Tax notice-decisions were made based on the results of a planned documentary on-site inspection of the company, which established overestimation of the negative value of the object of taxation with income tax and underestimation of value-added tax. The tax authority contended that the company had wrongly calculated rent costs, which, in its opinion, were not related to the business activities“, – Aleksandra Fedotova, a partner who participated in preparation of company’s legal position, explains claims of the tax authority.

The court agreed with the arguments provided by Spenser & Kauffmann regarding the absence of legal grounds for tax authority’s conclusions.
