SCHNEIDER GROUP was founded in Moscow in 2003 by Ulf Schneider, former CFO of an insurance company in Russia. It was his idea to give hands-on support to companies entering the Russian market.
Over the years, we have developed our service range as well as our geographical presence. After Moscow, we opened our St. Petersburg office in 2004.
Many of our clients started considering Russia’s neighboring countries as potential sales markets; accordingly our Kyiv office was opened in 2006 offering the complete service range from business set-up to business expansion in the Ukraine.
The Almaty office was opened in 2007 and Minsk followed a year later, in 2008. We support international companies in market entry into Kazakhstan and Belarus from our offices in Almaty, Aktau, Astana and Minsk. All these offices provide our full service range for the Kazakhstani and Belarusian markets.
Further expansion occurred in 2012 when we opened our office in Warsaw from where we consult our clients on business set-up in Poland, accounting outsourcing, tax advice, recruiting as well as reporting in compliance with international standards. We also take over the personnel administration and payroll accounting for foreign companies.
With the opening of our offices in Berlin we have turned the tables and give international companies the opportunity to enter the German market.
Due to our clients’ requirements we extended our service portfolio, to offer almost all back-office services necessary for a successful business, becoming a one-stop business partner in Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine, Poland and Germany.
Our global network of representative offices facilitates initial contact, assists in orientating clients within our company group and enables smooth communication through local representatives.
