“I do not know any other country than this …”

31 October, 2012 Newsletters

According to the reports in press that are referring to the data of the tax authorities (“Ekonomichna pravda”), the tax authorities win almost  100% (99.7%) of the disputes in the courts.

We may only wonder from such high index. We do not know any other country in which the “balance” of court decisions in favor of the tax authorities would have been as high as in Ukraine.

For comparison – in Russia the index of recognition of the tax notifications-decisions invalid or of the refusal to answer a claim of the tax authority remains almost unchanged from 2008 to 2012 at about 60% not in favor of the tax authorities (“Rossiiskaia Biznes Gazeta “).

The above commentary presents the general statement for information purposes only and as such may not be practically used in specific cases without professional advice.
