On September 7, from 10.00 to 12.00, in the premises of the European Business Association in Kyiv (Andreevsky Slope street, 1-A), a seminar on the topic “Problems of suspended tax invoices and ways to solve them” was held. The speaker was a leading tax lawyer of the company Finance Business Service, Roland Bondarets. The event was attended by more than 30 people, including the representatives of legal, consulting, investment, industrial (including heavy industry) and international manufacturing companies. The seminar consisted of two parts – theoretical and practical. In the first half, Roland Bondarets highlighted the legal framework of this problem, schematically demonstrated the way which the tax invoice went from the filing to the moment of its blocking. He reminded about the grounds for the decision of registration refusal of the TI / AC, and presented the algorithm of the taxpayer’s actions in this the case to the attention of the present people. The lawyer considered the most common errors in completing the Technological table and other documentation relating to such technical issues as “excess” by the number of characters, lines or signs in the code of the goods or services. The recommendations made at the seminar will help entrepreneurs avoid a negative decision of the tax authority. A clear comparison of administrative and judicial review procedures was also made, including the terms of implementation, cost, package of documents and other important criteria. At the end of his presentation, Roland Bondarets prepared the cases from real court practice on this issue with court decisions. The practical part of the seminar was devoted to the analysis of individual cases and it was conducted in the “question-answer” format. Since starting from the dialogue the conversation immediately turned into a collective discussion, each participant of the event had the opportunity not only to listen to the expert’s opinion, but also to share his own experience with those present. Such “painful” issues as appealing against the decisions of the SFS from the side of the buyer (if the counterparty did not take the due actions) were considered, the appeal procedure in case of blocking of several identical TI, the practice of using tax clauses and precedents, disputes regarding the observation of the delivery terms of a tax invoice (when it is filed before the end of the operational day and received after), etc. The event was intended to help the real sector of the Ukrainian economy to avoid the consequences of the inadequate operation of the blocking system and to orient them towards solving the situation with minimal time and financial losses.
