How to Protect Your Business in Tax Disputes: Practical Advice from KPMG Law Ukraine Lawyers

February 15, this year KPMG office hosted a business breakfast "Tax Disputes in 2018: New Trends and Practical Advice on Evidence." Sergey Popov, Partner, Larysa Antoshchuk, Head of Tax Dispute Resolution Practice, Irina Khilyak and Vladyslav Kepko, Lawyers at KPMG Law Ukraine, spoke with participants of the event.

The speakers voiced the general trends in tax disputes and forecasts for 2018. In particular, Sergey Popov noted: "If you compare the results of 2017 with the previous period, the number of inspections has increased slightly, but the amount of accrual has grown 2.5 times! The same trend with regard to litigation - their number increased slightly, but the amount of claims increased significantly. This suggests that the approach of tax authorities became an aggressive one and the consideration in the courts was more complicated. "

Particularly, the lawyers told how to defend themselves in tax disputes regarding recognition of economic operations "unrealistic" and provided practical guidance on formation of the evidence base and strategy of protection. "Today, the business should pay one and a half percent as a court fee for "access to justice" from the so-called "price of the claim" which takes into account the amount of all tax statements. Today the conditions of procedural legislation have also changed, which requires the parties, first of all, to actively participate in the administrative process of a more formalized nature ", - commented Larysa Antoshchuk.
