In the past few years, Serbia’s tax policy has had two seemingly opposite trends: trying to create a tax environment that is conducive and attracting new investment, and the urgent need to strengthen the deteriorating fiscal discipline of Serbian businesses and individuals. As a result, tax laws and regulations change frequently, and tax audits are now commonplace and often very strict. In this environment, in terms of the tax impact of any given transaction, reasonable and practical tax advice is essential to reduce tax liability, while also protecting companies from fines and even criminal liabilities that may be caused by conventional tax controls.
