The definition of tax minimization 

Tax minimization refers to a legal conduct through which businessmen can analyse the taxation system applicable in a country and assessing the ways that can reduce (sometimes, with an important outcome) the amount paid for taxes.

Strategies to reduce the tax burden in Russia 

One of the most common ways for tax minimization in Russia refers to charitable donations. Although the taxpayers, natural persons or legal entities, are still required to pay taxes, the level is lowered by operating this type of transactions by collaborating with a charitable entity (state or private owned), which has a lower administrative cost. 
Another way through which companies operating in Russia can minimize the amount paid for taxes is by increasing the level of tax deductions. Some of the simplest ways in which this procedure can be performed in Russia refers to the gifts offered to company’s employees or to its business partners.
At the same time, investments which take the form of reparations of Russian properties can also be included in this category. Our team of Russian company incorporation representatives can provide more details in this sense. 
Investors can also reduce the level of taxation by investing in municipal bonds which are exempt of taxes, as well as establishing a retirement investment plan (for this type of contract, several taxes do not apply). 
Businessmen, who are interested in receiving further information on the tax minimization procedures applicable in Russia, can address to our team of Russian company formation agents for assistance.
