The main reason for the penalties accrual was allegedly a violation of settlements timing by the manufacturer in course of its foreign economic activity. However, GOLAW attorneys managed to refute the illegal accusations of the fiscal authority and to prove that the implementation of the latest penalties' calculations did not meet the requirements of the law and are ungrounded.

The interests of Galicia Distillery were represented by Counsel, Head of Tax practice Iryna Kalnytska, Counsel, Head of Dispute Resolution practice Kateryna Manoylenko and Associate Kristina Kolchynska.
