The Astana Tax Working Group meets to discuss recent updates to legislative amendments and applications to tax legislation. The Group provides an opportunity for tax specialists and experts to discuss a variety of topics, including treatment of losses, taxation of fixed assets, exemptions from VAT, changes in subsurface-user taxation, and international taxation provisions.
The members of the Astana Tax Working Group come from both corporate and diplomatic backgrounds. The Group’s proximity to government agencies and committees engaged in tax policy is a particular asset. Members have developed and submitted recommendations to the Government through the AmCham Inter-Ministerial VAT Refunds Working Group that assisted in developing a schedule of VAT repayments for the energy industry.
