Real estate sale subjected to VAT
Legal assistance in a tax litigation concerning a real estate sale subjected to VAT (purchase from the constructor).
The Firm provided legal assistance to a cooperative construction company in a tax litigation against the tax agency concerning the application of VAT to a real estate purchase from the constructor.
The tax agency argued the eligibility of the registration fee, rather than VAT, for the purchase transaction above mentioned.
Furthermore, the decision on the merit of the case required the solution of a preliminary issue brought by the tax agency which also claimed the expiration of the term for appeal.
In this regard, with the support of the Firm, the cooperative company was able to provide evidence that the expiration of the term was indeed caused by the misleading behaviour of the tax office.
The Firm’s succeeded in obtaining relief from the expiration of the time for appeal and successfully demonstrated the absolute validity of the reasons given by the cooperative company concerning the application of VAT.
