LEGRANT defended the interests of a large trader in court for a total amount of over UAH 235,000,000

The Tax Authority carried out a documentary unscheduled on-site inspection of the Legrant’s Client who is the large grain trader. As a result, tax notifications-decisions were issued on violation of tax rules by the company for a total amount of more than UAH 235,000,000.

It is worth noting that the Client's company has all the primary documents drawn up within the framework of disputable legal relations, which in turn testifies to the implementation of economic relations within the framework of its economic activities.

In order to protect the rights of the Client, the law firm LEGRANT has developed a protection strategy and appealed to the court.

Legrant's lawyers succeed in proving that the Tax Authority did not investigate the circumstances of the economic transactions on formal reasons. Familiarization with the seized documents did not proceed properly, and the audit was carried out without a real study and research of primary and accounting materials.

The court reviewed the documents provided and agreed with the arguments of the lawyers, confirming that the tax authorities acted without taking into account all the circumstances when making decisions, which led to an unjustified tax burden for the LEGRANT’S Client.

LEGRANT’S senior lawyer Natalya Makovetskaya and lawyer Violetta Vytyaganets under the general supervision of managing partner Tatyana Titarenko supported the case.
