afghan taxes, business registration and cost recovery - a step by step guide

Join us for a complimentary webinar on Jun 03, 2015 at 1:00 PM EDT.

For years, contractors working in Afghanistan have been stuck between two irreconcilable positions: the Afghan government seeks to impose business registration and taxation requirements, while the U.S. government tells contractors not to comply with those requirements.

This webinar will present contractors with a step-by-step approach to dealing with these contradictory problems:

  • History of the Afghan tax issue and U.S. response
  • The current state of Afghan tax laws as they apply to contractors
  • Working through the Afghan tax system
  • Seeking reimbursement from the U.S. Government

The webinar will be conducted by three firms that have worked together successfully in helping contractors resolve these issues.

Registration is free. Click here to enroll.
