In an ongoing tax investigation spanning several years, Russian police searched the Moscow offices of Swedish cosmetics company Oriflame and seized documents related to unpaid tax allegations reportedly amounting to $84 million (3 billion rubles) from 2006 to 2010. Russia is one of Oriflame’s two largest markets in its direct-to-customer sales, and the company has stated that it pays a high tax rate in Russia. “Several independent local and international experts have confirmed that Oriflame’s tax practices are in accordance with applicable local and international legislation,” the company said in a statement. “The event came as a complete surprise to the company as it has been fully co-operating with the authorities since the beginning of the investigation.” See Oriflame Press Release and Law360, August 5, 2014.
