Oleg Chayka, Director, Tax & Legal, KPMG in Ukraine, has been elected co-chairman of the Tax Committee of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine [ACC].
Oleg had in the past been elected co-chairman and secretary of the ACC Tax Committee. He represented the ACC on the working group responsible for drafting and updating the Tax Code of Ukraine, and also at various tax events – seminars and conferences organized for the state authorities, foreign investors and ACC members.
The compilation of the ACC tax policy “10 Tax Initiatives to Make Ukraine a More Competitive Tax Jurisdiction” represents one of Oleg's main achievements during his years working at the Committee.
Oleg notes: “We actively promoted this document and had hoped that our initiatives would be considered during the development of the Tax Code of Ukraine. Unfortunately, however, only a few or our recommendations were implemented. At present we are making amendments to this document in light of the Tax Code that was recently adopted and the new priorities and goals facing Ukraine's tax system.”
