Tax legislation changes weekly. It is difficult for a business owner to keep track of changes. It is not always possible to get up-to-date tax information on the Internet. For example, on January 01, 2021, amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine came into force on the introduction of a single account for paying taxes and fees, unified social tax. Did you know about this? On December 4, 2020, the State Tax Service of Ukraine published a draft resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on reducing the effect of restrictions on inspections.
The team of Kapustin & Partners Law Firm is working to inform you about changes in legislation and minimize the risks of disputes with the tax authorities.
Many clients come to us after having received consultancy from the tax office by phone. It often turns out that the information they were given is not up to date.
It should be remembered that the tax authority represents the interests of the state and rarely interprets the law in favor of the taxpayer. That is why the administrative courts are busy with the work of resolving tax litigations. We suppose that it is worth starting with the pre-trial settlement of the dispute. This will save the client’s finances. If the negotiations did not help, we go to court and represent the client’s interests.
Often tax consultancy in Kyiv takes a lot of hours and does not bring results. A business student is able to assess the information activity in a neat way.
If you want to take into account the consultancy of a tax authority, the position of the sovereign body, we can readily accept the relevant information from lawyers. So it will be easier for you to seize your position from the dispute. You know the counterarguments.
For example, you call to get tax consultancy in Kyiv by phone and want to know when the unified social tax is considered paid: from the moment the payment was initiated or the moment the money was credited. The tax office can answer that at the time the money is credited. This answer seems logical, but does not comply with the law. At the beginning of the article, we wrote that on January 1, 2021, amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine came into force.
Now, the law states that the taxpayer’s obligation to pay taxes and fees to a single account is considered fulfilled from the moment the transfer is initiated. Information that is not up to date, which you received through telephone consultation with the tax office, may lead to unreasonable fines.
In order for a business owner to save time and money, a tax consultation should last no longer than an hour.
During the quarantine period, the Kapustin & Partners Law Firm began to practice tax consultancy over the phone or using video communication. We are glad that we can share our experience with clients from different cities. A tax consultant from the Kapustin & Partners Law Firm will offer you several options for resolving the tax problem, explain the legislation and send you a legal opinion.
