Internal Audit

We can help you in arranging the internal audit function for your operations. Based on your preferences, we can act as your internal auditor covering every relevant location in your group. We can also help you in internal audit procedures concentrating only in the selected locations in Russia and other Eurasian countries.

Consulting and deals

Our market leading multi-disciplinary skills support businesses through both good times and challenging economic environments. We support our clients with their acquisitions, divestitures and strategic alliances in the Russian market. Our expertise covers all areas of strategic, tactical and transactional advice. In a connected world, it is as vital to understand national and regional differences as it is to understand differences in corporate culture. To make sure our clients maximize the return on their deals, we work closely with the PwC offices in Russia and other Eurasian countries. We can help you with defining and executing your M&A strategy by

  • finding the best targets, and analysing their strengths and weaknesses
  • identifying synergies and potential opportunities for improvement
  • accessing the capital markets and other sources of finance
  • performing due diligence
  • advising on tax and legal structuring
  • negotiating the best terms
  • managing the post-deal integration process – particularly the first 100 days, when it is essential to stabilise the new acquisition and stop any ”value leakages”
  • assessing the impact of the transaction on post-deal group reporting
  • carving out and selling non-core assets; and
  • making major changes to realise improvements in long-term performance.

Tax and Legal Services

We provide our clients advice and support also in Russia related tax questions. We can help you e.g. in challenging corporate income tax questions or value added tax matters. With the assistance of our global PwC network we can support both companies already established in Russia and companies starting their activities in Russia. You can also benefit from our legal advice for selecting an appropriate legal form for your company as well as for preparing and reviewing legal documents and business contracts.

Forensic Services

Our Forensic Services practice can help you prevent, investigate and remediate the issues arising from regulatory, legal and commercial minefields that can damage your brand and bottom line if left unchecked. We provide forensic accounting, financial analysis, advanced technology and regulatory knowledge to companies confronting corporate investigations, litigation and regulatory enforcement challenges.
