Leading specialists of Russian and international companies traditionally consider the most relevant and important topics of the industry.
This year, the topic of the opening session was the digital transformation - participants discussed the effectiveness of modern “robots”, the importance of building an effective system of business analytics in a group of companies, and reviewed relevant tax IT solutions. Further, representatives of the Federal Tax Service told about the main tax risks of holding structures and groups of companies, talked about deoffshorization and transfer pricing.

KIAP Partner and Head of Tax practice Andrey Zuykov took part in the game and conducted a training examination of a witness, a business representative, together with a colleague from the Federal Tax Service. During the business game, the participants learned what and how they would be asked during a real examination, trained to answer correctly and safely, and also heard recommendations on how to defend themselves and when it’s better to make no reply.
The second day of the event was devoted to the issues of interaction of a group of companies with banks and forecasts about the credit policy of banks in 2020, IT security issues, business structuring and landmark arbitration rulings in tax disputes, as well as a review of the situation and main trends in the labor market.
