Russia’s Accounting Revolution
In this issue of Russia Briefing, we look at Russia’s accounting “revolution.” The new Law on Accounting that passed the parliament in December 2011 and comes into force January 2013 is nothing short of revolutionary. Combined with the dramatic changes in accounting already underway in Russia, including the introduction of obligatory provision calculations in 2011 and automatic document exchange in 2012, the new law can be considered a breakthrough for further improvement in accounting in Russia
Russian accounting principles
In this new issue of Russia Briefing, we compare Russian accounting standards with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. We first look at some of the main differences between Russian accounting and U.S. GAAP including the difference in documentation, timing, the chart of accounts, division of cost types, provisions and accruals, expense and revenue recognition, and multiple element sales. We also examine how revenue is handled, how to structure a transformation from Russian accounting principles to U.S. GAAP, and the industry and business specific differences between Russian and U.S. accounting.
Establishing Business in Russia
Russia Briefing is a magazine and daily news service about doing business in Russia. We cover topics relating to the Russian economy, the market in Russia, foreign direct investment and Russian law and tax.
Payroll and Employment Law
This issue starts out with an outlook for the year 2012 and then moves into its core topic; payroll processing. Payroll processing in Russia is significantly more rules-based than in Western countries and newcomers to the country are generally surprised by the bureaucracy created by what appears to be overly demanding requirements.
The Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan Customs Union
This issue of Russia Briefing will assess the implications the Customs Union has on trade, looking broadly at the principles and progress of the union thus far, and clarifying key modifications to the VAT procedures for transactions involving the three member states.
Russian Market Entry
The Western media has perpetrated the image of Russia as a lawless country and much has been written about the difficulties of doing business there. In fact, the business opportunities in Russia are a well-kept secret, a fact to the advantage of incoming investors, who can thereby leave their overseas competitors behind. In this issue of Russia Briefing, we discuss why you should consider investment in Russia and how to make the first major decision in this process: what form of entry establishment to use.

B2B Electronic Document Interchange in Russia
This issue of Russia Briefing describes international experience pertaining to electronic document interchange. In general, it provides an overview of the legal framework pertaining to EDI in Russia, illustrates the reasons to convert to EDI, explores some technical aspects of EDI implementation, discusses some of the best practices in EDI implementation and finally touches upon issues of electronic document exchange security.
Customs Union Import Certification
Within this issue of RUSSIA BRIEFING, we will have a closer look at import and export procedures into, out of, and within the Customs Union. Several steps have been taken to simplify the procedures. Among them, there are electronic declarations and standardized certifications. The certifications shall have validity not only for one, but for all Customs Union countries and are gradually replacing the old certifications which have been valid for only one country and had to be done for each of the three member countries individually.
Are you targeting the right candidate
While economic growth brings promises of great prosperity, it also causes a lot of new challenges, some of which the country may not be fully prepared to address: one of Russia's biggest problems is a shortage of qualified labour. As one of the keys to economic growth, besides natural resources, is indeed qualified labour. This is a precious resource whose inadquate supply could pose significant risks to the country's growth.
