Decision of the Presidium of the Higher Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation No. 15378/04 of June 15, 2005

The tax inspection carried out an on-site tax check of the enterprise for correctness of calculation and payment of taxes for the years 2000-2002. As a result of the check, the enterprises had to pay additional taxes, penalties and fines. According to the inspection, the enterprise did not include in the taxable base monetary resources received from user enterprises for the services of acceptance of waste water with concentration of pollutants higher than permissible level, which reduced the taxable base and resulted in underpayment of taxes.

However, the enterprise regarded the mentioned payment as fines for the violation of the obligation to dispose of the waste water and, therefore, did not include it in the taxable base. In substantiation of its position, the enterprise presented the acts of the previous on-site checks carried out by the inspection where the inspection recognised that additional payment is legally qualified by the enterprise as fines.

The Presidium of the Higher Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation emphasised that additional payment for excessive disposal of waste water and pollutants is a kind of differentiated tariff rate for the services of acceptance and decontamination of hazardous substances in the waste water. This payment is fixed on the basis of an agreement between the parties and is not qualified as fines or another responsibility for the failure to fulfil obligations under the contract. In this case, amounts of additional payment for the disposal of waste water and pollutants is the payment for the rendered services and, therefore, must be included in the taxable base as appropriate taxes. Meanwhile, since the given tax violation was revealed in the course of a repeated tax check only, with the tax body failing to recognise it as such initially, the Presidium agreed to the conclusion of the judges of the first and appellate instances exempting the enterprise from the fines in this case.
