CONTROLLED FOREIGN COMPANIES Draft Law dd. 26.08.2014
*EXECUTIVE SUMMARY* Under the label “de-offshorization” Russia is currently reviewing several amendments to its tax laws which are expected to take effect from 1 January 2015. The key element of the tax initiative was – at least initially – the introduction of CFC rules intended to discourage the artificial deferral of income tax payments through the use of off-shore companies in tax planning structures. The CFC rules are intended to apply not only to foreign companies under the taxpayer’s direct control, but also to indirect control through trusts, fiduciary arrangements and similar. In order to make the rules effective the initiative requires Russian tax residents to disclose relevant holdings. In the more recent versions of the draft law the obligation to disclose foreign assets has been disjoined from the CFC rules.
