National Program for Combating the Commercial Concealment continues inspection visits to bust lawbreakers in Riyadh Region

11 Aug 2022


The National Program for Combating the Commercial Concealment has continued its inspection visits to businesses suspected of committing crimes or violating the Anti-Concealment Law.
The visits covered markets and businesses across the Riyadh Region and were conducted based on data analysis and artificial intelligence.  

The Ministry of Commerce reported the owners of businesses that violated the Anti-Concealment Law to the appropriate authorities so that they could face the statutory fines mandated by the law.

Following the issuance of final judicial decisions against offenders, the law provides for penalties such as up to five years in prison, a fine of up to five million riyals, and the seizure and confiscation of illegitimate funds. 

Consequential legal penalties include the shutdown of the business, the liquidation of the business activity, the revocation of the commercial register, the prohibition from engaging in commercial activity, the payment of Zakat, duties, and taxes, and the deportation of those involved in concealment practices and not permitting them to return to the Kingdom for work.
