Sochi became one of the first cities to successfully launch a tax-free system at several companies, Andrei Nikonchuk, deputy head of Sochi's Department of the Consumer Market and Services, said at the City Press Center.

"The tax-free system project is a new one that has just kicked off. Sochi is among the first cities participating in the experiment. At present, it is not working on the scale we want but four brands have already joined the system," he said.

According to Nikonchuk, the introduction of the tax-free system will attract more foreign visitors to Sochi.

"We hope the experiment will succeed and more businesses will join the project next year," he added.
