What happened in 2012 and what can we expect in 2013 in the area of tax law?

Tuesday 27 November 2012

08:45 — 10:45 (2 Hours)

New Balkans Law Office and Anelia Tatarova, a tax attorney, are co-organising the presentation:
This will take place at 08:45 – 10:45 (in Bulgarian, followed by a presentation in English between 11:00 and 12:45) on the 27th November, 2012 in the “Plovdiv” Hall at the World Trade Center/Interpred Sofia, will provide a comprehensive guide for business leaders on the complex area of tax law.

WHY ATTEND?

Innovative and robust tax solutions are becoming increasingly important to our clients: whether they are domestic or international. The area of tax legislation and practice in Bulgaria has grown in complexity, and with further developments in the coming year, we have decided to jointly offer this presentation free of charge to business leaders.

The presentation will offer an overview of tax law developments in 2012 and upcoming changes in 2013. The analysis of future developments will ensure participants will be prepared for the coming year.

Of particular focus will be the connection between EU law developments and tax and Kamen Shoylev of NBLO will introduce the role of the CJEU and how EU law can be relied on in defence of tax rights, with Anelia Tatarova detailing the significance of recent Bulgarian references and domestic decisions in the area of tax with EU law significance.

UPDATES FOLLOWING THE EVENT

All participants in the seminar will receive information on tax rulings of interest delivered by the Court of Justice of the European Union (“CJEU”) between the presentation date and the end of 2012. Further, all participants will be notified of any changes in the final versions of the domestic tax statutes introduced between the date of the presentation and the date of the coming into force of the legislation discussed.

A win in an insurance exclusion clause dispute at the Supreme Court

NBLO's dispute resolution team, led by Yordan Neshkov, secured a success against a large Bulgarian insurer in a claim brought on behalf of a UK national, who had lost her property in a fire. The insurer had refused to pay out under the insurance, on the grounds that a widely drawn clause in its general terms allegedly excused it from paying whenever there was a breach of building regulations, even if (as was accepted in this case) this breach was invisible externally, could not be discovered through reasonable investigation and was not caused by the insured. NBLO had good reasons to argue that this position was unsupported in the Bulgarian Insurance Code or civil law generally and persuaded the Supreme Cassation Court to back it. This is covered more fully in an article on our website.
