Tax issues: Other issues Kyiv

Subject of complaint: General Directorate of the State Fiscal Service (GD SFS) 
Complaint in brief: The Council received a complaint from an agricultural trader, whom the State Treasury did not repay the debt worth over UAH 6mn. 
In September, Kyiv Court of Appeal ordered to charge a penalty worth over UAH 6 mn from the state budget in favor of the Complainant. This penalty related to 2012-2015 arrears for a VAT refund. However, even after the court ruling, the State Treasury continued ignoring the company’s appeal. Having a successful experience in refunding UAH 20 mn of VAT with the Council’s assistance in 2016, the Complainant asked the institution for help again. 
Actions taken: The Council’s investigator examined case materials and prepared arguments in support of the company. He asked the State Treasury in writing to comply with the court order and repay the debt to the Complainant.
Result achieved: With the Council’s involvement, the case got underway. The state authority repaid the debt to the company in full. The case was closed successfully.
