September 3, 2020 15:54


Stages and methods of tax audit of a counterparty

In order to protect itself from all possible risks in the conduct of business activities and claims from the tax authorities, the company should take several steps to conduct an audit of the counterparty. Verification is usually carried out in four stages:

Stage 1. Analysis of data from the Internet resources of official bodies

Using the websites of official government agencies, you can get all the basic information about a potential counterparty.

First of all, you need to refer to the website of the Federal Tax Service of Russia ( With the help of special services, you can get the following information about all business entities:

brief information from the Unified State Register of Registration of Legal Entities (USRLE) online: is the counterparty listed in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, the date and place of its registration, legal address, information on the authorized capital, founders and on making amendments to the register indicating the date;

whether there is a decision on liquidation in relation to the counterparty, reorganization, reduction of the authorized capital, published in the “Bulletin of State Registration”;

whether a decision has been made regarding it to be excluded from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities as an inactive entrepreneur;

obtain confirmation that the management of the counterparty company does not include disqualified persons;

find out if it is registered at the address of "mass registration" and whether it is possible to contact it at the address indicated in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities;

control the absence of the founder or the head of the company in the register of persons who refused to participate in the organization;

to obtain information about the presence or absence of arrears on obligatory payments;

to obtain information about whether there is a suspension of operations on the company's accounts;

check the counterparty by TIN.

The website of the Main Directorate for Migration Issues of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia (http: //services.guvm.mvd.rf/info-service.htm? Sid = 2000). With its help, you can get information about whether the passport of an individual entrepreneur or the head of a counterparty is included in the list of invalid passports of the Russian Federation.
The register of unscrupulous suppliers of the procurement system for state and municipal needs, which is maintained by the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia ( Of course, a potential counterparty will not necessarily be a participant in this system, but in order to minimize risks, a check should be carried out in this register too.
The website of the Federal Bailiff Service ( Here is a databank of enforcement proceedings, referring to which, you can find out whether enforcement proceedings have been opened against the counterparty, regardless of whether the counterparty is an individual entrepreneur or an organization.
The card file of arbitration cases on the official website of the Supreme Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation ( provides an opportunity to find out if the counterparty is not involved in litigation. Contains information about litigation and their content.
The Unified Federal Register of Information on the Facts of the Activities of Legal Entities ( provides information on whether the counterparty is at any stage of bankruptcy, as well as on the value of the net assets of the joint-stock company as of the last reporting date.
Licensing Authority Sites. They can be used to check whether a license was issued to a potential counterparty (if its activity requires such a license). Each type of activity has its own licensing authority, and, therefore, a website.
After completing the verification of the reliability of the counterparty using Internet resources, you can proceed to the second stage. 

Stage 2. Analysis of the package of documents

Stage 3. Analysis of informal data about the counterparty's activities

Stage 4. Assessment of test results and possible solutions

Russia-IC has developed mechanisms for checking the conscientiousness of counterparties, including inquiries and analysis of the necessary documentation, as well as a study of the Internet environment. We guarantee the reliability and accuracy of the information collected.
