Case from IT lawyers

The Stalirov&Co team helped a Ukrainian IT company to avoid paying the withholding tax in Japan

An IT company must pay withholding tax at a rate of 20.42% for the provision of services in Japan. . And this is in addition to taxes in Ukraine: on profits, income tax for employees and a single tax for contractors, VAT, tax on dividends for founders, and royalties.

Therefore, it was crucial to find a mechanism that would help to avoid paying withholding tax in foreign countries.

To do this, IT lawyers used the procedure for exemption from payment.

  • We received an Application Form for Income Tax Convention for IT services from a Japanese client and filled it out.
  • After that, we received a residence certificate for an IT company, translated it into English, and attested it with an apostille.
  • Our team submitted documents to the tax authorities in Japan. An IT company was exempted from an additional tax burden based on an international agreement to avoid double taxation between Ukraine and Japan.

Who are we, and how do we generate solutions?

  • We prepare a tax burden plan and develop a tax minimization plan for already operating companies before starting an IT business. 
  • The Stalirov&Co team accompanies businesses entering the international market and helps organize processes with the lowest costs for taxes and fees.
  • Our law firm has gained experience applying conventions to avoid double taxation in the UK, Estonia, Cyprus, and the USA. We know which countries are profitable to work with.
  • We monetize IT products in countries with royalty exemptions.
  • IT lawyers accompany investment and credit processes in the company and analyze their risks. Our team prepares documents for obtaining loans from banks.
