To a company with foreign investments, a processor and exporter of sunflower oil, a tax office increased an object of taxation by profits tax in the amount of 35 million UAH, based on the violations committed by a counterparty.
Our experts carried out a careful analysis of finance and economic transactions between the client and the counterparty, which in the opinion of a tax office were “non-commodity”. Written explanations regarding commercial transactions from counterparty’s officials were received, which together with all collected evidence were attached to the case’s materials. During the judicial examination, our company proved the absence of just causes for putting the responsibility on our client for violations committed by the counterparty. The first-instance court agreed with our legal proposition and satisfied the stated claims in full.
As a result of our work, the client has not incurred additional expenses on payment profits tax.
