Taxation of legal persons
We advise private as well as public companies in matters concerning income tax, value added tax and other taxes. We evaluate the applicability of various taxes related to business transactions. Our tax consultants provide comprehensive assistance in solving clients’ tax problems, offering clear and constructive ways for tax planning and tax strategy development.
Taxation of private individuals
We provide our clients with integrated solutions. We advise clients in the preparation of income tax declarations as well as interpretation of different provisions regulating tax exemptions and tax incentives. For sole proprietors, we arrange accounting, prepare income tax declarations, and communicate with the tax authorities.
Clients, who are expanding their business beyond Baltic borders, need specific knowledge of the tax regulations in the destination country. Rimess’ operations in the Baltic States give us an access to the international expertise and allow advising the client on the minimisation of tax risks arising from conducting business in a foreign tax jurisdiction. We also consult foreign investors in finding an optimum group structure and form of enterprises in the Baltic States.
We identify the risks in different taxation areas (incl., corporate income tax, value added tax, payroll taxes, transfer pricing, transactions with non-residents). We prepare a report summarising any deficiencies and problems discovered and make proposals for their elimination.
We advise the management bodies of local and multinational groups of companies in issues concerning transfer prices of intra-group transactions and, if necessary, in the preparation of the relevant documentation in accordance with the local regulations.
We advise foreign clients in issues concerning the refund of value added tax paid in the Baltics, and Baltic clients – in the refund of value added tax paid in the EU member states. If necessary, we carry out these procedures on behalf of the client.
We render VAT fiscal representation services to foreign clients.
Training related to taxation topics
We organise training in tax issues of current importance. Upon clients’ requests, we also organise training in topics interesting to clients.
We serve clients in Latvian, Estonian, Lithuanian, English and Russian both orally and in writing.
Our competent tax consultants have provided services for over 15 years. The services are rendered in co-operation with different departments (corporate finance, legal advisory, financial accounting), which allows offering the best integrated solutions to our clients.
Grant Thornton Rimess Baltic has developed significant regional competence in the Baltics and Scandinavian countries. Our co-operation with international associations enables us to offer the services required for doing business on local and international markets.
