The gang is believed to have issued over PLN 200 million (EUR 47m, USD 58m) worth of false VAT invoices for non-existing goods, Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported on Wednesday.
The group is also suspected of money laundering, IAR added.
Two people have been detained after over 100 tax officials and anti-corruption officers swooped on the gang, searching apartments, company headquarters and accounting offices in Warsaw and other cities.
One of the suspects, a Vietnamese, is suspected of laundering PLN 50 million in 2016 and 2017, according to the IAR agency.
Inquiries are continuing.
