Reimbursement (compensation) of value added tax in Ukraine

The payment of value added tax (VAT) is a transfer to the state. budget for the difference between tax liability and credit. If this difference is negative, then the taxpayer can exercise the right to budget VAT refunds. Although VAT compensation takes place automatically, in practice, difficulties often arise.

How is VAT compensation proceeding with the participation of Prikhodko & Partners tax lawyers?

The key to success in this case is careful work with documents.Andrey Prikhodko

First of all, pay attention to three points:

filling out an application from a taxpayer in the form D4;


preparation of a tax return;


calculation of the amount of compensation.


For your information! The procedure for budgetary VAT refunds is regulated by Article 200 of the Tax Code of Ukraine.

In particular, it defines the conditions under which the payer can claim compensation:

  • the amount of VAT was actually (in money) transferred to suppliers of goods / works / services or to the state budget;
  • it does not exceed the registration limit at the time of filing the declaration.

Important! Overestimation of VAT refunds may result in a penalty of 25% of the amount of such overstatement.

When preparing documents, it is necessary to take into account the fact that the amount of compensation may go (subparagraph “b” of Article 200.4 of the Tax Code):

  • to offset tax debt (fines, penalties) or other payments;
  • to the taxpayer’s account;
  • to pay off monetary obligations;
  • against a tax credit;
  • in several directions from the above.

The documents are submitted to the tax authority, and on their basis, the Register of applications for the return of the amount of budget compensation is formed. Funds are paid in chronological order based on the date of receipt of the documents.

Important! If a refusal from the tax authority to compensate for VAT is received, the lawyers of Prikhodko & Partners are ready to appeal against it in an administrative or judicial procedure.
