Arzinger has successfully represented Ceetrus Ukraine in a UAH 53 million VAT refund dispute before three court instances.

According to Arzinger, the courts held that Ceetrus conformed to the tax law requirements. "The courts found the lack of violation in the following three episodes: failure to comply with the chronology principle in forming the negative value of VAT, subleasing leased property along with the relevant compensation for utility payments, technical errors in filling in annexes to the VAT return," the firm informed.

Established in 1976, Ceetrus specializes in the real-estate sector and owns 300 shopping centers in 10 European countries. Ceetrus Ukraine, formerly Immochan Ukraine, manages seven shopping galleries in Ukraine.

According to the firm, following the tax law dispute, "Ceetrus received the total VAT refund."

The Arzinger team included Managing Partner Timur Bondaryev, Partner Kateryna Gupalo, Lawyer Marta Orlenko, Senior Associate Nikita Larionov, and Junior Associate Kseniia Dobrieva.
