Webinar. Intra-group investment financing: effective instruments and mechanisms of protection against risks

  • Russia



    Eversheds Sutherland continues a series of corporate and tax webinars giving the latest trends of the legal and tax aspects of doing business in Russia.

    In the context of the external economic shock caused by COVID-19, the operative liquidity level in most sectors is reduced, which not only hinders the achievement of strategic objectives, but also makes it harder to conduct ongoing economic activities. It is already clear that many companies will soon face an issue to raise new capital to continue the development of their business in Russia.

    In recent years, taking into account the effect of international sanctions, intra-group investment financing has been a popular way for businesses to attract investments, complete projects, and achieve its business goals. It has also contributed to the emergence of new instruments and structures within both civil and tax law to encourage the use of such activities.

    At this corporate and tax webinar, attorneys from Eversheds Sutherland will tell you which of the new intra-group financing instruments to choose, taking into account risks and opportunities associated with each of them.
