Cai & Lenard’s lawyers defended Whirlpool Ukraine in a dispute with the state tax inspection service of Ukraine
Supported by Cai & Lenard’s lawyers, Whirlpool Ukraine won in a dispute with the state tax inspection service of Ukraine.
The Court fully supported the position of the plaintiff, a well-known supplier of household appliances, and admitted as unjustifiable the tax authority’s decision on revocation of the taxpayers’ right to include the losses of 2010 at the amount of UAH 2.7 million in the expenses of 2011.
“The tax authorities’ misinterpretation of some provisions of the Tax Code of Ukraine resulted in numerous judicial proceedings. The tax authorities’ massive campaign of non-recognition of losses of 2010 and previous years evoked a wide response and, undoubtedly, prejudiced the investment image of Ukraine” – mentioned Konstantin Pilkov, Cai & Lenard’s Managing Partner, Head of the International Trade and Arbitration Practices, Customs and Tax Law.
