First Instance Judgment

VerdictThe taxing officer finds USD59,411 a reasonable amount representing the cost reasonably incurred by the Applicant in prosecuting their case.Given that the above figure is ordinarily considered a source of income, VAT has to be leveled on it at a rate of 18 per cent. That said, 18 per cent of USD59,411 works out to be USD10,694. Therefore, in total this Bill is taxed at USD70,185 only. It is so taxed.
