The main reasons for charging penalties were allegedly performing “unreal” business transactions by the company, technical mistakes in tax returns, and divergence with counterparties' reports.
GOLAW attorneys managed to refute unlawful decisions and prove groundlessness of conclusions of the tax authority, which in fact had the nature of assumptions.
In addition, GOLAW managed to achieve compensation of legal expenses for professional legal assistance in the amount of more than 6 thousand dollars.
The project was handled by Partner, Head of Tax practice Iryna Kalnytska and Associate Olena Sulyma.
