Corporate tax advisory services

Doing business in Kazakhstan is always associated with a number of tax issues:

  • Are taxes paid in full?
  • Are all requirements of tax legislation complied with?
  • Are all tax risks detected?
  • Is the company ready for an upcoming tax audit?

Kazakhstan tax legislation contains a number of provisions whose correct interpretation affects the amount of tax liabilities and the outcome of a tax audit or legal proceedings between taxpayers and tax authorities. 

Additional tax liabilities and administrative penalties accrued as a result of tax audits lead to an outflow of the taxpayer’s cash. In addition, in certain cases provision is made for the criminal liability of company officials for violation of tax laws.  In order to prevent such risks, companies need to identify in advance the issues of concern and take the necessary actions to eliminate them.

Ignoring the tax consequences at the planning stages, signing contracts, developing internal policies and procedures, usually leads to tax risks and additional charges during tax audits.
