KIAP prevented collection of significant amount of taxes from international company without lawsuit

KIAP lawyers successfully prevented additional accruals on field tax audit of a large international company. More than 86% of tax claims, which were related to so-called unfair contractors, were annulled by the tax authority after lawyers of KIAP, Attorneys at law, have prepared an objection for tax audit act.

It is important to mention, that in the context of pro-budget approaches of the courts, KIAP consider pre-trial settlement of tax disputes as the most preferable way to resolve tax conflicts for business. Tax claims elimination before proceedings leads to minimization of financial losses of the company (as a result of the tax audit, and the results of legal assistance) and simultaneously increases financial certainty (eliminates the risks of "blocking" accounts, forced tax collection, reduces reserves for the period of waiting for the results of the trial, which may take more than a year, etc.).

The Principal’s interests within the project were represented by partner Andrey Zuykov and associate Alexey Portnov.
