  • It is quite difficult to place examples of our consulting and tax audit results, as it relates to disclosure of clients’ tax and business secrets. However, many of the results of our work are expressed in the judicial practice, in this connection, we suggest to learn some of our work:

    The client in its activity guided by our tax advice. According to one consultation, there have been assessed additional taxes payable. Within the framework of consulting protection, we have recognized additionally accrued payments illegal, without additional charge.

     9AAS Judgment in the case No. 09АП-15370/2008

     

    We decided that the Legislative Assembly of the Chuvash Republic has set too high interest rates on UTII. In this regard, the increased tax rates have been found illegally set and only minimum rates remained in operation, allowing our taxpayer to significantly reduce the amount of tax payable to the budget.

     Decision of the Arbitration Court of the Chuvash Republic in the case No. А79-7103/2009

     

    In the above case, we recognized the Chuvash Republic Act invalid in terms of higher tax rates. And this case concerns the fact that our client has returned the overpaid tax amount from the budget for the last three years.

    Decision of the Arbitration Court of the Chuvash Republic in the case А79-9173/2010

     

    Representing the interests of the taxpayer, we have declared illegal the decision of the tax authority on the additional accrual of taxes due to relationships with short-lived companies. This case is noteworthy by the fact that the taxpayer had no other counterparties, according to the tax authority, which corresponded to reality. As a result of our hard work, all counterparties have been proven to be the most real and honest.

    Decision of the Moscow Arbitration Court in the case No. А40-146121/2009

     

    This is a matter of our “tax audit” series. We felt that VAT amounting to more than 10,000,000 rubles has been overpaid. However, the tax authority, by withholding to return tax, pointed out that three years have passed from the date of its payment, and there are no corresponding invoices. We have lost this case in first instance, but we won the appeal and cassation instances.

     Determination of the AU of the Moscow region in the case А41-3473/2012

     

    Defending the interests of the taxpayer, we have declared illegal the decision of the tax authority to charge additional taxes due to the relationship with short-lived companies. There is a lot of practice on such matters, but it is controversial. This case is interesting by way of proving that the short-lived company is a real, honest and conscientious taxpayer in reality:

    Decision of the Arbitration Court of the Chuvash Republic in the case No. А79-2853/2013

     

    Transfer of tax inspection materials to the investigative committee is provided by the Tax Code of the Russian Federation. After that, the investigating committee usually initiates a criminal case on the fact of tax evasion under Art. 199 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. However, this can be avoided by recognizing illegal the fact of transfer of tax audit materials to the investigative committee. There is no practice on this issue, but we have tried and we succeeded:

    Decision of the Arbitration Court of the Chuvash Republic in the case No. А79-7333/2013

     

    This is a result of work of “tax audit” series. And it is interesting by that neither the tax authority nor taxpayer knew that they overpaid the amount of tax to the budget, moreover the tax authority had confidence that the declared amount of tax was previously returned, and the requirement of the taxpayer was directed for the subsequent return of the tax amount. We have proved the fact of tax overpayment and money has been returned to its rightful owner:

    Decision of the Arbitration Court of Moscow region in the case No. А41-60073/2013

     

    This case is one of a series when requesting a tax refund and winning the case in the first instance court, the taxpayer was not going to recover interest for late tax refund amount from the tax authority. However, due to the fact that the tax authority has appealed the decision of the court of first instance, we announced in the appeal of an additional requirement for the interest recovery. The requirement has been satisfied.

    Resolution 10 AAS on the case А41-60073/2013

     

    Through our legal support, the client was able to recover the disputed tax amount:
