Как удостовериться в законности валютной операции

С 14 мая 2018 г. банки получили возможность блокировать операцию, если она нарушает акт валютного регулирования. С одной стороны, должна повыситься внимательность к соблюдению формальных требований законодательства. С другой — вполне вероятны разногласия между банками и их клиентами по вопросам правовой квалификации операций. Практика толкования и соответственно применения валютного законодательства не отличается единообразием. Избежать возможных разногласий позволит ряд последовательных действий, описанных в статье.

A community of vershoks (unit of length) and roots

In the beginning of 2016, Tatyana Golikova, who is the head of the Auditing Chamber, reported that the level of depreciation for fixed assets belonging to organizations that provide healthcare and social services is 57.4%. Against the backdrop of poorly equipped facilities and a reduction in budget financing for medical institutions, the authorities are increasingly considering partnering with private investors as an opportunity to develop new projects and modernize old facilities. For now, the most widespread form of agreement for implementing this is the concession agreement, since business can better understand the rules of the game and the advantages of cooperation. However, the arrangements for distributing rights and responsibilities entail a much wider scale, but so are the prospects for this kind of collaboration taking root, depending on the region.

FAQ on structuring concession projects

Last year, the Federal Law “On Concession Agreements” turned 10 years old. Despite such a significant amount of time, and the volume of implemented projects, questions on structuring concession projects have not diminished. Conversely, with the national economy’s growing needs for infrastructure projects using private investments, and expanding the sphere of application of the concession model, the complexity of concession projects has increased. The more knowledge and experience participants have concerning concession projects, the better they will be able to improve them. This practical experience with concession law creates subsequent questions, the answers to which are not always found in the legislation.
