International standards and local insight help the Firm's Tax Practice offer legal advice on tax planning and tax risk management to clients in tax disputes in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
Our lawyers also specialize in international tax issues that may arise in cross-border or investment transactions. Having strong links with leading law firms in the Netherlands, UK, Germany, USA, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Cyprus and other jurisdictions, we offer useful solutions for organizing holding, financial and trade structures.
With each client we build long-term partnerships based on clear understanding of the client's business and its strategic goals.
Being one of the Firm's key practices, in Russia we advise our clients on tax aspects in Russian and cross-border deals, provide on-going tax advice to clients' businesses and protect them in disputes with tax authorities.
We rely on skills and knowledge obtained abroad, deep insight into Russian specifics and court practice, and international client service standards.
Our lawyers are innovative and capable of offering ambitious and outside-the-box solutions. Importantly, they are ready to implement these solutions and, if needed, to protect them before any authority. Inside our practice, there is no division into different types of taxes. This helps each professional comprehensively assess any tax issue.
The liberalization of national legislation and development of a business environment in Belarus paved the way for the growing number of complex cross-border M&A transactions and investment and finance deals which require sophisticated international and domestic tax advice. Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners Tax Practice in Minsk offers highly qualified and comprehensive tax advice helping clients to adapt their business to the developing but still imperfect national tax legislation.
We offer in-depth advice on how to do business in Belarus efficiently and deal with Belarusian contractors, help resolve challenges and settle disputes with tax authorities.
