The Belarusian office of Arzinger & Partners has represented Uber B.V. in negotiating and concluding an Agreement on Interaction and Cooperation with the Ministry of Taxes and Duties of the Republic of Belarus, signed on November 15, 2016.
Uber is an international technological company developing mobile services for search of cars with a driver. The company provides its services in more than 500 cities and 80 countries of the world. In Belarus – in Minsk – Uber started its work on November 5, 2015.
According to Arzinger & Partners, "implementation of the provisions contained in the document will help to create a healthy competitive environment and transparent market conditions in the market of city transport services, including the services rendered with the application of the information technologies."
“We highly appreciate execution of this agreement," commented Alexey Stakh, the General Manager of Uber in the CIS. "In our opinion, cooperation within this agreement will add even more transparency for the state body. That, in turn, will help this body to collect the predicted amount of taxes in the transport industry. Transparency and openness from all players of the transport services market will help to improve the quality of transportations and will allow making the capital of Belarus even more comfortable for working and living."
The Arzinger & Partners team was led by Managing Partner Sergey Mashonsky, working with Deputy Director Klim Stashevsky.
