The Bakhmach & Partners Law Association team successfully defended the interests of a leading Ukrainian retailer in a litigation with the State fiscal service of Ukraine.

In 2018, according to the results of a planned check, the Tax Service of Kyiv adopted a tax notification - decision that additionally charged the enterprise a tax on profits worth about 8 million UAH.

Fiscal service claims concerned the reflection in the customer's account of expenses incurred by the client for payment for trademark services and royalties.

On July 29, 2019, the District Administrative Court of Kyiv decided that the tax dispute with the client was resolved in favor of the company. At the same time, all accrued tax liabilities are canceled.

Given the circumstances of this dispute, we have applied a wide range of  legal tools to protect the client's interests. This concerns, in the first place, the involvement of forensic experts, auditors, legal experts who have brought clarity to the subject matter of the dispute. The achieved result confirmed the legal accuracy of the client's operations."

The partner Maxim Kompanets  and lawyer Julia Semenenko worked on the project.
