  • Acquisition of goods, works and services in subsurface use: Q&A.

    Kazakhstan's Government continues its policy on attracting the local and foreign investors to develop country's rich mineral reserves. For coordinated working environment, except political stability, investment climate, investors also need well-developed and reasonable legal system.
  • Court Practice and Tax Risks for Subsurface Users in Kazakhstan

    The tax legislation is one of the most dynamically developing areas of law in Kazakhstan. Since the beginning of its formation the taxation system has suffered numerous changes due to both the continuous process of simplification and improvement of administrative procedures, elimination of gaps and ambiguities, the need to regulate new activities, encouragement of the development of certain sectors, and the fundamental change of conditions of taxation and codification of legislation.
  • M&A in Kazakhstan

    M & A transactions in Kazakhstan, as they are usually defined in international practice, when two giant companies merge into one global firm, do not take place in the country. Rather, it is a method of the entrance to the Kazakhstan market of foreign corporations, which make it through the purchase of a local company. Today, in connection with the development of special economic zones that provide attractive tax and customs benefits, the interest in the establishment of industrial production facilities there increased. They are also carried out by M & A transactions.
  • Gas industry in Kazakhstan

    Kazakhstan's key industrial sectors are oil and gas, mining, electricity, transport and communications, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. These sectors were recognised as development priorities in the Government Programme for Accelerated Industrial-Innovative Development (2010 ‚Äď 2014) (the "Programme"), the aim of which is to diversify the Kazakh economy and modernise industry. Therefore, in 2012, the major changes to the gas sector in Kazakhstan were a result of the Law on Gas and Gas Supply (the "Law on Gas") and appointment of KazTransGas JSC as the sole national operator.
