Vard faces additional tax claims in Brazil

Vard Holdings Limited has received a tax claim for FY2010 from tax authorities in Brazil, and is evaluating the need for provisions for additional tax cost.

In a matter relating to transfer pricing of goods and services delivered from the Group’s Norwegian entities to Vard Niterói in FY2010, and tax treatment thereof, Vard says it has been notified that Brazilian authorities have concluded a tax assessment resulting in an additional tax claim of approximately NOK 200 million including penalties and interest accrued.

In a statement on its website Vard says that the diverging assessment originates from “conflicting Brazilian transfer pricing rules, which have only been aligned as from FY2013.”

“The Company will file an appeal against the ruling, and no payments are expected to be made before a final conclusion of the case, which may take several years. No Provisions have previously been made for this claim as such unfavorable assessment was deemed highly unlikely, based on legal and tax advice received by the Company. The Company is currently reassessing the probabilities for the outcome of the tax dispute, and the need for provisions in its financial accounts,” reads a statement by Vard.

Vard added that further details will be disclosed latest when the Company announces the unaudited results for the third quarter ending 30 September 2014
