The Finnish Tax Administration’s Adjustment Board has partially approved Kamux’s appeal against the tax reassessment decision received by the company
 

The Finnish Tax Administration’s Adjustment Board has issued a decision regarding Kamux’s appeal against the tax reassessment decision from June 15, 2018. 

In its decision, the Adjustment Board has partially approved the appeal by Kamux and has ruled that the company receive a refund of approximately EUR 0.9 million. 

As a result of the decision, Kamux will recognize a EUR 0.9 million tax gain in its result for the second quarter of 2020.

Both parties have the opportunity to appeal the decision. Kamux considers the decision of the Adjustment Board unfounded, and the company plans to place the issue before the Administrative Court and apply for a rectification of the Board of Adjustment’s ruling.

Background to the decision

The tax reassessment decision was related to a tax audit carried out by the Tax Administration in 2016–2018 concerning Kamux Suomi Oy and the tax years 2012–2016. The main areas of the tax audit were value-added taxes of vehicles imported by third parties and withholding taxes of car couriers. Uusimaa Corporate Tax Office required the company to pay approximately EUR 2.6 million in additional taxes, tax penalties and late payment interests. The company recognized the total tax liability of approximately EUR 2.6 million in full amount in its result for the second quarter of 2018.
