Outbound tax structuring

Businesses are becoming increasingly regional and global, and there is a need for expanding business activity outside of Serbia and establishing a presence in overseas markets.
Expansion often involves various tax and regulatory issues, thus creating a need to structure the investments and operations in a tax efficient manner while achieving the overall business and shareholder’s objectives.
Key tax objectives in an outbound investment include ensuring full compliance with domestic legislation, possibility of using available tax incentives (both local and those existing under Serbian treaty network) and minimizing overall tax cost of the group.
