When speaking about analysis conducted by tax authorities before tax audits, Alexander Grigoriev defined the scope of tax officials’ authorities at this stage, solutions for taxpayers, their rights and obligations. Using real life examples he gave recommendations on how to act and how to prepare evidence at the pre-audit stage to prove that your position is appropriate.

“The workshop has gathered not only a very large but also very motivated audience. We examined tax audit programmes and discussed effective and ineffective defence strategies. We exchanged opinions on different cases. We are very grateful to everyone who attended the workshop. We will be glad to meet again at the next workshops to discuss the most significant tax issues,” Galina Akchurina said.
