Tax trends in Russia: Anticrisis Measures and More

Live webinar for English-speaking tax professionals

Live webinar for English-speaking tax professionals

The Russian tax system continues to evolve, with the current situation triggering even more changes to tax rules.

The economic downturn and change in the business environment requires multinational groups to revise their plans both domestically in Russia and more widely internationally.

Russian government support measures for multinational companies may not be sufficient to mitigate the negative effects of any crisis, meaning companies may need to find additional financing for their Russian subsidiaries.

Intercompany cross-border charges remain the key focus of the tax authorities during tax audits. These require careful structuring and the preparation of documented defence files.

Join us in our live webinar on 15 July where our leading KPMG tax experts will overview Russia’s regulations and tax practice to identify the key changes and provide you with the essential updates.

The webinar will be moderated by Nina Goulis, KPMG in Russia and CIS Tax Partner and Consumer Industrial Markets Tax Lead. Nina has more than 17 years of experience advising MNCs in Russia. Our other KPMG experts will include Natalia Valkovskaya, Head of Transfer Pricing in Russia; Ekaterina Morina, a Tax Director dealing with MNCs; Anastasia Mikhailova, a Tax Director in Transfer Pricing, and Anton Grebenchuk, a VAT Director.
