What you get

We will advise you on the specifics of taxation for local representative offices and branches of international companies, as well as for local legal entities, and will help you to develop an optimal financing scheme. We consider multiple factors, such as planned activities, business size, and available tax benefits and incentives.
We analyse existing agreements between the local subsidiary and parent company abroad and provide recommendations on document management for intra-group transactions, considering local legal requirements and international double taxation treaties to mitigate tax risks.
We represent our customers before tax authorities, and can prepare claims on the actions or inaction of tax authorities and objections to acts and opinions of tax audits if necessary. We advise our clients on developing tax-related documentation and draft agreement templates.

Why Schneider group

We take your business objectives into account and form a project team of tax and legal experts with relevant industry experience. If required, we involve in-house experts from related fields (accounting, finance, export and import) to fully assess possible risks and offer practical solutions.
Since 2003, we provide tax consulting services in the regions where SCHNEIDER GROUP operates, relying on the experience and knowledge of our local experts headed by international management. Both the company and standalone experts are often included into local and international legal and tax ratings.
We consider high quality tax support to be a crucial step towards your long-lasting success in a new market. We at SCHNEIDER GROUP specialise in the outsourcing of non-core business functions, such as accounting, payroll calculations and HR administration, so we are interested in long-term collaboration with our clients.
We tailor our services to our customers and flexibly adapt their scope to meet your changing needs: from tax advice and methodological support, to turnkey preparation of necessary documents and communication with regulators on your behalf.
