The implementation of each renewable energy project is preceded by the planning and structuring of business, contracts and relationships with project participants. With proper planning, you can optimize the payment of taxes, as well as get exemption from certain taxes. Therefore, when implementing renewable energy projects, it is important to pay attention to tax and customs issues.

Sayenko Kharenko invites you to take part in the event to share experiences on tax and customs issues in the implementation of projects using renewable energy sources (RES). The workshop will cover the key problems of structuring contracts for renewable energy projects, exemption from import VAT for equipment, and reimbursement of VAT for such projects.
