Alphonse Schuebeck confessed – at least in part. Star Chef has rigged accounts to smuggle money in front of the tax authorities. A tax official now explained how Shuhbeck proceeded.
Munich – This is the turning point Tax Process Around Alphonse Schuebeck (73): on Wednesday Munich The star chef made a partial confession. In his restaurant “Orlando” he “repeatedly used the opportunity to reduce sales” and thus took money out of the cash register, admits Schuhbeck. But how did it actually work? A tax official told the court how Fonsi may have tried to fool the tax office…
Alphonse Schuhbeck: This is how he fooled the tax office
The 73-year-old reportedly adopted different tactics. Tax officer Alexander M. (40) presents data on a USB stick that was sent to him by Schühbeck’s IT consultant Jurgen W. (65). Accordingly, he had already pointed out in the handover in 2019 that there were discrepancies…
Schuhbek: hundreds of thousands of euros missing from accounts
Striking: In 2010, the revision date of the files did not match the days with the daily statements from the Orlando restaurant. For example, all invoices from the beginning of January were turned over to February 1. Scam clue? It is difficult to prove. The fact is: from 2011 onwards, changes will become rare.
The tax officer also found that the personal data of the waiters on their statements exceeded the sales recorded for the day. An odd amount was deducted for each working waiter, surprisingly resulting in an even number. According to the tax office, Schuhbeck lost 500 or 600 euros every day, more on weekends than during the week.
An example: In 2010, Star Chef made about five million euros in sales with Orlando. The tax office found a total of 1,763 gaps in the statements. 687 146.88 euros do not appear in the data. The ratio of hidden sales is 13.87 percent. Even in later years, when the data sets are sometimes incomplete, the ratio is 12 to 14 percent. “Quick, quick, jack-jack and gone,” Fonsi described his sale removal on PC in court.
Alphonse Schuhbek: Hearing to continue on Friday
In 2014, the restaurant owner apparently changed his strategy. A “Waiter 0” appears in the data record for which only negative sales were posted. The correct waiter’s description is correct now, but money is still missing from the cash register due to a waiter who doesn’t actually exist.
Schuhbeck Südtiroler uses a different checkout system at Steuben – and probably falsifies his statements in a different way. However, the restorer relies on gaps in memory. There were also technical problems and difficulties with broken cables.
It is said that 1200 challan numbers had disappeared there alone. “That doesn’t mean the cable was kinked all the time,” says Judge Andrea Wagner. The hearing will continue on Friday as well.
