Liquidation of a company

We save your time and effort – we help you liquidate your company quickly and efficiently.

We have organized the liquidation process so that it requires minimal effort from your side.

Your participation in the process will be necessary when appointing a person responsible for the liquidation (the so-called liquidator, whom we can provide you) as well as when you cannot be replaced.

We take care of the rest so you can focus on the really important things!

An overview of the procedure

  • Issuing a decision on liquidation
  • Appointing a liquidator
  • Publishing a notice on the liquidation in the “State Registration Bulletin”
  • Entering information into the Unified Federal Register on the legal entities’ activities (hereinafter – Fedresurs)
  • Making settlements with creditors
  • Drawing up an interim liquidation balance sheet
  • Drawing up the final liquidation balance sheet
  • Registering the liquidation of a legal entity with the tax office


On average, the liquidation period takes from 4 to 6 months, but it can take up to a year.

During the period of liquidation, by the decision of the tax authorities on-site or desk audits of the activities of the liquidated legal entity may be conducted/ This in turn may increase the overall period of liquidation.

We have been very satisfied with the tax consulting service rendered in November 2016.

The report provides extremely thorough and precise analysis. It gives valuable practical recommendations based on current tax and currency exchange legislation, as well as relevant court cases.

We express our respect for the experience and competence on display and are delighted to recommend Wagner & Experts to any company in need of tax consulting services.

Managing Director, Bell Russia

As the CEO of the HÜPPE Group, I would like to express our profound gratitude to Wagner & Experts, who provide accounting outsourcing and legal services to our Russian representative office.

Wagner & Experts stand out by offering a comprehensive package price for their accounting services. They include everything a small representative office’s chief accountant would normally do – for instance, unlimited verbal advice, providing powers of attorney or register extracts without extra charges.

They have been true to their word, highly competent, accurate, fast and helpful. We could exchange e-mails directly with our accountant, as she understands English and German. In short, the quality of service has been exceptional throughout, at an extremely competitive price.

I am enthusiastic about our partnership, which has helped us to significantly reduce cost and increase efficiency at the same time.

I sincerely hope that many other potential clients will recognize that opportunity.

WIBERG Rus is the Russian subsidiary of FRUTAROM, an international group. We would like to express our gratitude to 2Syn, LLC (brand name: Wagner & Experts) for their consulting services on VAT and corporate income tax, as well as their rapid response in providing them.

In August 2017, we contacted 2Syn, LLC for advice on the VAT and corporate income tax implications of supplying free promotional literature in the course of training workshops related to the company’s operations.

2Syn, LLC were quick in supplying a competent, well-founded answer to the question posed, with references to the Russian Tax Code, other legislation and relevant court rulings.

Our company is confident in its recommendation of 2Syn’s competent specialists. They are able to shed light on complex and even controversial issues arising in the course of daily business, related to accounting for revenues and expenses as well as corporate taxation.

I’ve been using Wagner & Experts and they have been incredibly helpful. My company is up and running, I’ve got my work visa, and it all happened as planned. They made this whole process way easier than I expected and the whole team are just nice people to deal with. Highly Recommended.

Chris Cole

I would recommend Ben Wagner, very down to earth and honest person to deal with, who knows his stuff.

Aspiring web entrepreneurs face another battle, namely, doing the undifferentiated yet all-important “heavy lifting” … Each area is a career unto itself, doing poorly in an area will cause the entrepreneur to fail, and yet doing a competent job at each one is simply the price of admission… developers routinely spend 70% of their time doing this back end work. At Amazon we call this ensemble of challenges ‘muck’.

If you deprive yourself of outsourcing and your competitors do not, you’re putting yourself out of business.

These results suggest that service outsourcing not only would not induce a fall in aggregate employment, but also has the potential to make firms/sectors sufficiently more efficient, leading to enough job creation in the same sectors to offset the lost jobs due to outsourcing.

Make sure your back room is their front room. In other words, don’t you do guard services at your plant. Get someone who specializes in guard services to do them for you. Get rid of in-house printing, in-house conference services, any business that isn’t at the core of your focus.

In a world of outsourcing, no organization should have second-class support groups. They should outsource those functions to someone else who makes their living doing this…Stop trying to be all things. Anytime you find anyone referring to any group as a “support function”, think hard about whether that’s a function you can outsource.

A brilliant example of this is Coca-Cola. The company produces the syrup that makes its hugely popular soft drink ‒ but outsources (via franchises) the bottling of the product. In this way, the main company retains control of the part that makes it unique, passing on the work that practically any other company could do.
