Partner Maria Semenova manages the tax and TP departments at AO Mazars. Semenova oversees a team of nine other professionals. Eight team members work in compliance, and two specialise in disputes.
New additions to the team in the last year include a tax manager, a senior tax consultant and four junior tax consultants.
In May 2017, senior tax manager Alexander Simonov, senior tax consultant Liudmila Lazareva and junior tax consultant Sergei Sychev, advised a distributor of components for energy equipment. The company imports significant amounts of equipment from overseas, and the client needed to prepare for notification on controlled transactions and disclose information in relation to shipment of individual items, which was missing in its accounting system. The team devised a coding system to ensure swift grouping of items rather than manually devising the lists, ensuring significant time-savings for the client's future processes.
A client said AO Mazars strengths were its "professional expertise, flexibility, fast reactivity". "Mazars has been helping us with transfer pricing matters for several years and we are thankful to them for their great support," the client said.
