Tax Law

Tax law is one of the most complex areas of law practice in Russia.

Every field presents their own complexities, but tax lawyers undoubtedly face real challenges when they are called upon to handle huge amounts of money, thousands of pages of latest regulations, state authorities, court cases, news, media and press, very often on very short notices and with full responsibility. Deadlines are always very tight for tax lawyers as other lawyers and clients quite often tend to consult them at the very last moment.

Tax lawyers’ work environment is special as all governments, including the Russian government, impose more and more control over taxation, demanding greater financial transparency. Our tax team monitors all global and local tax changes so that their understanding of the practical implications for our clients’ businesses remains as up-to-date as possible.

I highly esteem my tax team colleagues as they are financial experts and legal counsels at the same time and their contribution is required in practically all fields of business activities. Every significant contract, every employment or dismissal, every major corporate decision needs to be double-checked by a tax law expert.

The range of tax law practice is very broad as tax experts support accounting operations, conduct audits, are involved in M&A and cross-border transactions, as well as dispute resolution. They also prepare consultations on all type of taxes for both legal entities and individuals.

If you need help with a tax matter, you cannot go wrong if you put your queries to Accountor where our tax lawyers will be pleased to put their 20 years’ experience at your service and show you that they can be your trusted counsels.

Our tax lawyers participate in close co-operation with Accountor Russia’s other outsourcing departments in tax audits, prepare all types of tax consultancy, tax refund filings as well as devise optimization structures. Our tax litigators represent clients in all phases of tax disputes and successfully defend clients in major disputes.

As one of the many cases won by our tax lawyers, we can cite, for instance, a leading European company operating in the property and construction industry involved in a VAT-related dispute with tax authorities. Our tax litigators represented this client in court which awarded a full VAT refund of RUB 200 million. This client then went on requesting further consultation on taxation matters.

Another example of the successful work done by our tax lawyers is the planning and implementation of a new corporate structure (reorganisation) for an international company with 5 production locations in Russia and thousands of employees. Our tax lawyers played a major role in the planning and implementation stages of this project.

Accountor operates in many countries where we really help multinational businesses to devise and implement appropriate tax strategies for their cross-border transactions.
