Every hundredth company in Russia does not pay any taxes or insurance premiums, to the RBC calculations based on data from FNS. And some companies have hundreds and thousands of employees, but do not pay contributions
A penny in the budgets
Almost 25.8 million companies in 2017 not paid a single ruble in taxes or insurance contributions, calculated by RBC based on a new dataset of the Federal tax service (FTS). This 1.2% of all companies, details of which were published by the tax authorities.
FNS has disclosed the payment of tax on profit, property, transport and VAT. In the category of insurance premiums takes into account all three kinds of contributions to social insurance, mandatory medical insurance and pension insurance. Lowest rate (1.2 percent) can be explained by the strengthening of tax control, told RBC partner of the law firm Taxology Mikhail Uspensky. For example, the head of the FTS Mikhail Mishustin said earlier that cheat on VAT fell from 8 to 1% due to implementation of automated system of control over tax refund ask the VAT-2. Of 1.2% — are companies that rent zero accountability and not actually conduct activities suggested by the head of practice of tax disputes "MEF-Audit PKF" Alexander Ovesnov.
Companies that do not pay either taxes or insurance premiums, may be innocent, said the head of tax and legal, KPMG in Russia and the CIS Mikhail Orlov.
"It could be companies that are engaged in educational, medical activities. These taxpayers the tax rate on profits is 0%. We do have a lot of privileged categories, which can legally not pay taxes. No VAT or profit tax for these companies is understandable and absolutely legitimate," — said Orlov.
Lawful activity in the absence of the insurance payments are also possible if the company hires individual entrepreneurs or employees of the company. "Many companies only hire entrepreneurs, who already do pay off-budget funds, because these companies do not want to mess with the calculations of insurance payments (and, with strict rules of regulation of labor relations). It's perfectly legal, and de facto the company has workers, and a de jure workers there, because they are independent business contractors," added Orlov. To work for the company and employees of staffing agencies or interdependent organizations. "There is a kind of business of providing staff - outstaffing. For example, a restaurant enters into a contract with a recruitment Agency to provide staff. Cooks and waiters work, but they are not the restaurant staff, and workers contractor," — said the expert.
In August, on beginning to reveal the data of enterprises not constituting a tax secret. In the first stage has information on the number of employees, special tax regimes and participation in the consolidated group of taxpayers. The second — the income and expenses of companies according to their financial statements and on the paid contributions and taxes. December 1, FNS will disclose information about tax violations, fines and other sanctions. Only the Agency publishes data on 2 million companies, but in Russia on 1 January was 4.4 million legal entities, and in past sets revealed details about 2.5 million legal entities. Earlier, the question of RBC, what is the difference between the number of operating legal entities and companies in the set, FNS reported that only reveals the data of economic partnerships and societies.
Because of the economic sanctions on at least until 2020 is not going to disclose information on strategic companies, defense companies and largest taxpayers. Approved by the President the list of strategic enterprises includes about 70 companies, including "Rosneft", "Gazprom", Russian Railways, Aeroflot, VTB, "RusHydro", etc. To strategic taxpayers at the Federal level includes companies with revenue above RUB 35 billion per year, regional — from 2 billion to 35 billion rubles.
The staff is, and no contributions
Zero premiums, RBC found 481,2 thousand companies. Almost half of these companies (46%), according to FNS, the average number of employees in 2017 was greater than zero. For example, SMU-8 metro reported on that in 2017, the company employed more than 1.2 thousand people, but she did not pay insurance fees. In SMU-6 "Metrostroy" and the child for the "Metrostroy" company "the Tunnel 2001" the number of employees was equal to about a thousand persons, and the premiums in these companies was zero. The same situation in JSC "Energogazinzhiniring" (belongs to group "Rusgaz"), JSC "Sitall" (Smolensky glass factory "Sitall"), OOO "PKF Stroybeton" and many other companies, in which the number of employees reporting up to several hundred people, and the premiums are not paid (or not specified in reporting). These companies employ the most people in comparison with other enterprises, which, according to FNS, do not pay insurance premiums.
Probably, such data — a technical error, says the assumption of Taxology. "Cannot company with a large staff not to make any payments," he explains. FNS previously explained that the data in the write statements themselves, the company and the tax authorities shall not have the right to correct them.
There are also companies with one employee who do not pay insurance premiums. As a rule, in them, "one CEO, who formally listed in the state, but does not receive a salary, and, accordingly, the base for contributions does not arise," says Ovesnov.
In addition, RBC found that 85.8 per thousand companies that are not paying (for statements) or income tax or unified tax on imputed income or simplified tax system of taxation, had in 2017 total revenues exceed total expenses. The profits before tax reached tens of billions of rubles.
The largest taxpayers
As follows from the information of tax service, the most in taxes in 2017, the Russian budget has listed JSC "Philip Morris Kuban" — 46,5 bln (in April 2018, the company was included in the "Philip Morris Izhora"). In second place — JSC "Bank VTB 24" (joined VTB in the end of last year), his contributions amounted to 38.1 billion roubles On the third — a subsidiary of Rosneft, Krasnoyarsk JSC "Suzun", the company transferred to the budget of 25.4 billion rubles. And only the first hundred of the taxpayers whose information is, on revealed, with "Rosneft" associated with ten companies. However, it is worth considering that the set does not include the largest taxpayers and strategic enterprises, which traditionally occupy a leading position in the amount of taxes paid.
19% of Russian companies, which revealed the FTS, showed losses in 2017. About 27% finished the year with zero profit
The Federal tax service (FTS) reported financial results 2.5 million Russian companies — this is the second wave of large-scale disclosure of data on Russian business, which in 2016 was withdrawn by the regime of tax secrecy. Almost every fifth company was unprofitable (before tax), according to the RBC calculations based on data on income and expenditure for the financial statements for 2017. This is partly due to the economic downturn, in part — with tax fraud, experts explain. A quarter of the companies did finish last year with zero income and expenses — mainly those who, though not closed, but it is not needed owners.
Open data on
FNS began to disclose do not constitute a tax secret information about the companies on 1 August, and data on amounts of income and expenses that analyzes RBC, was published on 1 October. In the first stage has information on the number of employees, special tax regimes and participation in the consolidated group of taxpayers.
Because of the economic sanctions of the West on at least until 2020 will not disclose information about strategic companies, defense companies and largest taxpayers (at the Federal level, these include companies with revenue above RUB 35 billion per year, regional — from 2 billion to 35 billion rubles.), wrote RBC. Approved by the President the list of strategic enterprises includes about 70 companies, including "Rosneft", "Gazprom", Russian Railways, Aeroflot, VTB, "RusHydro", etc.
December 1, FNS needs to disclose tax violations, fines and other sanctions.
RBC analyzed data on enterprises, whose income does not exceed 35 billion rubles (more than the results of this indicator can tell the error in reporting). On average, the income of companies listed on amounted to 51.2 mln and the average cost — 50.2 mln RUB the Average profit before tax of RUB 6 million among companies with positive financial result. The average net loss of unprofitable enterprises amounted to 11.8 mln.
In 474 thousand companies from 2.5 million, details of which are disclosed on spending exceeded revenues. Thus, at least 19% of Russian companies, not counting the "strategy" of defense enterprises and major taxpayers, which FNS does not disclose a loss. "Most of these companies are likely to be unscrupulous in business, tax or accounting", — the partner Department for taxation and law Deloitte Anton Zykov.
"In some cases, it may be short-lived (on the previously reported decline in numbers to a historic low. — RBC) or company involved in tax fraud, but the percentage should not be very big" — says the managing partner of the law firm "Lamczyk, Krupsky and partners" Alexander Lenchik. The loss ratio is one of the reasons for increased attention to the company by the tax and calling for a special Commission, he says.
However, the loss is not necessarily a sign of fraud, the expert pointed out: some companies could fail to reach self-sufficiency due to sanctions, the growth of the exchange rate, the General economic downturn in the country. The number of unprofitable legal entities can be created under construction projects, which were subsequently frozen. Unprofitable could become subsidiaries of foreign companies, the proceeds of which due to exchange rate difference and the General decline in demand did not cover costs.
Suspicions, according to Zykov, should cause no all legal entities with losses, and the company with very little turnover. "I can hardly imagine operating business with revenues of 10 thousand. It can be an unscrupulous company which sends bogus reporting, or temporarily dormant company, whose management is not paying due attention to reporting," Zykov explained. FTS data allow us to count more than 14 thousand companies, whose income in 2017 was not zero, but did not exceed 10 thousand rubles.
At the same time, it is important to emphasize that these financial statements cannot be directly used to draw any conclusions or assumptions about the payment of taxes. Income and expenses can be recognized in accounting, but not to be taken into account when determining tax base on profit, and, on the contrary, income and expenses can be recognized in tax accounting but not recognized in accounting.
More accurate information
In addition, on the financial statements of the companies now collects Rosstat. Businesses are required to submit identical statements in both departments. However, data on more complete than the data of Rosstat, indicates Zykov. "Many companies ignore the duty to send financial reports to Rosstat, because the consequences for failure to provide information to FNS tougher," he said. From next year, companies will be able to submit reports only to the Federal tax, and the tax will pass it on Rosstat.
In total, the database on nearly 2.5 million businesses, as of January 1, were registered in Russia legal entities to 4.37 million, 3.6 million of which — LLC. The question RBC about the number of companies in the presented set of press-service FNS announced that the tax authorities have disclosed only economic partnerships and societies. The system handled the reporting is not all companies but only those in which the structure of income and expenses was most easy to work with, says Lenchik.
All the zeros
A quarter of companies in the database, on (621,4 thousand) completely zero financial statements for income and expenses. Zero income are 741 thousand organizations, and zero expenses at RBC 631 thousand compared these data with information about number of employees, which opened on 1 August. It turned out that 31% of companies with zero accountability are no employees and every second (52% companies) in the state is just one person.
Zero reporting indicate entities with the function of possession and ownership, which does not give revenue, said RBC Lenchik. But most companies with zero indicators just stopped functioning, and the founders may not eliminate a legal entity because of the risks of a tax audit and the extra cost of the procedure. In this case, the company can "rest up" for three years to remove the tax risks, said the expert. After this period of field testing, which is in liquidation of the company and may affect operations for the last three years do not reveal anything.
For companies with zero accountability includes legal entities created for the future to implement business ideas in the future. "This is the remnants of the past, when the legal person was created in huge numbers for every new asset, type of activity, business idea, — said Zykov. — We have a client that at a certain point there were 250 legal entities in the group, which was active just 15".
This trend, he said, stopped with the strengthening of tax control. "In 2015 due to increased activity of FTS was initiated many of the cases of illegal crushing business, unjustified tax benefit. Entrepreneurs began to look at a large number of companies on the downside: they are harder to administer, to undergo a tax audit, the higher the likelihood of risks," — said the expert.
To identify unscrupulous company, according to him, the possible date of registration: "If the company remains with zero accountability over three years, I would suspect that it is created without a legitimate purpose. It is difficult to assume a situation when a company is created and for many years remained a dead letter".
The incredible income and losses
Our database on there and visited the incredible at first glance indicators. Engaged in manufacturing Moscow, OOO "Gisunt" reported on about spending 10 trillion rubles in St. Petersburg CJSC "orange-development" reported spending almost 1.5 trillion rubles On the maximum income 121,6 trillion in FNS reported, OOO "ADAM" from Ingushetia. Moscow cleaning company "Wedge Groups" a million times overstated the amount of income in the report to FNS in the database of the agencies listed at 5.8 trillion and Rosstat — 5,8 million rubles.
These companies probably made a mistake, RBC reported in the FTS. "Moreover, FTS is not entitled to adjust such data", — added in Department.
Companies face liability if mistakes in the accounting records lead to an incorrect calculation of taxes, fees and insurance premiums. For the distortion of financial statements stipulated penalties according to article 15.11 of the administrative code. The company may correct the error, stating the correct data in the tax.
The company "Syngenta", one of the world leaders in the field of production of means of plant protection and seed production, opened in SKOLKOVO laboratory for research and quality control of plant material. The volume of investment "assets by Syngenta" in the project could reach RUB 15 million until the end of 2020.
"Very good sign", said the opening of the laboratory Kirill Kaem, Vice-President of the SKOLKOVO Foundation for innovations, who spoke about the "Syngenta" as one of the largest investors in research and development in the field of agriculture.

"Useful tips on hazardous objects"
In the SKOLKOVO laboratory, work on the creation of which lasted about a year, will be studied pathogens, undergo diagnostics and mapping of hazardous facilities, and the development of a methodology to identify them.
"Without such a diagnosis, we are blind," said Professor Fevzi Jalilov, head of Department of plant protection of Agricultural Academy. Timiryazeva. - What will be the laboratory of phytosanitary expertise and diagnostics of infectious plant diseases is a very important component of protection of plants, because diagnosis in the field has several limitations. We cannot reasonably apply the means of protection of plants. And received data of phytosanitary diagnostics, we are able to choose the right drug, to assess the need for its use. In this sense, this diagnosis helps to save the money of the producers not to do unnecessary treatments, to do only those treatments which will give effect.
On the other hand, there are a number of diseases against which we have no effective means of protection of plants, primarily viral. In such cases, we need to give farmers recommendations for integrated activities, which, h turn, can only be done on the basis of phytosanitary diagnostics. The opening of this laboratory is to give a new impetus to the protection of plants, will really help the farmer. It is very important that here in this lab in SKOLKOVO will be examined not only those pathogens against which the firm "Syngenta" there are drugs, but many other diseases faced by producers," - says Professor Jalilov.
As expressed by one of the top managers of the company "Syngenta", participated in the opening of the lab, "we give useful advice on hazardous objects"
Syngenta AG is a Swiss company which was formed in 2000 through the merger of agropokolenie firms Novartis AG and AstraZeneca Plc. The headquarters is located in Basel. More than 27 thousand employees working in 90 countries. Is one of the largest developers and manufacturers of GMO seeds and plants. As of July 2017 98 % of the company belonged to the Chinese state Corporation ChemChina.
Russia's wealth will grow through agriculture
"There is a stereotype that the main wealth of Russia – it is energy, - said Kirill Kaem. - Actually the main resource of the Russian Federation is a land and large reserves of fresh water. Gradually, the paradigm of GDP growth will shift from energy towards agriculture. We this trend is well understood in the SKOLKOVO biomedical cluster when the Foundation opened a field related to the support of new technologies in agriculture. Now begin to appear the first signs, when large companies such as Syngenta, are beginning to realize that in the Russian Federation in agriculture should bring the intellectual property to adapt existing technology for the climatic conditions, specific economic conditions in Russia.

The fact that the company Syngenta opens lab in SKOLKOVO is a very good sign for us. This means that we are moving in the right direction, choosing the right projects that are interesting to our long time partner, and very much hope that a giant inventory of competencies that exist in the "Syngenta", to help Russian start-UPS, and the Russian Federation as a whole and the Fund will assist companies with the development of our startups and the benefits that are in "SKOLKOVO" research centers," promised senior Vice President of the Fund.
Director of OOO "Syngenta" in Russia, Jonathan brown called it one of the most priority for the company markets. "The Russian Federation is the largest business for the company "Syngenta" in the region Europe-Africa-middle East", he argued.
According to the businessman, Russia today represents one of the few growing agricultural markets in the world. "The country has great potential for further growth of agricultural products, and the reasons for this are the scale of Russian producers and the Russian soil – the best in the world. Add to this the huge size of Russia and its geographic position between Europe and Asia, allowing the country to export their grain in both of these region. That's why Syngenta is working in Russia. We want to help Russia to develop agriculture and invest in Russia."
For an operating time in Russia the company invested in research and development to about half a billion rubles, according to Jonathan brown.
All the strength in soybeans
During his work in Russia, it is the third time involved in the discovery research division. Two years ago, Syngenta invested around $ 2 million in the laboratory for quality of seeds in the Stavropol region. Last year was laid the first stone in the Foundation of the Institute for the protection of seeds in Ramon in Voronezh region; in the future, the Institute will start to work. The investments amounted to about $ 3 million.
In Russian "Syngenta" has more than 500 employees. By the end of 2020 the company intends to build its own plant for the production of plant protection means. "We are investing in Russia in the protection of plants and seeds; the main crops are sunflower seeds and corn - continued Director of OOO "Syngenta". - We have the hybrids that were specifically bred and adapted for the Russian conditions".
That no one in the audience in Technopark "SKOLKOVO" have no illusions, D. brown mentioned that his company is associated with huge investment in R&D. in Fact, the reason why there are only four global players working in this area - this is the amount of investment. To create one molecule requires 250 million. the process to launch it on the market is at best 7 to 8 years, and often 10 years.

Now came a time when the company has received from the Russian regulator approval for a number of its drugs. "Over the next five years, every year we would bring to market one or two active substances," said Jonathan brown. In particular, he mentioned a new herbicide for soybeans.
From the point of view D. brown, soy is now becoming the most important crop for Russia. He attributed this to the rapid development of animal husbandry in the country. The company intends to create in Russia a joint venture to develop new soybean varieties. "We will deal with selection, crossing the canadian soybean varieties with Russian. In 2020 we plan to bring to the Russian market a new soybean varieties. It was Russian, not Swiss-grade," said Jonathan brown.
But it is not only the needs of the domestic market. The company is looking for a partner to do soy in the far East with an eye on the China market, said Sk.ru sources in the company. Which is quite logical given the structure of ownership in Syngenta.

In the report to the government, the Finance Ministry has opposed the proposal of the assistant to the President Andrei Belousov, to withdraw business of 500 billion rubles to the budget, told "Vedomosti" the official familiar with the text of the document, and two people from the companies included in the "list of Belousov". The report of the Ministry of Finance sent to the government on 17 August, the official said. Then the government should be accountable to the President.
The representative of the Ministry of Finance and first Deputy Prime Minister Anton Siluanov reminded that the government considers it inappropriate to increase taxes on the resulting business more revenue. Press Secretary of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev Natalia Timakova refused to comment on work correspondence.
In a letter to President Belousov was asked to instruct the government to study the mechanism of removal from metallurgical, mining and chemical companies income received from changes in "external market conditions" and the weakening of the ruble (but while preserving their investment opportunities and subject to sanctions). Attached to the letter was a list with the calculations for 14 companies – to align their profitability with oil and gas companies, the additional budget revenues will amount to 513,7 billion rubles., estimated by Belousov. In an interview with "Vedomosti" he said that this would equalize the tax burden. Putin instructed the government to consider. His press Secretary Dmitry Peskov called the idea "one of the expert points of view, the point of view of the assistant to the President," the President agreed that it should be worked out by the government.
We offer an almost complete withdrawal of free cash flow will reduce investment, will hit the ratings of companies and their ability to service loans retells a Federal official position of the Ministry of Finance and confirmed by the interlocutors of "sheets" of the companies from the list. A decline in dividend yields on their capitalization, increase the equity value. For the investment activity of private companies required a stable business environment, including tax, the source continues, "Vedomosti": they are already defined in the adopted in the spring session laws, scheduled to operate from 2019 and to remain until 2024 So the sudden removal of most of the additional income from export-oriented companies will undermine business confidence in government policy, warns the Ministry of Finance.
Analysis of previous years showed that on average 50% of operating cash flow are listed in the letter Belousova companies directed on investments, dividends went not more than 25%, continues the official. The profitability of assets of these companies at 5-20%. The projects of these companies require high investments at the initial stage, but the operation lead to relatively high operating cash flow, talks about the arguments of the Ministry of Finance official.
Similar arguments were in business. For example, the main shareholder of "Severstal" Alexey Mordashov in a letter to the Ministry of industry and trade (Vedomosti've seen a copy) warned that the company recently started to show a high EBITDA margin at the expense of investment in the past (over 10 years they have made more than 300 billion roubles). He warns that companies will be under pressure to reduce expenses on modernization of production, to the latest technology, separately mentioning the blockchain. "The method of formation of additional tax base looks encouraging inefficiency: the smaller the margin, the less taxes you will have to pay," said the owner of NLMK and the President of the Association "Russian steel" Vladimir Lisin.
The representative of the "Akron" did not answer the questions of "Vedomosti". His colleagues from NLMK, MMK, Severstal, Evraz, Mechel, metalloinvest, ALROSA, Norilsk Nickel, "Pole", PhosAgro, SIBUR, Uralkali, SUEK, declined to comment.
Companies from "list Belousov" operate in different markets, says the analyst of "Atona" Andrey Lobazov.
They are too different to bring them to a common denominator – how much and what taxes they can raise, insists the head of the analytical Department of BCS Global Markets Kirill Chuiko. In 2013-2016 there were periods when the steel company he worked on the verge of profitability, he said, profitability is no one indicator that can be taken into account in the analysis of tax burden: "For example, the steel company bought coking coal, and its profitability was 20%. Then she bought the coal asset, and profitability rose to 30%. Does this mean that the company now receives the profits due solely to market conditions?" "Mining is quite capital-intensive businesses: first, for many years to build something with big risks and high prices, and then, when it works, gives a good profit", – says Director of metallurgy Prosperity Management Nikolay Sosnovsky. Many companies "list Belousov," has not yet completed the investment stage, the analyst ACRA Maxim Hudalov.
To encourage companies to invest not by additional tax exemptions and creating conditions for increasing investment, knowledge of the position of the Ministry of Finance, one of the interlocutors "Vedomosti". Such incentives are set out in a government-approved plan to increase investments in fixed capital to 25% of GDP, resembles the official. In addition, it is necessary to reduce criminal risks indicated by the Ministry of Finance in the report.
The government's plan will be discussed at a business meeting with Siluanov and Belousov, which will be held August 24, knows the official. The agenda of the meeting has changed – not the seizure of profits and the creation of conditions for investment, say two of the interlocutor of "Vedomosti" close to the participants of the scheduled meeting.
We should encourage businesses to invest in the processing, to increase its depth – for example, many steelmakers export slabs and billets that are not related to the production of the upper redistribution, says the Deputy Director Tsmakp Vladimir Salnikov, but not by increasing the tax burden. If remove business income from the weakening of the ruble, why not extend the idea to exporters of automobiles using the Assembly in Russia of Russian components, or grains that have benefited from the fall of course, ironically, the Deputy Director of the development Center of the Higher school of economy Valery Mironov. Worldwide, companies are increasing their competitiveness due to the devaluation, and Belousov offers to artificially reduce the competitiveness of business, he wonders: for officials it is the classic behavior is to look for money where lighter.
Abstracts of the Ministry of Finance to a certain extent, reflect the reasoning of the business, said the source, "Vedomosti" one of the companies from list "Belousov". However, some interlocutors of "Vedomosti" believes that businesses don't relax yet, despite the government's position. "But the question is not in the theses or arguments. They did not talk sense," the skeptical an employee of another company: if you need money, the only question is, how much money from what sources and on what basis to extract. The money to Finance the may decree (additional 8 trillion until 2024) is, insist a few officials. "Most likely all over the fact that the investment program of the companies will increase in mandatory 10-20%", – believes Chuiko.

Resident cluster information technology Fund "SKOLKOVO" company "Button" has developed a service that using robotechnology allows you to significantly speed up the accounting process for small and medium-sized businesses. In may 2016, "Button" broke even, doubling its number of customers. At the end of that year the company's turnover was 200 million rubles. While the company's customer base is only growing – now "Buttons" already has 1,300 customers.
The Functionality Of "Buttons"
Service - "Button" unites accounting services, legal support and assistance to the business assistant, who, on behalf of the company communicates with the Bank and helps with documents that the entrepreneur can focus on business without being distracted by the fact that he can solve assistant. Thus, the Button assumes the three main functions, which the entrepreneurs usually spend a lot of time and money. Service, though working remotely, the command Buttons always in touch with the client. The entrepreneur may consult with the application from any device via browser, mobile app, email or phone.
In the development of software used technologiesbusiness intelligence. For training the neural networks needed holding up to a million operations. When the number of robots was enough to handle up to 10,000 operations, to thereby "train" the system. The company now trains robots on average 200 000 operations. The developers "Button" retrain robots every quarter when new data appear.
In the "Button" robots perform a large number of routine operations that were previously performed. For example, they help to bring in 1C database received from the clients documents. Robots also know how to extract archives, split multipage pdf into separate files, to turn and lead into the standard form. Next, the robot recognizes that it is a document, and reads data from it. Further, this information validates if the robot correctly recognizes all permits be recorded in the database. In addition, specially trained robots allow the service to respond faster to customers, others – automatically send reports with the prepared data.
Features of training robots
Despite the fact that to write code for the robot was easy, with their direct implementation in process the team has "Buttons" of any difficulties. So, developers were challenged to build robots in the accounting process, in which the man himself performed all the calculations, including their verification. Now the opposite is true – now all the work is done by the robot and checks. In this regard, it was required to develop additional interfaces for coordinating the work of the robots and the accountants. Also, the company carried out trainings for accountants to, in turn, to teach them to work with the robots.
However, the robot as a live accountant, is not insured from errors. As the Director for marketing of "Button" Catherine Kuzminski, there are three types of errors that arise when working with robots. "There are technical failures, of which no one is immune, for example, failure of iron, – said Ekaterina.– Due to the development of monitoring such failures we correct very quickly. Second, it is algorithmic errors that we detected at the stage of tests." According to her, before starting to use the robot in operation, he undergoes, on average, about 10,000 tests.
"The third type of error – when artificial intelligence is learned is not entirely accurate. This is normal for machine learning, which we use for our robots. The existence of such errors checked by our accountants and retrain the robot to become more", – said Ekaterina Kuzminskaya.
The accuracy of the robot when carrying out accounting transactions typically ranges from 1% to 15%. "Financial operations are divided into small pieces, – said Director of marketing "Buttons". And we give the robot a certain part of them. In this case, each robot has a metric. She's like the controller shows whether the robot made an operation where I went wrong or where not able to work."
Monitoring of robots in real time. Specialist, regulatory process, checks for errors, corrects them, and then the robot is undergoing retraining. As a result, even with checking robots, the company saves a lot of time that accountants spend on consultancy and tax optimization.
The contribution of the "SKOLKOVO" and future plans
Find new sales channels and new partnerships project helps Fund "SKOLKOVO". This year the Fund helped "the Button" to start cooperation with the Ministry for information technologies of the Moscow region, as well as facilitating the signing of an agreement with regionalnational support predprinimatelstvo time of the startup tour "SKOLKOVO" in Kaliningrad. The company now has "Button" and the Kaliningrad Foundation are working on a joint project for subsidizing of accounting services for entrepreneurs. Earlier, in 2017 the team "Buttons" participated in the international conference for startups in Startup Village, failing to reach the final of the contest of projects of FINTECH unit. The company presented its product, but were able to find new partners.
For the next year, the company has embarked on an ambitious but achievable objectives. "We want to continue to divide the accounting process into standardized parts and automate them to more to release the accountant from mechanical problems and have a more transparent accounting process, which we broadcast to the client via the application" – shared Catherine Kuzminski.
In "SKOLKOVO" appreciate the achievements and growth of the resident, noting the significant contribution to the work of the Innovation center. According to Ekaterina Ryzhkova, project Manager in "Retail" cluster information technology Fund "SKOLKOVO", "Button" actively develops, participates actively in events organized by the Foundation, and, importantly, have been able to draw attention to themselves at the Federal level.
In addition, the company provides a comfortable work directly for the residents Fund, allowing them to fully concentrate on the production of in-demand products, without being distracted by accounting support projects. "Company "button on the" perfectly integrated in the services offered Technopark is its residents – stressed Ekaterina Ryzhkova. – Use the company services many of the participants "SKOLKOVO". It is very convenient to trust to keep accounting company that understands all the intricacies of the work of the Fund and the requirements of the residents".

According to the study, less than half of the surveyed companies (46%) have official guidance on data management and only 15% of organizations there is a position of the chief of Department on work with the data. In other industries this position is important because it reflects the analytical maturity of the organization.
Respondents recognize that, over a relatively short period of time the analyst has brought a significant contribution to the development of the industry: from optimizing marketing campaigns to predict future weather conditions and the likelihood of the storm. Three quarters of respondents said that Analytics is gradually becoming the basis of the activities of their organization. Approximately two-thirds of respondents in varying degrees, are already engaged in the issue of implementation of corporate analytical platform in your organization: 13% have fully implemented it by the time of the survey, 24% were at the stage of implementation, 10% planned to complete the process by the end of 2017 and 18% were going to do this for 2018 and 2019. Only 35% of companies said that have no such plans for the near future (18%) or not know whether to implement the Analytics platform at the corporate level (17%).
The areas in which utilities expect to receive the greatest effect from the investment in Analytics? First of all, the forecasting of electric energy consumption. It is on the return on investment from Analytics in this area is hoping the majority of companies surveyed – 52%. According to the results of numerous studies, the improvement of forecasts by 1-2% could save millions of dollars. After respondents noted the high priority of the ROI from the "smart meter" (smart meter analytics) – 50% and Analytics for asset management (39%).
As for cloud solutions, the survey results show that half of the surveyed enterprises of housing and communal services is ready to consider the possibility of their use and implementation of SaaS projects to solve their analytical problems, another 20% of respondents are not yet ready to clearly answer the question. The main areas for the application of SaaS, respondents called load forecasting and energy consumption, client Analytics and data management.
The study also showed that most utility companies are turning to external consultants to develop the analytical strategy or by the cases. Support vendors, particularly system integrators, continues at the stage of implementation of analytical systems. Only 26% of respondents evaluate their level of dependence on external consulting as low or implement a new system just forces your organization.
