OUR TAX PRACTICE
CROSS-BORDER TRANSACTIONS ADVISING
We have extensive experience in advising our clients on all kinds of cross-border transactions such as profit repatriations, intercompany transactions, management services, royalties, franchising, licensing and other IPR related transactions, transfer pricing, and secondment agreements. We are frequently asked to give advice for international tax planning and international tax structuring issues involving two or several jurisdictions.
WEALTH MANAGEMENT & TAXATION STATUS
We advise high-net-worth individuals in structuring their international wealth management and expats in their Russian taxation status and its implication to other jurisdictions.
Due to the peculiarities of Russian tax administration practices we have gained extensive experience in tax litigation. Corporations are frequently involved in tax disputes and tax controversies with the authorities that require assistance from professional lawyers and auditors. We have a proven track record of successfully protecting our clients’ interests against unwarranted tax claims. This is why our tax practitioners include some of the most experienced tax litigators in Russia. All emerging tax disputes have to be taken seriously, for if the tax authorities are not dealt with appropriately and promptly, then the matters may escalate. It is advisable to engage professional tax specialists early on. – Even better to engage BRICS Consulting for current tax advice and tax compliance services, for this way we will reduce the likelihood of tax disputes by providing professional advice and proactive support.
AFFILIATION WITH AWARA ACCOUNTING
Some people consider that there is an advantage in choosing a law firm instead of an accountancy firm for tax advice – and some consider it is vice versa. But with Awara the client is not faced with an either/or choice. Thanks to our accounting department you get both the practical experience of accountants and auditors in day-to-day tax compliance issues and the more fundamental juridical approach of the specialized tax lawyers. And the lawyers guarantee that the tax advice is considered in the framework of all other legal issues. The lawyers ensure that all the other business issues are identified in the complex advice to a tax concern.
