It contains similar findings – implementation Oil is taxable at a rate of 18%. Reinforcing its position, the inspection also referred to the Resolution of the Federal District of the Moscow 31.08.2007 KA-A40/6886-07 rendered on the dispute, which dealt with similar legal rules. In this case, the court concluded that the agreements with the governments of Moldova, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia, grant exemptions from paragraph 1 of Art. 164 of the Tax Code, resulting in a tax rate of 0% VAT on export of natural gas in these countries do not apply.
