We believe in synergy. Our accountants work in cooperation with your team to ensure that all accounting information meets local and international standards. We keep the tax man away, so you can concentrate on growing your business.
Money is a sensitive matter, and managing employee salaries should always be handled with the utmost care, confidence, and punctuality. Payroll management in Leinonen is conducted by experts who are always up to date with the latest changes in the local legislation.
Payroll Administration means tiresome and ever changing activities, i.e., applying employment laws, monitoring local requirements, preparing contracts and maintaining employee records. With Leinonen on your side you don’t need to, we will do it for you.
Every company must take care of its business transactions, but local authorities often require specific procedures on certain terms. Your local Leinonen office is happy to take over all of these tiresome and time-consuming operations.
General Administration services at Leinonen make the business more convenient for you to manage. Upon request we can represent you in front of the authorities, archive accounting materials and provide a legal mail address or post handling service.
All of the managerial decisions should be based on an accurate management reporting system. Professional, high-quality and accurate bookkeeping is the solid foundation of management accounting.
We provide you with precise management reports, internal controls, support you in budgeting and ad-hoc reporting if needed.
Plan to take your company abroad? We are more than happy to assist you with the entire process and help you minimize the risks related to founding a new company.
When establishing a company abroad, it’s crucial that the company form and registration comply with the local legislation. We make sure that the chosen form is financially the most profitable for you.
On many occasions, Tax Advisory at Leinonen is linked to accounting services. The taxation of international businesses changes frequently and is somewhat difficult to comprehend, even if the company is operating in merely one country. No need for you to worry though, we are here to assist you.
In selected offices, we offer you legal services conducted by our experienced team members. In other offices, we have a handpicked network of local masterminds who will help you with any kind of legal issues. You are taken care of.
The first thing you should do is send us an email so we can schedule a meeting or a call. We would like to know more about your business and to discuss the scope of your needs: number of transactions that move through your account each month, annual revenue, the number of clients that you have, the number of employees that are on the payroll etc.
Additionally, we send you a questionnaire that helps us map your needs and requirements. Based on this information we are able to compile an offer. Once we understand how the process works for you currently, we can suggest improvements and how to best move forward with outsourcing.
Please remember that we are always pleased to meet and negotiate the offer as well as agreement conditions and other details. Our consultation is complimentary so you can learn more about our expertise and services.
We provide our services according to our clients’ needs, so there is no necessity to outsource entire accounting and payroll. In fact, sometimes it makes more sense to just outsource some controlling functions.
For example, you can have a junior accountant within your company taking care of day-to-day tasks and documentation, while Leinonen accountants execute controlling functions, money transactions and reporting. The complexity of the outsourced services really depends on your demand.
We can work with our own as well as the client’s preferred software. Most frequently we use programs like Visma, Navision and Fortnox. In the CIS region, the accounting software 1C is used by more than 90 % of the market. This is because generally it is the only software that connects directly to government entities for reporting purposes, and is updated constantly to match the ever-changing legislative environment.
Leinonen Group operates in 12 countries (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine) with 14 offices. In some countries our services might vary due to local legislative acts. We can help with the legislation that regulates cross-border services, as well as provide Single Point of Contact services if you have business operations in several counties. For more information about specific countries, please contact us.
We only hire the best and therefore have a team of chartered accountants with professional experience in the accounting of diverse businesses. You can also benefit from our tax advisors’ knowledge and expertise.
Our offices are certified with ISO 9001:2015 by Bureau Veritas quality certificate, which is also reviewed annually. Additionally, to hiring only the best, we try to have a Finnish manager present in every local office to regulate and support the work there. If you wish, we can provide references that can vouch for the quality of our work.
In every country, we provide services in accordance with the local laws and regulations. To guarantee the maximum level of privacy we have internal group auditing practises and encrypt most of the handled documentation.
We serve both local and international clients from single-person companies to multi-billion dollar international companies. It can be said that most of our clients are somewhat involved in international trade.
A typical case would be a foreign-owned business, where the foreign owner of the local subsidiary is very interested in following the local laws and regulations. They would like to hand accounting over to a trusted partner who is an expert in those laws and regulations. This way they can focus on their business, while Leinonen takes care of accounting, taxation and reporting formalities.
We do not differ our clients by their size. Small businesses have great potential to grow and what would be better than to grow together. In fact, outsourcing usually makes a lot of sense for small businesses, where there is not enough volume to justify hiring an internal accountant. Having professional outsourced help with accounting can be essential since you pay only for the help you need.
It depends on what kind of project you are thinking of. Company registration might take a few days up to a week. Annual Report compilation and submission from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. Establishing a new company abroad usually takes about 1-2 months. If you would like to outsource the accounting of your already working company, the transition normally takes 2-4 months. It can also be shorter but that depends on the services and scope of information to be transferred. Of course, the best project would be long-term cooperation to support your business.
