Aequo secures a victory for ArcelorMittal in a precedent-setting tax dispute

The dispute arose after the Ukrainian tax authorities charged the company with additional corporate tax liabilities on the basis that the company was not entitled to use a tax privilege that allowed it to reduce its corporate tax liability by the amount of excise tax paid as part of the purchase of certain types of diesel fuel.

We achieved success for the client in this case at all levels of the court system, culminating in a precedent-setting Supreme Court victory in July 2020.

The dispute was complicated as it arose out of recent legislative amendments, and a lack of jurisprudence in this specific area.
