We remind our clients and partners, that tax audits in Ukraine are very strict and the tax authorities are unforgiving. In our experience this has become even more so during wartime. The best way to insure your business against a tax audit and potential fines thereafter is to have a strong accounting policy and to take very good care of your accounting books.
