ORGANIZATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE DEBT SETTLEMENT PROCESSES
The procedure of debt settlement is a long and laborious work that requires maximum efforts concentration of specialists with diverse specialization. Very often business structures are not able to form their own separate unit, to which could be assigned this function, pass this functionality as an option to lawyers, security service or commercial units. In this case, the work will be mainly boils down to walking through the courts or the "operational-search 'activities or to the constant correspondence and telephone conversations. It is quite obvious - each unit will try to narrow down the function of the settlement to their usual and customary functional. The result - an extremely one-sided approach and thus leaving much to be desired level of performance. Organizing the same effective interaction of all responsible units in order to improve the efficiency is often not just difficult, but impossible due to some objective and subjective reasons. Our experts have many years of successful experience in major international and domestic companies in this area and they will help to "weak" links, tell us how to optimize the existing structure of the settlement or build it with "zero", train your staff more efficient ways of working, thus achieving desired results in the shortest possible time.

And to survive in tough times is to win, to get the last possible chance to achieve the goals and objectives, to save your business reputation, to be able to take back and to give back to others. Thus your business remains a business, but not a pack of papers with court-appointed administrator.

FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT
The world has changed. Dramatically. In recent years, everything that the whole world is used to has gone into eternity. And first of all, this affected the world of finance. And his circulatory system was one of the first to undergo these changes. Banks and other financial institutions have turned from convenient services into something between a police station and an amateur detective. Who doesn’t just want to know everything or almost everything. Sometimes he himself does not understand what he wants to know. Therefore, almost any financial transaction has essentially become a visit to a proctologist. Well, if once or twice a year, it seems like it’s not scary.
And if every day? Or five times a day? Who can stand it?
But if you have already gone this way? If the “proctologist” is almost a bosom friend for you? If you can get his opinion without even making an appointment? Or, understanding all the possible nuances of the reception, you know by heart the entire list of tests, examinations and conclusions and can do without examination in order to get its approval? Whether you want to laugh or not. But we are just the ones who know, can and are able to make everything go without such visits. Don’t believe me? Just try to make sure!
Everyone knows the phrase that money loves silence. But have you seen such places somewhere in our crazy world? No, of course they are. But not for everyone. But if money loves silence, then their owners want not only not to lose them, but also to increase them. But how? And where?
Indeed, there are so many obstacles on the way between your hard-earned and longed-for future income. From primitive crooks and crooks pushing the next pyramids, primitive and not so much, to “black swans”, which began to arrive more and more often.
Well, about the refined white-collar riders sitting in expensive offices around the world and promising manna from heaven to their customers – as a result of which turned out to be a callous rusk and then, on holidays – we are already silent. What can we oppose to all this? First of all, our principle is that it is much more pleasant for the client to share the earned income than to pay for the process for the sake of the process out of his own pocket. Therefore, we are looking for and find what can become the shares of the Apple Company back in 1976. Yes Yes. Such a famous 10 percent for $ 800. Which would now pull at nearly 100 billion.
Or Edison, who knows how to make electricity so cheap that only the rich will burn candles.
In general, this is precisely what allows us to be the thread of Ariadne in the endless labyrinths on the way to the longed-for income, in each of the corners of which the bloodthirsty Minotaur is waiting.
TAX BURDEN MANAGEMENT
The era of offshore is a thing of the past. Even more likely already gone. Irrevocably. You won’t be able to hide and hide anymore. And just standing behind a tree. Glorified transparency is ubiquitous. And the watchful eye of the fiscal lost its boundaries and became all-embracing and all-seeing. The islets of tax havens are still smoldering, financial paths and paths are not yet completely overgrown. But it’s only a matter of time. Those who are more prudent – began to prepare only when they saw light clouds on the horizon. But the majority only convinced themselves and their entourage. There are no hurricanes here. What is the Flood? What are you speaking about? This cannot be – because it can never be.
Life is wonderful and wonderful. And what is the bottom line? The wind is getting stronger. And he no longer had the strength to hold the door that he was about to rip out of his hands. What do we offer? No no. It’s too late to build the ark. Resign yourself and give yourself and your business into the hands of the Conduct? Hmm … In our opinion – prematurely, and too frivolous. But do you know – is the earth a hurricane terrible? Or water? Just to resist the elements, you have to become the elements. And we know how. And if it is too expensive for you, we will offer something simpler. But from this it is no less salutary and effective.
The main thing is for you to understand. You have to pay taxes – the only question is how much, how and where. And we will help make sure that the answers to these questions are optimal for you and your business.
If you are not too lazy and have read our web-site up to this point, this is great. And if you have scrolled through all of the above with a quick glance and moved on to this section, that's fine too. Therefore, here we draw a line under the above, or simply and briefly describe in a nutshell what was laid out above on the shelves.
Recently, upon the completion of a big project that lasted more than two years, one of our clients called us corporate troubleshooters. Haven't you heard of them? How is it? Remember the history of running shoes in Africa? Or the diameter of the hole in the toothpaste tube?
Or a joke about Yakov Moiseevich from the Odessa paper mill? Well, in general, it's about us. :) But seriously, we take on something that others have refused, come up with something that others do not think of, decide something that hardly anyone can solve. And we are proud of this title. After all, there is nothing more valuable than the title, rank, or name that was assigned to you by the people whom you were able to help. Therefore, we hope that you have already hovered the cursor over the next section "Contacts". ;-)
