Due Diligence

Due Diligence in Russia

A famous proverb says: “You cannot understand Russia, you can just believe it.” Nevertheless, one should try to understand the Russian way of thinking even more when investing in Russia. Internal Audit and Due Diligence are the services that support you in this. One has to keep in mind, even though it has improved over the last few years, the legal certainty in Russia is still lower than in for example Germany, Austria, Switzerland or the USA. Cases in which tax authorities are arguing without any legal permission or basis are rather common in Russia.

Within our service “Due Diligence in Russia” we offer the following performances:

  • Entire Tax Due Diligence;
  • Entire Finance Due Diligence;
  • Entire Legal Due Diligence;
  • General analysis of the purchased company;
  • Analysis of risks and arrangements to minimize risks;;
  • Support of the client during shareholder’s meetings and negotiations during the acquisition;
  • Analysis of the financial reports;
  • Individual Due Diligence, focusing the client’s demands and questions.
