In March 2019, it was reported that a raid was carried out at the Ufotable offices for alleged tax evasion. The following month, it was reported that Ufotable owed 400 million yen in taxes. In June 2020, both the firm and the company’s founder and president, Hikaru Kondo, were charged with violating the Corporation Tax Law and the Consumption Tax Law by failing to pay 139 million yen (approximately 1.28 million US dollars) in taxes. The studio released a public statement apologizing for its actions.
