About the event

Over the past year, key decisions by European countries and Russia have set the scene for a significant impact on companies and multinational enterprises investing in Russia.

The mutual blacklisting between the EU and Russia, along with the suspension of the Double Tax Treaty, adds layers of complexity to potential tax consequences. The outcomes of this legislative "race" conceal various risks for the diligent decision-makers within companies.

Navigating the complex world of international taxation, our upcoming discussion will probe into critical topics affecting group finances on both the German and Russian corporate sides.

Join us for a comprehensive exploration of the evolving tax landscape that demands your attention and strategic foresight.

In our event, SCHNEIDER GROUP experts will be shedding light on the following agenda:


  • German Tax Haven Act
  • Changes in Russian tax legislation affecting intragroup transactions including TP issues
  • Suspension of German-Russian Double Taxation Treaty
