities were IT-infrastructure, engineering systems and telecommunications, complex security and outsourcing.
