Indirect Tax Services

Kazakhstan VAT legislation presents taxpayers with some of the biggest challenges they will face while operating in Kazakhstan. While the basic principles of VAT in Kazakhstan broadly adhere to those found in traditional European VAT systems, there are important peculiarities in the application of Kazakhstan VAT. Among these are the special VAT provisions under product sharing agreements which will have significant implications for not only the subsurface users but also their subcontractors and customers.

The nature of the Kazakhstan legislation means that VAT will impact your business, certainly in terms of cash flow, and often from a profitability standpoint. Proper VAT planning is essential to managing this impact.
