The Russian Federal Tax Service is currently consulting on an amended list of jurisdictions that do not have adequate tax information exchange with Russia, which affects the Russian tax exemption for controlled foreign company profits. Under Russian law, an exemption from tax is provided for the profits of CFCs meeting certain conditions, unless the CFC is resident in a listed jurisdiction. The amended list includes 126 jurisdictions that have either not entered into an agreement for information exchange with Russia, or have not responded adequately to information exchange requests. The changes include the removal of the British Virgin Islands and South Korea from the list.
