Dnipro Legal issues, Dnipro Finance and Taxes
Today, the problem of suspending the registration of tax invoices is one of the most acute for Ukrainian enterprises, as the company may receive a tax credit refusal through transactions with enterprises that have signs of fictitiousness. At the Joint Meeting of the Legal and Financial-Tax Committees of the EBA Dnipro on December 12, we spoke on how to protect enterprices from fictitious transactions and minimize the risks. Anna Popkova, head of the practice of litigation at LA “Absolut”, described what fictitious business activities are, which deals can be considered fictitious, and what is the principle of individual responsibility.
Moreover, Ms. Anna gave a number of recommendations to the meeting participants on how to prepare enterprises for planned comprehensive inspections in 2019, namely:
- to fix and maintain all the original documentation, which can serve as proof of conducting pre-contract work and confirm the reality of economic transactions;
- in advance, to apply to the relevant institutions with a request to split the comprehensive plan inspections into separate ones;
- to monitor digital tracks in dealing with your counterparts and reporting.
At the end of the meeting, all the participants had the opportunity to ask their questions to Ms. Anna and discuss the trends in the development of modern Ukrainian jurisprudence.
We thank LA “Absolute” for an interesting professional report, and BDO Ukraine for a welcoming reception.
