Complaint in brief: The Business Ombudsman Council received a complaint from a company developing green energy sector. The company decided to terminate its activities in Ukraine and disagreed with the final tax audit findings. The Tax Service established the complainant had overstated the negative value amount included in the tax credit of the next reporting period by a total of over UAH 1 mn. According to the company, the last reporting tax period for VAT did not come, so the complainant had the right to declare the above-mentioned negative value amount. The company failed to convince tax officers on its own, so it turned to the BOC.
 
Actions taken: The investigator examined the circumstances of the complaint and found it substantiated. The Council considered the complainant’s objections with the participation of the MD STS administration by videoconference.
 
Result achieved: After the Council’s involvement, the Tax Service canceled the conclusion on negative value overstatement by the complainant included in the tax period worth over UAH 1 mn. The case was closed.
