Can a business slip away from inspections and become “untouchable”?

We already wrote that on the website of the General Prosecutor’s Office of the Russian Federation, as well as on the website of the Prosecutor’s Office of St. Petersburg, a consolidated (interactive) plan of inspections of legal entities is posted.

We strongly recommend that you look into the list of “lucky ones” and arm yourself with information regarding your company. If you find the company you are looking for in the list – “hypothetically” there is a chance to slip away.

What need to do?

Refer to the status of a small business. Reason: Article 26.2 of the Federal Law of December 26, 2008 No. 294-ФЗ “On the Protection of the Rights of Legal Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs …”. The article was introduced on December 25, 2018 No. 480-FZ.

But there is always a nuance. Do not get away from checking if:
If the rules of the risk-based approach apply for a particular type of audit (this risk-approach is defined by Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of August 17, 2016 No. 806 as amended on October 12, 2018, 31 types of control are named in it). Consequently, from the Fire Supervision, the FMS, Phytosanitary, Rospotrebnadzor, Labor Inspectorate, Land Supervision, the Construction, Federal Antimonopoly Service, the Ministry of Emergencies and a couple of dozen more supervision;
If your organization is in the field of pharmaceutical retail, educational activities (from pre-school to secondary), organizes children’s camps on vacation or provides social services with accommodation;
If previously there was a prosecution against the company for such violations;
If your activity is subject to licensing;
If you are an audit company, work with state secrets or in the field of radiation safety, nuclear energy, deal with precious metals (assay supervision).
And nobody is obliged to notify about tax audits.
