Advised the client in a tax dispute

Our tax litigation team has successfully advised the client in a tax dispute in which the Tax Authorities initially refused a deduction of input VAT by arguing that transaction was wholly artificial. However, at the same time the Tax Authorities agreed that the other contracting party had lawfully paid VAT on the same transaction.

Our law firm helped to convince the Tax Authorities that such a decision contradicts a variety of legal norms and main principles of VAT taxation. The Tax Authorities ultimately backed down and annulled their previous decision.
