Evgeny Shcheklanov, Managing Director of Sber Life Insurance:

«All clients with endowment and investment life insurance policies can receive a tax deduction of 13% of the amount of contributions, but not more than 15,600 rubles per year. Sber Life Insurance has for now issued about 800,000 endowment and investment life insurance policies for which a tax deduction is available. Getting this tax deduction on your own can be time-consuming. Our service allows doing this conveniently and quickly, and the best reward for the client will be to receive a tax refund from the government. Since the beginning of 2021, 2,128 of our clients have requested assistance from a tax consultant. The service undoubtedly shows great prospects for development as many of our clients do not even think about applying for tax deduction, thinking that it is difficult to get.»
