Having analysed, systemised and generalised achievements of the researchers that dealt with the problems of harmonisation of tax and business accounting of expenditures, the article considers existing problems of practical and theoretical character connected with control of expenditures in the context of taxation. In the result of the study the article specifies directions of harmonisation of tax and business accounting of expenditures, namely: it reveals problems with discrepancy between acceptance of expenditures in business and tax accounting; its conducts comparison of cost structures, which are formed in the business and tax accounting in the context of taxation; it reveals discrepancies in the concept mechanism approved by regulatory acts of the business and tax accounting; it points out a necessity of correcting the system of registers, intended for accounting and control of expenditures, with the aim to optimise and increase the control level.
