A Russian court has thrown out most of the tax claims filed against the
British government during a diplomatic row between the two countries, when
Russia forced the closure of some of the
regional offices, claiming they were illegal, and tax inspectors filed claims
against the UK cultural arm.
The court decision came after high-level ministerial contact between the two
countries resumed and Britain this month sent a new ambassador to Moscow,
The Independent reports.
‘The court recognised as invalid a decision from a tax inspection in the part
where it filed income tax and value added tax claims,’ the spokeswoman for the
Moscow Arbitration Court, said.
The British Council, which had lodged an appeal against the fines, said it
was satisfied with the court’s decision on the tax claims and hoped to expand
its activities in Russia.
