Tax structuring of investments in the BRIC countries for European multi-national companies
The BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China) are distinguished from a host of other promising emerging markets by their demographic and economic potential to rank among the world’s largest and most influential economies in the 21st century. Together, the 4 BRIC countries comprise more than 2.8 billion people or 40 percent of the world’s population, cover more than a quarter of the world’s land area over 3 continents, and account for more than 25 percent of global GDP. Investment in BRIC countries has become the primary target for European companies, but the shifting regulatory, tax and legal environment often makes investment decisions quite challenging.
