A claim was filed by Vostok LLC to the Ukrainian State Tax Inspectorate (STI) in the Solomenskiy district of Kiev on the revocation of tax notice-decisions and estimated tax liabilities on CPT and VAT in the amount of UAH 2.3 million.
Vostok was charged with unreasonably understating tax liabilities in transactions arising from the purchase of accounting services by an outsourcing company. This conclusion of the tax inspection was based on the absence of any link between the costs incurred and the company's business activities.
The cassation appeal of the tax inspectorate against the decision of the court of appeal was dismissed by the High Administrative Court of Ukraine, and so the decision of the court of appeal was upheld.
ILC Eucon lawyers Volodymyr Bevza and Oleksandr Melnyk were led by Managing Partner Yaroslav Romanchuk on the deal.
