Paper product firm gets court decision on VAT enforced

Tax issues: Problems with the electronic VAT administration Kyiv region

Subject of complaint: State Fiscal Service of Ukraine (SFS)
Complaint in brief: On July 6, 2016, the BOC received a complaint from a company that supplies cardboard and paper products regarding continued failure to act on the part of the SFS. The SFS had failed to increase the amount of VAT of UAH 22,129,805 as a negative value for June 2015 in the Electronic VAT Administration System and to display a corresponding increase in the extract from the Electronic VAT Administration System.
Before addressing the BOC, the Complainant had referred this matter to the Kyiv District Administrative Court and received a court decision in its favor. Although the tax authorities appealed the ruling, the decision was upheld by Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals on June 22, 2016. Still, the SFS took no action to amend the amount of VAT registered in the Electronic VAT Administration System.
Actions taken: On July 13, 2016, the BOC sent a request to the SFS. Since the SFS did not respond within the requested timeframe, the BOC has sent a reminder on August 2, 2016, and requested that the SFS immediately resolve the issue by carrying out the court decision.
Result achieved: On August 17, 2016, the SFS informed the BOC that the issue had been successfully settled. This case was successfully resolved in about one month, 1.5 times sooner than the timeframe provided for in the BOC Rules.
