Tax disputes are disputes arising between a taxpayer and a tax administrator (in Lithuania – the State Tax Inspectorate (STI)) concerning decisions taken by the tax authorities to calculate or recalculate taxes, to refund or set off taxes or when the tax authorities take no decision at all, which, however, are required to be taken within statutory time limits.
Recently, tax inspections or investigations have been carried out with increasing frequency in Lithuania, resulting in tax disputes that arise both during their execution and after drawing up an inspection report or making a decision. Tax disputes arise in large part around issues such as the application of a 0% VAT rate, the determination of the transaction price between related parties, the use of the company’s assets for personal needs, and transactions that are not economically advantageous to the company.
