Golaw has successfully represented international cosmetics manufacturer Evyap Trading Ukraine in a tax dispute worth UAH 4 million.
According to Golaw, "in 2020, as a result of a desk audit, tax liabilities and fines amounting to almost 4 Million UAH were unreasonably imposed on [the] client. The reason for imposing a fine was allegedly incorrect filling out of the income tax return."
The firm said it was successful in proving that "the supervisory body abused its power and went beyond the desk audit, having conducted the analysis of the tax reporting indicators." In contrast, Evyap "correctly declared and paid the income tax return."
The firm represented the company in another tax dispute last year (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on May 14, 2020).
The Golaw team working on the matter consisted of Senior Associate Olena Sulyma and Junior Associate Anna Sokur, under the guidance of Partner and Head of Tax Iryna Kalnytska.
