I am pleased to introduce the second of a series of multilingual dictionaries created within the TACIS Programme, a European Union initiative for the New Independent States and Mongolia. These dictionaries have been conceived as an essential contribution to the deeper mutual understanding between Russian and Western professionals in the most important areas of collaboration covered by the TACIS Programme. The first publication of this series, the Dictionary of Economic and Management Terms, has generated strong interest in the NIS Countries, where 1,500 copies have been distributed. Therefore I hope that this new dictionary will become a very useful instrument for organisations and individuals both in the NIS and in the European Union. The present volume contains basic terminology in the field of taxation and accounting with explanations in English and Russian together with their French and German equivalents. Taxation terminology is one of the most complicated parts of the economic domain. Furthermore, due to the difference between market driven and centrally planned economies, there exists a divergence in connotation for many taxation terms. The close connection with the European Commission’s electronic terminological data base, EURODICAUTOM, converts this dictionary into an important prestandardization work facilitating specialists of the CIS countries easy access to taxation laws and regulations applicable in the Western countries.
