Complaint in brief: An Oblast State Tax Inspection was groundlessly hindering the complainant’s ability to file tax invoices electronically. Consequently, the complainant was unable to register its tax invoices.

Result achieved: Following the intervention of the Business Ombudsman Council, the complainant’s issue was resolved within two days. The complainant’s normal business operations and ability to file tax invoices electronically were restored and the case was closed.
