On Tuesday, January 29, 2019, partner at SBH Law Offices Anastasiya Malakhova and head of tax practice, counsel to SBH Law Offices Natalya Zvorono participated as experts in the round table “Business goal in concluding transactions: how to apply in practice and what to expect from tax bodies”, organized by the portal “System Lawyer”.

During the discussion, the following questions were reviewed:

  •  Paragraph 4 of Article 33 of the Tax Code - Decree No. 488 on pseudo-business entities 2.0 or an attempt by the legislator to comply with global trends in combating tax evasion?
  • "The main purpose of the business transaction": what it is, whether it should be specified in the contract and how it can be confirmed.
  • The business purpose of the transaction –you need to prove your good faith again?
  • Contract price. How to prove that the purchase of goods at a price cheaper than the average for the market is an attempt to save on costs, and not to evade taxes.
  • Adjustment of the tax base (the amount of tax). To what size is such an adjustment allowed, if the transaction was intended to reduce the tax base?
  • Reducing the tax base = tax evasion?
  • A random check is coming: should we check every deal?
  • How to prepare for proving the reality of a business goal at the moment of the transaction (which documents will help; what evidences are needed; how to prove the “main goal of a business transaction”)?
  • Business purpose and mediation (through controlled or non-resident independent companies): will there be a change in approaches?
