Due to geopolitical changes, there is an increased interest in the jurisdiction of Kazakhstan for business relocation. Interest in Kazakhstan is also growing due to the jurisdiction of the Astana International Financial Center (AIFC), regulated by rules based on the principles of English law and providing tax benefits. The KPMG Law team in Kazakhstan, together with our tax team, provides advisory services to local and international companies in connection with the business reorganization of holding and subsidiary companies. Our team offers both consulting services regarding possible reorganization options, as well as full legal support in the process of reorganization or restructuring of holding companies and the establishment of new companies in the jurisdiction of Kazakhstan.

Our recent experience includes:

  • Legal advisory services on the most practical options for incorporating a legal entity in Kazakhstan and options to transfer bonds within the group, along with recommendations on the most suitable option.
  • Full legal assistance with registering a subsidiary of a Swedish investment fund in the Astana International Financial Centre.
