Jul. 31, 2017

Block 250_100

Partners of Baker Tilly Russaudit and Rosexpertiza have agreed to merge their professional practices. The merger creates a partnership with 20 partners and more than 400 professionals in 7 major Russian cities.

The newly established partnership represents Crowe Horwath International in Russia. Crowe Horwath is an international network ranked No. 8 by the International Accounting Bulletin in the 2016 global survey of audit and advisory firms. Baker Tilly Russaudit terminates its membership in Baker Tilly International effective 1 August 2017.

Partners of both companies have confirmed their strategic vision of expanding their business through the merger. According to their unanimous opinion, given current situation in the audit and consulting market, success depends largely on the availability of required resources and on the ability to be flexible and proactive with the clients’ needs – including the clients considering alternatives to the Big Four.

The management structure of the new business is fully operational and headed by the Supervisory Board and CEO, Alexander Kozlov. At the very top of the corporate structure of Crowe Horwath Russia is the newly formed holding company – Crowe Rus Holding LLC. One of the two operational companies – Baker Tilly Russaudit – will be renamed to Crowe Russaudit in the coming days. The other operational company – Rosexpertiza LLC – will retain its name during the transition period until the restructuring is completed.

The integration plan provides for a full harmonization of operating activities within a year and expansion of the service line, while taking advantage of the synergies resulting from the companies’ industry expertise.

It is worth noting that the legal framework of the new partnership provides opportunities for new partners to join if they meet the professional competence criteria and are willing to contribute to the growth of Crowe Horwath Russia.

In the next few months, Crowe Horwath Russia’s Moscow office locations will not change: Bldg 3, 7 Tikhvinsky Lane, and Bldg 8, 5a Novodmitrovskaya Street.
