Each company must maintain accounting, as well as submit accounting and tax reporting regularly. But sometimes for some reason, accounting and tax accounting was not kept or was maintained incorrectly. Then you should appeal to companies, offering accounting restoration services in order to make your enterprise operate normally again.
When accounting recovery is required
Accounting restoring is a complex procedure that is aimed at putting all the financial documents of an enterprise in order. During the procedure, the credentials in the database as well as reports submitted to the tax authorities are brought into compliance with the law, and corrections are made to the declarations submitted earlier.
When accounting restoring is required:
• Accounting was not maintained at all, and a gap of several months occurred in the documents for some reason.
• Documents were completely or partially lost as a result of financial force majeure.
• Accounting was maintained with lots of mistakes and violations due to an incompetent employee.
• An unscrupulous employee intentionally misrepresented accounting or tax information.
• After company’s reorganization, its status changing, and in other cases when it was not possible to switch immediately to the required accounting system for some reason.
Also, accounting restoring is useful to be carried out before major tax audits. In this case, external specialists will help to identify and eliminate the main violations and the owner could ascertain that all taxes and payments are calculated correctly.
In addition, if the company plans to automate processes, including accounting a restoring procedure should be carried out. This will help to minimize risks, eliminate mistakes and configure programs properly in compliance with current legislation.
If the accounting has not been maintained for a long time for some reason, gross errors have been found, and the accounting restoring procedure has not been carried out, it would attract various penalties to the company. Thus, problems with the tax authorities and other public services will inevitably arise. This will entail fines, seizure of bank accounts and property of the company.
In the most unfavorable forecast, the company’s management may be held criminally liable, and the company itself will be forcibly liquidated. In other cases, problems may arise with firm’s contractors, partners or lenders.
Accounting restoring services will be much cheaper than paying fines for mistakes in declarations anyway. In addition, this procedure will allow to avoid possible criminal penalties for tax evasion or other violations.

There are two types of accounting restoring:
• complete accounting restoring.
• partial accounting restoring.
A partial restoring procedure is required when existing reporting has given up with irregularities that need to be fixed. In addition, it is applied in cases when declaration were not submitted for several months, and information was not entered into the registers, or only certain types or sections of records are needed to be put in order. A full accounting restoring is required if the entire database was lost or it was not maintained at all. It is rather long and cumbersome process.
