Foreign tax relief
Residents of Russia are entitled to a foreign tax credit against their Russian tax liabilities if provided for by a relevant DTT. The credit cannot exceed the amount of tax payable in Russia.
For a foreign tax credit claim, an individual is obligated to provide the Russian Tax Authorities with supporting documentation in order for the credit for foreign taxes paid in the other country to be approved. This should be submitted to the Russian Tax Authorities along with the tax declaration within three years after the reporting period.
Russia intends to change or even terminate DTT with some countries if theses countries do not agree to increase the rates of dividends and interest stipulated in their treaties with Russia.
Below is the list of countries with which Russia currently has effective DTTs:
|Belarus||Korea, Democratic People's Republic||Slovenia|
