Tax Consulting

Russian tax laws are perhaps most often subjected to amendments as compared to other areas of law: not only taxpayers but also tax authorities frequently have no time to respond to the innovations – a situation that results in a dispersion of interpretations of law and, consequently, a growing number of tax disputes.

VEDA’s competent assistance in the area of taxation will help to optimise the tax accounting process, minimise the risk of administrative proceedings for tax offences and successfully settle any conflicts in courts.
