The most important information about tax practices in 1,5 minutes by Ilya Rusyaev
Why do 98% of field tax audits result in additional tax charges and fines?
of audits result in additional charges.
66 million
Average amount of additional charges for companies: 66 million rubles ($ 880 000).
According to open statistics for the year 2023 provided by the Federal Tax Service (FTS):
The key reason for such statistics is that the FTS carefully selects companies and conducts a thorough analysis before a field tax audit. The selection of companies is carried out by the pre-check analysis department. The preanalysis involves a significant work, including analysing financial and economic activities, suppliers and contractors, checking the company in all available databases, obtaining documents from the company and its counterparties, obtaining documents from credit and financial organisations, analysing these documents and other information available for the FTS.

The analysis of the company's solvency, assets, management and ultimate beneficiaries is conducted.
13,5 million
Average amount of additional charges for individual entrepreneurs: 13,5 million rubles ($ 180 000).

A FTA is a lengthy and costly process. It is conducted when the tax authority understands the approximate amount that will be recovered (including via bankruptcy and holding controlling persons subsidiary liable) and the violations that led to it. Essentially, its implementation is the final stage for gathering additional evidence and preparing the field tax audit report. Based on the results of the FTA, a decision is made, which indicates the final amount of additional tax charges.

If a decision to conduct a field tax audit is made, it is practically impossible to avoid additional charges and fines. However, it is possible to reduce their amount and protect the management from being held subsidiarily or criminally liable.
Most likely, you are in one of the following two situations if you have landed on this page:

The period under review (not exceeding 3 years before the year of the audit).
The list of taxes, fees, and contributions subject to examination.

2. There is a risk of a field tax audit.
Turnover of the company exceeds 100 million rubles ($ 1,3 million), with no audit in the past 3 years.
Rejection of your value added tax deduction claim.
Commencement of audits of your counterparties.
Receipt of a call or a demand from the tax authority.
A decision has been made by the tax authority to conduct a field tax audit. The decision includes:
Indications that a FTA is being prepared for your company:
Inquiry from law enforcement agencies.
An employee of the company is summoned for questioning by the tax authority.
One of the company's accounts is blocked by a bank.
From the moment you receive a notification from the tax authority, time is working against you. In this situation, it is important to start preparing for the audit as quickly as possible - conduct an audit, bring order to the documents, and correct any errors. Timely preparation will allow you to save millions of rubles.
There are 12 criteria established by the FTS and more than 20 indirect criteria that indicate the preparation of a tax audit for a company.

In this case, you have time and opportunity to prepare. To avoid or minimise additional charges, it is important to prepare necessary documents, correct errors, and cooperate with counterparties. It is also crucial to develop a strong legal position that takes into account all relevant circumstances.
