Mikhail Kazantsev: capital amnesty is an outreach to the business community

Russia’s Federal Law “On Individuals’ Voluntarily Declaring Assets and Accounts (Deposits) with Banks and on Amending Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation” - a law broadly known as the “Capital Amnesty Law” - was adopted on June 8. Under the amnesty, taxpayers are able to declare their foreign assets by filing a special declaration with Russia’s tax authorities. Meanwhile, the state guarantees a waiver of tax proceedings related to the assets declared. Mikhail Kazantsev, a member of the taskforce charged with developing the draft law and a partner at Egorov, Puginsky, Afanasiev & Partners, whose experts deal with applying the capital amnesty and act as public business ombudsmen, spoke with RAPSI about what had come out of it and how it might operate in practice. arrow
