International and EU action against “harmful tax practices” is extending the concept of abuse of law. Hitherto legal structures are increasingly moved into a grey area. The loss of legal certainty resulting from this for tax payers is not merely a side effect of governments´ desire for more flexibility in defending their tax bases and finding ways to increase tax collection. Indeed it is intended as a deterrent for taxpayers and their advisers.
The International Tax Forum on "International Tax Strategies: an outlook on current worldwide developments and the Russian perspective" took place on Thursday 19 September 2013 at Park Inn Pulkovskaya Hotel in St Petersburg, in Russia.
