Criminal cases against company officials, especially for alleged economic crimes, are, unfortunately, the current reality and an integral part of doing business in Ukraine.
At the moment, any tax reassessment for a company entails the risk of criminal cases being launched against the management of said company (for tax evasion).
In most cases, a company that is under official investigation did not actually violate the law. However, this must be proved in criminal proceedings, often in parallel with the lawsuits launched by the company against the additional tax levy.
Under such legal pressure, a company’s financial and commercial information (often confidential) documents, and employees are at the highest risk.
In the course of criminal proceedings, a wide range of investigative actions can be taken concerning the company, from premises searches and questioning of employees to seizure of assets and funds.
A company should be ready and prepared well in advance in order to protect itself from possible illegal actions and abuses by law enforcement agencies.
