BEPS (Base Erosion and Profit Shifting)

In September 2013, during the G20 Summit in Saint Petersburg, Russia announced its plans to implement principles included into the OECD Action Plan on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS). Currently, Russian regulators are attempting to implement BEPS Actions in the Russian tax law.

Companies having an international element in their structure or performing cross-border transactions are advised to comply with OECD recommendations and actions on BEPS when planning their operations or structuring business, even if certain OECD measures are not included in the domestic law of Russia or other counties, in which the group operates or intends to operate. The fact is that the countries that fail to implement the proposed measures for combating international tax fraud will be further subject to pressure from international institutions and countries they partner with in trade.

FATCA

The FATCA initiative is becoming a disruptive breakthrough in finance. Russian financial institutes now have a new task of identifying US taxpayers and transferring their data to the IRS. Never before have Russian financial institutes had a challenge of identifying their clients’ tax residence. In addition, the FATCA compliance trend does not strike off an obligation to comply with Russian requirements as well.

PwC Russia has been working on FATCA-related engagements since 2013. We have a proven track record of completing over 50 FATCA projects in Russia involving major Russian top-5 banks. We are proud to provide our clients with optimal solutions that allow us to comply successfully with Russian and US regulations.

CRS

Russia undertook to participate in the implementation of the Common Reporting Standards (CRS) ensuring automated information exchange. Therefore, Russian financial institutes will unavoidably have to adjust internal processes for identifying foreign taxpayers and filing respective reports. To implement CRS, Russia must adopt a set of local regulations. Still, the country will need professional expertise in CRS in order to apply the CRS legislation to the fullest extent.

CRS may be attractive not only for banks and financial institutes, but also for individuals using their foreign accounts, investing into foreign financial assets or having personal holding structures. Individuals must understand what information on their holdings and operations will be reported to which countries.
