Awara is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of the Awara Russian Tax Guide by leading Russian tax lawyers Jon Hellevig, Anton Kabakov and Artem Usov.
The Awara Russian Tax Guide is one of a kind, being the only English language book that covers all the main provisions of Russian tax law. This book guides the investor and other interested readers, giving them a thorough understanding of the Russian taxation system as it pertains today.
After the fall of the Soviet Union and the years of anarchy in the 1990s, Russia has been able to develop a taxation system during the last 13 years, which compares favorably with most other countries in the world. This book is intended to give a clear and easy-to-read overview of all the main provisions of the Russian Tax Code. Together with a general overview of all the most important provisions of the law, we deal at a practical level with details affecting investment choices, financing, repatriation of profits and day-to-day financial management issues. The book describes the framework of the taxation system and covers the rights and obligations of both taxpayers and taxation authorities. All the taxes are presented and explained: Corporate Profit Tax, VAT, Personal Income Tax, Social Tax and others.
In this edition, extra emphasis is placed on references to court practice. It is a remarkable feature of Russian tax law that court precedents and court practice to a great extent affect the development of the tax law.
We hope that the Awara Russian Tax Guide will enhance understanding of Russian taxation laws and serve as an excellent reference guide to practical matters for directors, controllers, legal counsels and other managers of companies, as well as students and anybody who wants to know how taxes are levied in Russia.
The introduction to the book presents the astonishing tax revenue and GDP figures of the Russian economic miracle, ushered in by the tax reforms under President Putin over the last 13 years. Read more on this in the press release on Awara’s research on the effects of Putin’s tax reforms 2000 – 2012 on state tax revenue and GDP.
«The book “Awara Russian Tax Guide 2014” describes Russia’s current tax rules in plain language. The structure and order of presentation of the book allow the reader to get a clear idea of the Russian tax system. The book examines the basic themes of the tax laws, as well as certain topical controversial issues arising in judicial practice. In particular, the topic of transfer pricing is elucidated, taking into account the recent changes that have occurred, and explaining conflicting provisions of the new law.»
