Helping you manage your wealth and investments

Helping you manage your wealth and investments

Control exercised over compliance by individuals with tax and currency laws has toughened in Russia over the past couple of years. At the international level, the disclosure of company beneficiaries and the exchange of intergovernmental tax and financial information has also come to the fore.

The risks arising require close attention and demand that decisions be taken with due consideratioin paid to the tax and legal risks as well as more conventional business objectives and investment strategies, in order to protect assets and utilise estate planning opportunities. These processes may also make relocation to other countries, and the obtaining of foreign residency, more complicated.

KPMG experience

Our KPMG team in Russia has extensive experience advising private entities with complex business and asset structure profiles. Our team – comprising more than 30 tax and legal professionals – works in close cooperation with experts from our foreign offices (including Switzerland, the UK, the US, Cyprus, Malta, and the BVI) and other KPMG groups and functions to meet, to the greatest possible extent, the challenges our clients may face.
