Tax refund

Reasons why company overpaid taxes (fees) could be different. In general, these are mistakes in tax (fee) calculation, which accountants find only after declarations are submitted. In that case, to register overpay, a clarified declaration should be provided, which will be subject of office audit first. Moreover, office audit in these cases will be very comprehensive with requests of tax inspectors for additional explanations, justifying changes in tax declaration.

Reasons of overpay might be different. For example, as a result that in the end of the year annual tax amount is less than amount of annual advance payments on the tax. Alternatively, because of a technical mistake of an accountant.

It is very necessary to communicate with tax authorities and non-budget funds, prepare explanations with supporting documents, and determine an order of refund or offset of the already paid tax in these cases.

Support during tax inspections

Tax inspection (office or on-site) is one of the most convenient ways of tax control when additional taxes, payments and penalties are charged for tax authorities.

Tax-payers have passive position in defending their interest, which leads to financial losses of the company that could cause bankruptcy of the entity and as a consequence lead to undesirable (including even criminal) outcome.

Limited liability company «PMsmart consulting» will help you to avoid all negative aftermaths, connecting with tax-inspections. Our team lead supports you during all stages of tax inspections on communication with tax authorities:

  • participation in office and on-site tax inspections
  • pre-trial settlements of disputes with tax authorities
    Tax legislation of the Russian Federation obliges tax-payers to try to settle tax disputes on office and on-site tax inspections in pre-trial processes. That is why companies should understand their rights during pre-trial settlement with tax authorities, what should be taken into attention and how to defend themselves most effectively, including preparation of the documents;
  • court appeals against decisions  
    This is an important stage of tax inspection and evidences provision; usage of procedural possibilities allows to increase chances that decision of tax authority will be determined as unreasonable in arbitral proceedings.

The most effective instrument in preparation to any tax inspection is an independent check of operations posting for tax management. These measures are more reasonable when the company has bigger amount of documentation and top managers have insecurities about correctness of account and tax management.
