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.
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.

NBLO helps Dutch investor win summary judgment in High Court for the sum of GBP 192,000
New Balkans Law Office has acted for Mr Kooter, the individual claimant in legal proceedings recently covered by the British press (e.g., The Evening Standard) and subsequently also in Bulgarian news media (e.g., 24 Chasa).
NBLO has represented Mr Kooter throughout the matter. We assisted with the enforcement of a worldwide freezing order issued by the High Court in London against real estate, bank account and other assets of the defendant situated in Bulgaria. As part of the attempts to preserving assets for enforcing his claim, the claimant also proceeded on the basis of prejudiced against him as a creditor. NBLO additionally acted on various ancillary aspects.
Separately, through one of NBLO’s partners who is dual-qualified as an English barrister, NBLO formed part of Mr Kooter’s UK legal team. In the UK, Mr Kooter won summary judgment for the sum of £192,000, interest and legal costs. The sum awarded was the entire claim by Mr Kooter relating to sums which Ms Radeva had ostensibly offered to invest on his behalf. For a separate part of the claim (approx. €36,000), the High Court was unable to give a summary (effectively, early-stage) judgment on the basis that unlike the investment related claim, the basis of these transfers could not be established without a full investigation of evidence including oral hearings.
