RUSSIAN TAXATION: ALL LEGAL SERVICES FOR INDIVIDUALS AND ENTERPRISES


We provide full legal tax support for individuals and enterprises conducting business in Russia.

In cross-border and Russian deals, our tax lawyers are extensively involved in negotiating of commercial deals and restructuring. Our goal is to structure the deal or enterprise with a minimum tax liability. The core task here is usually tax-efficient profit upstreaming from Russian companies. The other task is tax planning for asset holding and operating companies in Russia. Many clients seek to structure their business activity using flow-through vehicles, therefore we closely look at cross-jurisdictional interplay of taxation status of vehicles and deals. In our tax practice we structure and create entities and documentation set which address a range of tax considerations. We help clients to establish business structures, such as joint ventures, start-up ventures, private equity funds for taxable and tax-exempt investors, offshore funds to achieve tax efficiency.

Russian taxation system and legislation has been developing for the past years to allow foreign businesses and investors to effectively participate in the Russian investment process. However, the process is still going and we are usually asked to stand for the interests of our clients in tax controversies. We take forward the deals related to potential transfer pricing issues, financial products and M&A issues concerning taxation. While our efforts are aimed at resolving any issues through legal advice, detailed contractual base and skillful negotiations, there are cases where we have to resolve the issues in adversarial administrative proceedings or in court.

Where a dispute with the Russian tax authorities is initiated, our litigators assist with representing the clients' interest in Russian tax cases. The tax case can be resolved either in administrative procedure or in court.

For expats requiring legal support on personal taxation in Russia our English-speaking consultants will take on the whole process of Russian personal taxation, which includes:

  • Russian tax planning
  • Russian tax optimisation
  • preparing and reporting of tax returns
  • arranging for Russian taxes payments
