  • New standards on the unjustified tax benefit included in the tax code

    The Federal Tax Service of Russia issued Letter â„– CA-4-7/ 6152 @ of 16.08.2017, in which it clarified to its subordinate tax authorities the application of new Art. 54.1 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation "Limits on the Exercise of Rights in Calculating the Tax Base and (or) the Amount of Tax, Levy, Insurance Contributions", which was included in the Tax Code of the Russian Federation by Federal Law â„– 163-FZ of 18.07.2017.
  • Information law for company participants – the search for a balance of interests

    At the present time, in various legal relationships there exists the acute problem of observing a balance of interests concerning the parties involved in these legal relationships, their legal rights, and their mutual economic needs. Judicial practice, when considering disputes between these kinds of parties, takes into consideration not only the formal requirements of legislation, but also the real economic and legal goals and interests of the participants.
  • What businessmen should know about legislative changes with major and interested transactions?

    It is well known that before making significant managerial decisions, the general director must obtain approval from the shareholders or the board of directors. Apart from that, if a director is personally interested in entering into a transaction, approval is also required to proceed with the transaction. In the absence of such an approval, the transaction can be challenged and, in certain circumstances, invalidated. In order to minimize such risks and to eliminate legal uncertainty for the parties to the transaction, the rules governing major transactions and interested transactions must be sufficiently clear. Previously, however, the application of these rules was associated with a large number of controversial legal issues, which were finally solved as a result of the legislative amendments, which will enter into force on January 1, 2017. According to the new amendments, the distinction between major and non-major transactions has been delineated more clearly, parties have been allowed more flexibility in relation to approving transactions, the burdensome obligation to obtain prior approval of interested transactions has been abrogated, and finally the procedure for challenging transactions in question has been made much more complex. Overall, the changes should have a positive influence on business, as they contribute to the establishment of firm legal certainty in this area of the law.
