The Cabinet will allow the taxpayers to perform the following actions for VAT compliance purposes:
- register online and review all relevant information published by the tax authorities;
- file VAT returns and submit them to the tax authorities;
- access requisites of the currency bank account in the Treasury of Ukraine on which VAT liabilities should be paid;
- review the reporting forms and other supplementary information;
- submit appeals to tax notifications-decisions issued by the tax authorities;
