It is hard to imagine what the tax system might look like in ten years from now. Yet one thing is certain: it will be more transparent and definitely more digital.

How Irina is building a better working world

“We support the idea of developing new tax ethical standards both for the corporate sector and for individual taxpayers. The latest initiatives of the Federal Tax Service are actually aimed at creating the right tax-paying culture. They are about increased transparency, which is inevitable given the BEPS 2.0 and OECD action plans, digitization of the tax function, horizontal monitoring, and the taxation of the self-employed.”
