You wouldn’t choose your accountant on the basis of an internet search, just as you wouldn’t choose your
dentist or lawyer that way. Your accountant is just as important as your lawyer or your dentist. When
you need to find a lawyer or a dentist, you don’t use the internet; you ask your friends, acquaintances or
relatives and they give you the contact details of a lawyer or a dentist whose services they are pleased
with. You don’t immediately agree to that dentist or lawyer. You meet them, discuss your problem with
them and, if they gain your trust, you put your health or your life in their hands. Think about that.
That which you put into the hands of your accountant, i.e., your business and your money, is no less
important than your health or your life. Is there any point wasting time reading identical websites when
looking for an accountant? All accounting firms’ sites promise the same, i.e., quality accounting for a
reasonable price. Therefore, the first thing to do when selecting an accountant is to meet them in person.
Do you trust your new accountant? That is the question. You may, of course, request a business proposal
and consider it without meeting us, but engaging an accountant without meeting them first is not
recommended. A face-to- face meeting is the most important step when it comes to finding an accountant.
If, after reading this page, you haven’t immediately decided to arrange a meeting with Alexander Putilin,
the director of LLC Accounting Services, then have a read through the following pages of our very simple
We provide accounting services to small businesses and sole traders. This is the main service we provide.
We also provide a variety of related services, including:
- tax advice for businesses and individuals;
- HR recordkeeping;
- maintenance of individuals’ user accounts with the Federal Tax Service and monitoring their tax accrual;
- assisting individuals in declaring their foreign assets and accounts (complying with anti-offshore laws);
- declaring controlled foreign companies’ undistributed profits; and
- legal services for registration of LLCs and foreign businesses, as well as other legal services for small businesses.
In any case, our main areas of business are accounting and outsourcing.
Accounting services require the following resources:
- experienced professional accountants;
- licensed accounting software, cloud services and client data security; and
- accountants’ and lawyers’ assistants to interact with clients.
We have all of the above. Our seven professional accountants, accountants’ and lawyers’ assistants,
1C software resources, Taxcom (electronic tax declaration system), Tenzor (another electronic tax
declaration system), CJSC 1C cloud services, and Microsoft Cloud Mail allow us to provide quality
services at a low price. All our accountants have been working for us for at least ten years.
We can provide client references upon request.
We provide most of our clients with turnkey services, but this does not mean that our clients do not have
to do anything at all. It’s important to understand that accounting is based on primary accounting
documents and that it is the client and the client’s employees who collect third-party primary documents
during their day-to- day work. A client’s employees collect contracts, waybills, and acts of suppliers of
goods, work and services used by the company in its operations. Client representatives go on business
trips and collect documents evidencing their expenses. Collecting quality accounting documents is half
the work. All that remains is to enter the operations on the basis of the primary documents into the 1C
database and to generate the accounting reports and tax returns. Do we participate in the collection of
primary accounting documents? Yes. Our job is to determine which documents are missing and to
inform our client of the same. Of course, we can help a client contact its counterparties in order to
request documents. It is also important to understand that, in spite of all the talk about electronic records
management and document flow, the tax authorities and the courts still work with conventional paper
documents containing taxpayer signatures and stamps. Therefore, completing your own primary
documents and collecting those of your counterparties remains essential. This does not apply in the case
of tax regulation systems which do not require maintenance of accounting records.
Our fees are dependent on the complexity and average monthly volume of operations, as well as staff
numbers. It is generally cheaper to outsource work to us than to employ an in-house accountant. We
calculate our fees on the basis of the scope of a client’s operations. The following are our standard fees:
- in case of small businesses to which general taxation is applicable, from 10,000 to 100,000 roublesper month;
- in case of small businesses to which a simplified 6% unified tax is applicable, from 6,000 to 12,000 roubles per month;
- in case of small businesses to which a simplified unified tax of 15% on the difference between its income and expenditure is applicable, from 10,000 to 25,000 roubles per month;
- in case of sole traders to which a simplified tax (USNO) of 6% is applicable, from 1,000 to 10,000 roubles per month; and
- in case of shelf LLCs and foreign businesses, 2,000 roubles per quarter.

The standard method for examining statements and accounting records of a company is an audit. An
audit may be internal, external, compulsory or voluntary. Audits are usually expensive. Small businesses
usually do without an audit. Small business directors usually just trust their accountants. It is this that
causes reporting and tax problems. Accountants that aren’t audited by anyone for years will relax,
leading to a reduction in the quality of their accounting and reporting. How can you audit your
accountant without expertise in accountancy or taxation? There are several ways:
- With the help of an accountant, obtain a form 39-1 statement issued by the tax authority and
review the accrued taxes. If a company pays all its taxes, the arrears column should contain zeros
or minimal current taxes. Columns for fines and penalties should be empty. If significant arrears,
taxes or fines are reflected in the form 39-1, then your firm has a problem about which your
accountant is silent. Similar statements can be obtained from the Pension Funds. With Taxcom,
this can be done electronically, i.e., without the need to visit the organisation.
- Carry out reconciliation of payments with the company’s debtors and creditors more often.
Compare the data in reconciliation reports with those of the accountant. The accountant should be
able to explain and remedy any discrepancies between the two.
- Perform inventories of the company’s assets and obligations more often. Compare the inventory
data (inventory records) with those of the accountant. The accountant should be able to explain
any discrepancies between the two.
