Greek tax authorities are continuing their inspections on popular islands and in particular Mykonos as part of Operation Trident.

According to sources, a number of well-known businesses on the island were guilty of a number of improprieties.

These include the discovery of  POS machines linked to Switzerland in the Louis Vuitton store and another one in the same company's store in Nammos Village, where Spanish citizens working there were insured in the Spanish social insurance system (the authorities are examining the legality of this practice).

Kaluha beach bar in Paraga, Mykonos, failed to issue receipts worth 3,500 euros, while a tourist shop operating in the premises offered merchandise without purchase invoices leading to a 48-hour shutdown.

Inspectors also confiscated the daily turnover - worth 19,000 euros - at Catrine, a famous restaurant in Mykonos, because the business had tax arrears worth 380,000 euros.

A 48-hour shutdown was also imposed on a laundry business in Mykonos for failing to issue receipts worth 13,000 euros.
