Sanctions on accountancy services

The UK announced a ban on professional services exports to Russia on 4 May 2022, which came into force on 21 July 2022. The sanctions cover accountancy, management consulting, and PR services. The ICAEW Insights article Prohibition on provision of accountancy services to Russia comes into force explains the new legislation and suggests action points for ICAEW member firms. 

The EU announced a package of sanctions on 3 June 2022, which includes a prohibition on the provision of consulting services to Russia. The sanctions include accounting, auditing, bookkeeping, tax consulting services, business and management consulting, and PR services. The Council Regulation (EU) 2022/879 gives a detailed list of which services are prohibited and a number of exceptions (see paragraphs 23-26 and articles to be amended). The deadline for cessation of activities is 5 July 2022.

The US announced measures on 8 May 2022 that include a ban on the provision of accounting, trust and corporate formation, and management consulting services to any person in the Russian Federation.
