Representation of interests of Sberbank of Russia OJSC in a tax dispute in court

Advocates of the Law Firm "YUST" represented the interests of Sberbank of Russia OJSC in the course of consideration of the judicial dispute with Moscow Inspectorate No. 50 of the FTS of Russia to rule invalid the decision to bring to liability for a tax offence, which, according to the tax authority, was done in the form of understating of the amount of extra-sale income by the amount equal to the difference between the maximum amount of the fine, which can be exacted from the debtor, and the amount of the fine payable by the borrower on the basis of a court ruling. Besides, other disputable matters of taxation were considered in the course of this case, in particular – those concerning the procedure of withholding of the tax on individuals’ income from the bank’s clients.

The ruling of the first instance court, advantageous to the bank, was left unchanged as a result of consideration of the case in the second instance and in the instance of cassation.
