Tax risks and tax authorities’ claims have a significant impact on business operations, and often the very existence of business in Belarus. This problem is particularly crucial because the Belarusian tax laws are full of gaps and ambiguities and, moreover, are constantly amended. As a result, some officials of the tax authorities often impose unlawful requirements and draw unfaithful conclusions when performing tax audits.
We provide the following services in this area:
- Tax advice in complicated legal situations (e.g. legal reclassification of a transaction by tax authorities, tax consequences and recommendations on optimization of the organizational structure of business)
- Pre-trial settlement of tax disputes (advice on contentious business and tax accounting issues which the tax authorities regard as violation of law, assessment of accounting and tax compliance)
