Wednesday, 11 December 2019 | VAT in Russia. What are the pitfalls for cross-border supplies (9 am ET-US)

Are you up-to-date with the VAT rules changes in Russia? Have you heard about the tax environment and recent trends in tax audits of cross-border services?

Let’s discuss the changes to the VAT rules, their impact on cross-border supplies, as well as practical issues.

EY Russia has developed a new webcast seminar focusing on hidden VAT challenges associated with cross-border transactions, including inter company transactions. 

Specifically, our discussion will cover the following tax aspects to be taken into account in new Russian realities:  

  • New VAT recovery upon services “exported” from Russia and reverse side of the coin
  • Complicated VAT rules upon electronic services and related initiatives
  • How important to keep in mind other tax implications of the deal while pursuing VAT reliefs

Please join EY's panel of lead VAT specialists, as well as Olga Odintsova, one of the Leaders of Russian Indirect tax group, who has a wide experience in assistance on VAT issues in different spheres of clients activity.
