A client faced a multi-billion fine and bankruptcy...
A fine of up to 100% of the bank account transactions...
In most cases, the penalty for violating the currency legislation amounts to tens of thousands of rubles. However, for certain violations, the fine can reach up to 75 million rubles ($ 1 million).
How do the tax authorities become aware of currency legislation violations?
If the currency operations are conducted through a foreign bank account with a total amount exceeding 100 million rubles ($ 1,3 million) within one year without notifying the tax authorities, then, according to Article 15.25 of the Administrative Offences Code of the Russian Federation, a fine ranging from 75% to 100% of the total transaction amount can be imposed. Under Article 193 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, repeated violations of this nature can lead to criminal liability.
Automatic exchange of financial information with banks from 79 countries.
Through Russian banks and professional participants of the securities market who provide the necessary data.
During inspections initiated by the Federal Tax Service.
Также контроль соблюдения валютного законодательства могут осуществлять другие органы – Генпрокуратура и Росфинмониторинг.
Which of these 2 situations are you currently facing?
There are violations, and you want to protect yourself.
You have a foreign bank account, and the transactions amounting to 100+ million rubles ($ 1,3 million) were conducted through it within one year without notifying the tax authorities. If the Federal Tax Service detects a violation of currency legislation, you may face administrative liability and a fine of up to 100% of the transactions’ amount.
A case has been initiated under Article 15.25, and you are facing a fine.
The Federal Tax Service has already discovered a violation of currency legislation, and a case has been initiated. You may be subject to administrative liability with a fine ranging from 75% to 100% of the transactions’ amount. You don’t know how to build a defence strategy to avoid significant financial losses.
If violations have not yet been detected, you have a chance to resolve the situation legally without financial losses. If there are claims from the Federal Tax Service, it is important to promptly respond to the situation and build a defence strategy. Failure to do so is likely to result in having to pay the fine.

Fine for violating currency legislation; the prospect of bankruptcy
A client opened an account in a foreign bank and conducted transactions totaling over 4 billion rubles ($ 53 300). What is more, they did not notify the tax authorities about the account opening or the movement of funds through it. The client faces a fine ranging from 75% to 100% of the account transaction amount and the possibility of subsequent bankruptcy.
We conducted document expertise and thorough analysis of the situation. We assessed the actions of the tax authorities and other participants in the process. Based on the results of our experience in handling similar cases, we developed a strategy and an action plan.
There are certain exceptions to the liability for violating currency legislation, and we were able to prove that this case was one of such exceptions. As a result, the client managed to avoid a 3 billion rubles fine ($ 40 million), and the resolution of the issue cost only a few million rubles.
