Moore ST

MST STEPHENS in Russia and the CIS

We first started to provide services in what is now the CIS in 1989 when our London member firm assisted Sovcomflot with its restructuring programme. In 1991 we became the first firm to carry out the audit of a Russian enterprise to ISAs. By 1995 our client portfolio included a significant number of companies across the region and we decided to open offices in key centres. Ever since, we have been one of the leading audit and consulting firms in the CIS.

Our clients

Our clients range from individual entrepreneurs with less than US$300,000 of turnover to quoted companies with market capitalisations of over US$ 1 billion. Whilst it is impossible to say what is a typical MST STEPHENS client in the CIS, it is true to say many of our clients, as with MST STEPHENS offices around the globe, are SMEs and that amongst them, many are owner-managed businesses. We also have extensive experience of working with state-owned enterprises. The industries in which clients are involved range from ports to women’s lingerie and investment banks to chicken farms although there are a number of industries in which we consider ourselves to have particular expertise. These include transport and shipping, banking and finance, mining, natural resources and energy, IT, telecommunications and media, real estate, agri-business, public sector, insurance and retail and wholesale.

Our people

We are extremely proud of the staff we have recruited and trained throughout Russia. It is our policy that every member of staff should either already have or be working to obtain either a Russian Auditing Certificate or an internationally recognised qualification such as the UK’s ACCA or the US’s CPA. Around 30% of our staff already has such qualifications and many others are actively working towards becoming qualified.

The right price

We have been sensible in calculating our proposed fee to ensure that both our organisations receive value from the relationship.

We know each other

We trust that after working with us on previous audit assignments involving the Group and its affiliates in Russia and overseas, you know from your own experience that your team and our team are capable of working together to achieve good communications and an efficient work process.
