In particular, Iryna paid attention to the new rules of taxation for non-residents, which made the presence of the latter in Ukraine much more difficult without a permanent establishment. Thus, among the сhanges the non-residents should already take into account – a) from July 1, 2021, tax audits of non-residents conducting their commercial activities through permanent establishments in Ukraine will be allowed for carrying out; b) by January 1, 2021, non-residents operating in Ukraine, including through permanent establishments, are obliged to register in Ukrainian tax authorities.

Iryna also discussed the changes in application of  Double Tax Treaties and introduction of the “principal purpose” test.

In certain cases, a taxpayer will have to prove that the principal purpose of a transaction is not tax evasion, otherwise, the company will have to pay the 15% WHT
