Tax Business Brunch. Tax perspectives 2020: everything new and some unforgettable classics

  • Russia


    We meet the year 2020 as the final phase for a wide range of social and economic strategies for the development of Russia by 2020. This implies that not only the calendar and fiscal years are ending, but that we also are coming to the end of an entire cycle of development for the country, of which the evolution of Tax legislation and judicial practice has been an important part. At this Christmas Tax brunch, we will talk about important topics from the outgoing strategy cycle, which will become even more relevant in the coming year.
