YIN Moot Court Initiative - Ukraine

15 september, 2017

From its inception in 2007, IFA Ukraine historically goes in line with major policies, standards and activities, developed and promoted by its head office – International Fiscal Association. As a part of these efforts, in 2016 IFA Ukraine successfully launched Young IFA Network platform to facilitate communication among young tax professionals, scholars and students. In 2017 IFA Ukraine management decided to add value to YIN activities in Ukraine by establishing local analogue of YIN Moot Court Competition that is being organized annually at IFA Congresses.

YIN Moot Court Format

Ukrainian YIN Moot Court Competition will be focused on the same hypothetical tax case that was considered at the 2017 IFA Rio de Janeiro Congress because of its relevance for our country.

Acting Tax Judge will preside over a hypothetical tax case relating to the legal concept of corporate residence, in particular central management and control or place of effective management, to be argued by Ukrainian young tax professionals, scholars and students, one side representing the Tax Authorities and the other side representing the Taxpayer. At the end of the arguments, the acting Tax Judge will render his/her judgment on the tax case.

The language of the competition will be English.

The fact pattern for the case, the legal issues involved, and the summary of the arguments of the parties will be made available to the applicants before the start of the competition.

Expression of Interest

We invite interested young tax professionals, students and scholars, aged under 35, to participate at the YIN Ukraine Moot Court Competition and to email at motivation letter and CV (in English).

Introductory Workshop

For those interested in the above initiative YIN Ukraine Head Iryna Kalnytska has kindly agreed to hold introductory workshop, explaining the basics of the competition, as well as particular case fabula and the final judgment on the case.

Iryna Kalnytska was one of four lawyers, selected to participate at the YIN Moot Court, which took place within the 70th IFA Congress in Madrid, where, together with her colleague from Argentina, Iryna won the competition on the side of Tax Authorities.

To receive more details on the workshop and the competition please contact us.
