The tax office has published its annual list of companies which as of December 31 of last year owed in excess of €1m in unpaid taxes.
The publication is known as the ‘Montoro list’, after the politician who devised the idea of publicly shaming businesses which failed to pay.
Across the province, 62 companies owe more than €206 million to Hacienda (the Spanish tax office). This is a slight improvement over last year’s list, according to an investigation carried out by this newspaper. In 2015, more than 80 companies across Almería owed in excess of €237 million in unpaid taxes.
