Banking & finance

At this current time it is more important than ever to have a highly skilled and highly motivated auditor who will deliver high quality audits on time for you. Moore Stephens has built on and expanded this financial services capability. Our practice in the Russia was set up by a partner from London in the 1990s and since then we have gone from strength to strength, building a strong portfolio of banks all over the region, from Moscow to Vladivostok and many cities in between.
We have now been conducting international standards audits of IFRS financial statements for banks in Russia for more than fifteen years. In this time we have built up considerable experience, including a lot of knowledge gained during the last crisis in 1998. This has helped us provide our client with sound advice during the current crisis.
Our specialist team dedicated to banking and financial services has great breadth and depth of skills. Their backgrounds include experience at Big 4 audit companies, global banks and major banks in Russia, plus extensive experience of both internal and external audit. We believe that our clients would agree this is the reason we have a better all round perspective and a more innovative approach than our competitors’ audit teams. 

We offer the following services:
  • conversion of financial statements from National Accounting Standards to IFRS;
  • ISA audit of IFRS financial statements;
  • audit in accordance with national standards;
  • valuations of banks;
  • purchaser due diligence;
  • compliance audits and other audits for the EBRD, World Bank and other global institutions;
