Tax Inspection Support

Tax inspection support is an essential and necessary component of financial management for companies and entrepreneurs. In the modern context of economic instability and stringent tax regulations, the ability to effectively manage tax inspections becomes a crucial factor in ensuring financial stability and compliance with legislative requirements.

Companies must have a clear and competent approach to tax inspection support, aimed at ensuring compliance with tax legislation, risk minimization, and financial optimization. The starting point is a thorough understanding of the processes and rules that define tax obligations and rights of business entities, as well as the ability to collaborate effectively with tax authorities.

What Is a Tax Inspection and How Is It Regulated?

A tax inspection is an official examination of tax accounting and compliance with tax legislation by a company or an individual. In Ukraine, tax inspection procedures are regulated by the Tax Code, Administrative Code, and other legislative acts.

Key aspects of tax inspections in Ukraine include:

  • Tax inspections can be conducted by tax inspections and other regulatory authorities. The State Fiscal Service (SFS) is responsible for conducting tax inspections in Ukraine.
  • Tax authorities have the right to examine documents, request information, inspect financial and economic activities, and take other actions to determine compliance with tax legislation.
  • Taxpayers have the right to participate in the inspection, provide necessary information and documents, and defend their rights in accordance with the law.
  • Violation of tax legislation during inspections can result in penalties, fines, the cancellation of benefits, and other sanctions.

Types of Tax Inspections (Physical and Documentary)

Tax inspections can be classified based on various criteria, including the nature of interaction with the taxpayer and the methods of conducting inspections:

  • Physical inspections involve a physical examination of the company or object of taxation by representatives of the tax service at its location. The procedure may include verifying the presence of tangible assets, compliance with legal norms, and other aspects that can be physically verified.
  • Documentary inspections, in this case, tax authorities conduct inspections by analyzing documents and information provided by the taxpayer without a direct visit to the taxpayer’s location. This may include examining financial statements, tax declarations, contracts, and other documents.
