Alberto González Amador, Isabel Díaz Ayuso’s partner since 2021, with whom he lives in the center of Madrid, defrauded the Treasury of 350,951 euros between 2020 and 2021 using a scheme of false invoices and shell companies. Everything appears in the complaint that the Madrid Provincial Prosecutor’s Office presented in court on March 5 after receiving a report from the Tax Agency with the conclusions of an investigation that began two years earlier. In the declarations presented in 2021 and 2022, the Treasury had detected suspicious movements in the companies of the couple of the president of Madrid due to their enrichment during the pandemic.

The Tax Agency report attributes to Alberto González Amador two crimes of tax fraud in corporate tax for 155,000 euros in 2020 and another 195,951.41 euros the following year. He also accuses him of document falsification for presenting false invoices through external companies with the aim of reducing the extraordinary profits of his companies.

In total, their companies presented 15 false invoices for fictitious expenses totaling 1.7 million euros. It was the method used to deduct expenses that were never incurred, reduce the profits declared to the treasury and pay 350,000 euros less in taxes over two years.

The companies investigated, both 100% owned by the Ayuso couple, are Maxwell Cremona Engineering and Processes for the Promotion of the Environment, which is actually dedicated to providing health services, and Masterman & Whitaker Medical Supplies and Health Process Engineering, a firm without employees of the cosmetics and pharmacy sector, which Alberto González Amador acquired at the end of 2020 and which, according to the Treasury, he used to divert part of the million-dollar profits achieved during the pandemic.

The complaint from the Prosecutor’s Office is also directed against four other people, accused of offering to issue invoices to Alberto González Amador’s companies. The conclusion of the inspection services is that, of all the expenses presented, 1,748,580.63 euros correspond to simulated orders and activities that were not carried out. Delivery notes from half a dozen companies, Spanish, but there is also one Mexican and another from the Ivory Coast that had no other function than to serve Isabel Díaz Ayuso’s partner to defraud the treasury.

Among those accused of these crimes is also an alleged businessman of Mexican origin named Maximiliano Eduardo Niederer González, who acts as a link between two of the companies that issued false invoices to Alberto González Amador’s companies: one for 620,000 euros in the name of a firm. Mexican company called MKE Manufacturing SA dated at the end of 2020, and another for 922,585.63 euros issued in 2021 by the company Gayani Ltd, based in the Ivory Coast.

The Tax Agency report concludes that there was an “intentionality wanted and sought by Maxwell Cremona SL [propiedad de la actual pareja de Ayuso] to request and use the two invoices that are clearly false or falsified with the specific purpose of achieving the intended tax reduction in the years in which it significantly increases profits.”

When questioned by the Treasury inspection service in April 2023, Niederer initially denied knowing the company MKE Manufacturing SA, despite the fact that his signature and name appeared on the invoices. He also ruled out being his representative and having signed any contract with Alberto González Amador’s companies. Six days later, the Mexican businessman sent a letter to the Treasury on his own, retracting it: in that second communication he alleged that he had confused the company the inspector was asking him about and stated that he did know MKE Manufacturing, although he assured that if its name appears in some contract it is due to an “involuntary error” of the company, given that he did participate as a representative in other businesses of that company.

In addition, the Prosecutor’s Office also denounces three Andalusian citizens who own half a dozen other companies that, according to the Treasury, also contributed to simulating expenses for the Ayuso couple’s corporate network for tens of thousands of euros. They are two brothers and a third man, all residing in the Sevillian municipality of Arahal.

The investigation began as a result of the statements presented in 2021 and 2022 that reflected an exponential increase in the turnover of the companies owned by the Madrid president’s partner starting in 2020, the first year of the pandemic. That year its sales multiplied by more than six, up to 2.3 million, according to its annual accounts. Despite this, before the Treasury he declared only 8,400 euros of profit, after recording expenses that did not correspond to reality.

In November of that year, it recorded an invoice of 620,000 euros to the aforementioned Mexican firm MKE Manufacturing, dedicated to the import and export of food. An invoice that was later attempted to be deducted despite the fact that they were services that, as the Treasury was able to verify, were not carried out.

This is what Alberto González Amador himself acknowledged to the Tax Agency. When he already had the inspection open, and after trying to regularize his situation with the treasury in July 2023, he tried to convince the Treasury that that invoice had been canceled. He did so after last August the Mexican authorities confirmed to the Spanish treasury that there was no invoice issued by MKE to Maxwell Cremona.

In 2021, Alberto González Amador’s company invoiced another 1.3 million. From that exercise, the Tax Agency’s attention was drawn to the deduction of an invoice of more than 900,000 euros issued in June of that year to pay for alleged orders made by Gayani LTD in the Ivory Coast. The Tax Agency has concluded that they were also simulated jobs that were not provided either. Again, when he already knew that the Treasury was investigating him, and after verifying that the inspectors did not accept his explanations, Ayuso’s partner tried to convince the Tax Agency that that invoice had been canceled a posteriori.

In addition to resorting to third parties to justify and deduct non-existent expenses to defraud the treasury, the Madrid president’s partner also used a shell company – “mere intermediary company” the Tax Agency calls it -, which it acquired at the end of 2020. The report The Treasury defines the objective of this operation as follows: “Remove funds for Alberto González Amador.” The mechanism used consisted of transferring to that company, Masterman and Whitaker, a contract with one of the regular clients of its other company since at least 2017, in exchange for 600,000 euros (plus VAT) for “System Consulting to clients.” . The problem was twofold according to the Treasury: that second firm, without employees or infrastructure, lacked the means to carry out the work, and furthermore the actual amount invoiced to that client was actually much lower, 237,320 euros.

In the eyes of the Tax Agency, this “meaningless” transfer was a “simulation” through which the intermediary company issued “a fictitious invoice” for an estimated amount, which “does not correspond to the reality of the service provided.” ” and “without responding to the reality of the services provided.” The result, the Tax Agency inspection concludes, is that Alberto González obtained an “unacceptable tax advantage” to “artificially create negative tax bases to be offset in future years.” Doing the math, the new company recorded losses of more than 222,000 euros that year. With that false invoice, he generated a deductible expense with which he recorded a future tax credit to be able to offset it with a tax deduction when he began to declare profits.

For a tax crime to exist, in addition to the amount defrauded exceeding 120,000 euros per year (as in this case), there must be fraud: a conscious will to defraud the Treasury which, according to the Tax Agency, in the case of Alberto González Amador is evident, because there is deception or concealment. There would also be accounting falsehood, because Maxwell Cremona’s accounts do not reflect his true financial situation, although the Prosecutor’s Office has decided not to file a complaint for this crime, which is always associated with tax fraud.

With its investigation closed, the Tax Agency sent its conclusions to the Madrid Prosecutor’s Office on January 23 to file a complaint in court, which the public ministry did on March 5. It requests the indictment of Alberto González Amador and each of the alleged businessmen who contributed to the false billing of his company. In the case of the partner of the president of Madrid, he is accused of three crimes, two of tax fraud and a third of document falsification.

Several press articles echoed in the spring of 2021 the romantic relationship between Isabel Díaz Ayuso and Alberto González Amador, although without specifying the moment in which the relationship began. For months the couple has been living together in an apartment in the Chamberí district, in the center of Madrid, as has been able to verify. The home, acquired for the couple’s use on July 27, 2022, is in the name of Alberto González Amador. The apartment has 183 square meters and is valued at 837,893.61 euros, although the market price in the exclusive area where it is located could skyrocket its value. The valuation that the Idealista portal makes of the homes in that same building reaches up to 1,194,000 euros. The property has a mortgage of 500,000 euros in the name of the businessman.

Neither Alberto González Amador nor Isabel Díaz Ayuso have responded to the questions posed by to prepare this information.
