Time: 11:38am (EDT)

Russia has joined BEPS initiatives and automatic international exchange of information.

Accounting and Reporting in Russia

Andreas Bitzi - Quality Partners
Date: September 30, 2020

Accounting in Russia is, at first sight, similar to accounting in other countries. However, at a closer look there are many factors that actually differ significantly from what you would expect in many other countries. For instance, the prevailing concept is form over substance; documents play an immense role. Furthermore, traditionally accounting records would be kept solely to satisfy tax authorities, rather than using it as an internal controls measure.

This short webinar will give you a short superficial insight into Russian accounting & reporting.

International Tax for the Growing Business

December 5, 2019
Patrick McCormick, JD - Culhane Meadows PLLC

Businesses of all sizes and types are increasingly presented opportunities to engage in international transactions in a growing global market.

  • Two general realms from an American perspective: foreign-domiciled businesses engaged in United States transactions and United States-domiciled businesses engaged in foreign transactions.
  • A threshold issue for foreign entities is their entity classification for United States purposes.

Patrick J. McCormick is a partner with Culhane Meadows.  He earned his J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School in 2008, and his LL.M. from New York University School of Law in 2009.
