Staff

The Audit St. Petersburg Consulting Group is a team of professionals!

The Group's results are in large part due to its employees. Our specialists are not simply professionals who have been working in the auditing, consulting and legal markets for over 20 years, but also active participants in the process of reforming the legislation of the Russian Federation. Many of them are author and co-authors of diverse methodologies, books, manuals and publications in periodicals, and combine their professional activity with teaching in the largest economic universities and their affiliates.

Demanding much from our employees, we seek above all to match the level of our clients as well as the norms of legislation in regard to international, Russian and internal standards and regulations for the organization and methodology of the audit's execution.

The Group's leading specialists have certificates qualifying them as auditors, certificates from the Center of Civil Initiatives - which supports internships in the United States of America for the study of American standards of auditing and accounting -, certificates from the National Training Foundation for HR development under the auspices of TACIS and supported by the EU's "International accounting standards and management accounting."

While engaging in public work relating to the activities of the Consulting Group, our specialists are actively involved in the examination and revision of draft laws and other regulatory documents at the federal and regional level, in the preparation of analytical materials on issues having to do with reforming the tax system of the Russian Federation, both for the government of the Russian Federation and for its president's administration.
