Taxiförbundet was previously out with a critical report on the taxi comapny Uber, after a review commissioned by the security company Gothia Protection Group.
The report notes that drivers often turn into a significantly much lower amount in the meter than the trip's actual price, which is paid via the app.
Each of the taximeter is connected to a redovisningscentral where the Tax agency can download the data, and taxiförbundet mean that the purpose of wrapping a lower total can not be anything other than tax evasion.
In a written comment announced Uber that they take the allegations seriously and will investigate the issue”. So far they have not come up with some new information, but in the meantime has DN been in contact with several of their drivers which mean that the criticism is unfounded.
" I doubt very strongly that any of us are cheating with the taximeter, knowingly. Certainly, there are stolpskott but it does it with all the other taxi companies as well, and would Uber get a track on them so the smoke directly, " says Cathrine Lind, who drove for a trucking company in Ubers flag in more than a year.
who manages the meter on the incorrect way as Taxiförbundet describes, but believe that there are other explanations than tax evasion.
" of Course you can shit in to do the accounts just as in all industries, but it is ridiculous for a control, so if you go the there. We may skattesammanställningar from Uber based on the data from the app that the Swedish Tax agency can sue against körpassrapporterna from the taximeter when they want to.
– That people handle the taximeter so here I think rather depends on a great deal of ignorance in the industry. Drivers receive poor education from their hauliers about how it should be used in the right way, says William Lind.
with a staff of drivers who drive under the Ubers flag. He also believes that the much-criticized handling of a taximeter is an absurd way to run away from his tax scheme.
He always beats up a dime in the physical meter before the trip, and then be able to adjust the final price to what the app shows after the trip. In this way he need not risk a fixed-price which is feature in the meter in advance will be too high if the customer wants to cancel the trip earlier, " he says.
– Some fix it to check in the app at the end of the day, and switch into a single long trip on a few thousand dollars per working day.
" No, certainly, really should you sue of the current after each trip. But no matter how you do it is the allegation of tax evasion is taken out of the air. All our transactions are traceable to the Tax office and all the drivers have agreed that Uber leaves out our transaction data to the Tax agency, " says Björn Berg.
Taxiförbundets ceo, Claudio Skubla, are still committed to eight of the ten Uberförare cheat on their taxes. To taxameterhanteringen would depend on the ignorance he sees as incredible.
– in Order to become driver, you must have passed a course of training and have done a test with the Dmv, so it is obvious that they have an eye on the taximeter. They know very well what they are doing, " he says.
