The Finnish Government has threatened to close the office of Santa Claus over unpaid taxes.
The business, with a turnover of Euro 2 million had Russians as it’s main customers. Sanctions imposed post Russian role in Ukraine, resulted in a sharp decline in the customer base. This resulted in losses, hence the unpaid tax bill.
The business, however is optimistic of meeting the one week deadline to pay the taxes and prevent closure.
Amen to that!
