BARS Group prepares for an exit to foreign markets
BARS Group studies possibilities of an exit to foreign markets, the CEO of the company Timur Akhmerov told in March, 2018. According to him, first of all BARS Group would like to try the hand in the markets of Europe and in Vietnam.
Concerning Vietnam Akhmerov notes that this country "is very located to Russia". As of spring of 2018 the company already takes pre-sale steps in this market, but to speak about specific projects so far early, he reported TAdviser.
Run to Europe of BARS Group thinks to make through Kaliningrad where calculates based on digital processes which "already built in health care", to try to create services for medical tourism. Some medical services in Russia cost cheaper, than in Europe, and it would be possible to entice residents of the nearby European countries to come to be treated to the Kaliningrad region, Akhmerov explained TAdviser.
This idea was already discussed with the government of the Kaliningrad region. And on development of medical tourism Timur Akhmerov, according to him, already "dreamed" with the Minister of Health.
BARS Group still should analyze what solutions in what countries of Europe it could propose. At the same time both in Europe, and in other countries the company wants not just to sell the software, and together with local partners to do solutions which basis would be formed by its products, Timur Akhmerov explains. Perhaps, such final solutions will be patented in that country where they were created, he argues.
Opening of office in Kaliningrad which the company announced in 2017 is a first step on the way to the European market, the head of BARS Group of TAdviser said.
Saying about how the current geopolitical situation can influence perception of the company in Europe, Akhmerov noted:
|I do not know how sanctions will affect. Perhaps, because our shareholder – Rostec, there can be some difficulties but as the businessman, I consider that the glass is half complete and it is necessary to do attempts.|
Abroad BARS Group has some experience of projects implementation. So, according to Timur Akhmerov, in 2013-2014 the company participated in the joint project with the partner in Iran. At some point the company understood that to work on this project for it is not too profitable and left it, Akhmerov tells. Who was in this country a customer, he preferred not to specify. Also BARS Group participated in the project in Kazakhstan.
The head of BARS Group explained why the share of Rostec in the company decreased from 100% to 25%
The CEO of BARS Group Timur Akhmerov in March, 2018 explained TAdviser of the reason of restructuring of the transaction with structure of Rostec - "National Center of Informatization" (NCI) as a result of which the NCI was the owner not of 100% of the company as it was planned initially but only the blocking packet.
Announced plans to purchase 100% of BARS Group through NCI Rostec in 2016. Announcing results of the activity at the end of 2016, the NCI claimed that in financial performance of the company activity of BARS Group company which it "purchased in the spring of 2016" is already considered. Timur Akhmerov remained the CEO of the company. In February, 2018 the NCI reported that the transaction with BARS Group was restructured: NCI received 25% + one share of BARS Group, and a share in 75% minus one action Timur Akhmerov owns now.
BARS Group explains that in 2016 the initial transaction which meant step-by-step share transfer of BARS Group of NCI was made. Commission of this transaction was lit as appropriate. In 2017, after transfer of NCI of 25%+1 actions, the transaction was restructured.
Akhmerov told TAdviser that when he initially discussed with Rostec of a term of transaction, he still then assumed its organization for model of the public-private partnership (PPP) in a proportion of 25% of the company - at the state and 75% there are private investments. But at that time the parties nevertheless agreed about sale of 100% of the company to the state with perspective within four years gradually to pass to model of PPP.
In 2017 the trend of digital economy in which PPP, concessions became one of the major vectors gained active development, Timur Akhmerov explained TAdviser. On this background in Rostec accepted his arguments about the fact that now it is a high time to restructure the transaction.
The CEO of BARS Group calls the existing structure of the transaction ideal. On the one hand, Rostec has a blocking packet allowing it to provide influence on the strategy of the movement of the company. And at the same time it does not influence daily operating activities concerning signing of the contracts, transactions, use of credit banking products, etc., Akhmerov explains. It allows to implement projects quicker.
If BARS Group executes the registered KPI, provides necessary financial performance, follows strategy and grows annually, then the investor does not have need to interfere with operating activities of the asset, Akhmerov added.

BARS Group is sold NCI (Rostec)
Delivery of personnel in lease to Rostec and loss of means in the Note bank
Having received from Rostec 43 million rubles into the account in suffering crash the Note Bank, the BARS Group company managed to write off them for benefit of tax specialists, but those, without having received money, require to pay repeatedly. Having visited a meeting, the correspondent of the Kazan edition "BUSINESS Online" in passing learned how the IT company leased state corporations of operators of call center at the price of 144 thousand rubles a month.
The application of BARS Group to interdistrict Inspectorate of the Federal Tax Service of Russia No. 14 on RT was considered in April, 2016 in Arbitration court of RT. The company demanded to nullify the requirement about payment of a shortage for the VAT exposed to it in November, 2015 for the third quarter 2015 in the amount of 9 million rubles. The ordinary, apparently, meeting developed into a basic dispute on the one who should get in line of creditors of 2015 which went bankrupt in the fall the Note bank.
The plot of case is connected with cooperation of BARS Group and structure of Rostec — National Center of Informatization (NCI) LLC. As you know, the state corporation is going to absorb the Kazan company (in March, 2016 satisfied with FAS Russia the petition of NCI for acquisition of 100% of stocks of JSC BARS Group), however at this time business still belongs to Timur Akhmerov.
In court interesting parts of the close relations of BARS Group and state corporation emerged. So, at the beginning of 2015 the company handed over the employees to NCI as to the resident Innopolis in lease. The purpose — accomplishment of services in maintenance of the round-the-clock operability state of the unified information system health care (UNIFORM STATE HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEM). Rostec is the only contractor of these works on the order of the government, and NCI was appointed the contractor of Rostec. Using this system electronic document management of sick leave notes and medicinal deliveries in medical institutions, the statement of compoundings, etc. is performed.
According to TAdviser, from January to December, 2015 in NCI under agreements of outstaffing 75 employees of BARS Group and 67 specialists from Er-Es-Technology company worked (it is also registered in Kazan and is a partner of BARS Group). It is about Java, PHP and Ruby developers, project managers, business analysts, system administrators, call center operators, coordinators of technical support. The NCI signed contracts with Leopard for 103 million rubles, with "Ayr-Es-Technology" — for 75.7 million rubles. It is interesting that specialists ran to the state very into money even by the standards of the world of IT. Ruby and Java developers were the most expensive personnel for NCI — monthly the company paid 238 and 225 thousand rubles for each of them respectively (including the VAT). And call center operators were the most low-paid leased employees — they cost 144 thousand rubles a month for NCI.
Let's note that the protocol of the commission of NCI on the choice as the contractor of BARS Group was signed only in October, 2015, the similar document on "Ayr-Es-Technology" — in December, 2015, and under the agreements published on the website of state procurements, providing personnel had to begin since January, 2015. As the lawyer of BARS Group company told during court session, the delay happened because of settlement of "some technical issues".
As reported the TAdviser center with reference to NCI, in 2016 agreements on providing personnel were not prolonged, including because of growth of number of staff of NCI. According to TAdviser, legislative ban on loan work which was imposed since January 1, 2016 by law No. 116-FZ can be one of the reasons.
However the contract did not bring good luck of BARS Group. At the beginning of September, 2015 Rostec transferred into a checking account NCI in the Note bank about 120 million rubles as financing of works on the medical contract, and on October 1 about 58 million rubles from them removed into the account of BARS Group in the same bank (most likely, payment for work in the first half of the year). On October 9 transferred to BARS Group from the same account 15 million rubles in the pension fund, 240 more thousand rubles — in social insurance fund and the whole 43 million rubles — into accounts of tax authority as advance payment on the VAT for the third and fourth quarter. But means in tax did not act therefore in November and the requirement of 9 million rubles for debts for the third quarter was exposed to BARS Group. It also formed the basis for the appeal of BARS Group to Arbitration court. The company considered that requirements are illegal and it is not obliged to pay the second time the same taxes.
As it appeared, money did not reach because just in the October in the Note bank (the major shareholder was a certain Fanida Komarova) taking the 97th place in the rating of the Russian banks problems with liquidity began. From the Moscow bank specializing in service of defense industry enterprises there was an abnormal outflow of funds in connection with information on the preparing changes limiting state companies in the choice of bank for investment of funds. As reported Vedomosti, "nullify" the accounts the Rostec state corporation instructed the structures, in particular. As a result in bank about 20 billion rubles of means of the defense enterprises among which, for example, Almaz-Antey concern all the same got stuck.
Meanwhile moreover advance payment at once in two quarters tax specialists considered early transfer of the large amount without providing the tax declaration extremely suspicious. According to them, the management of BARS Group knew that they will not receive money from bank any more, and thus decided to use somehow them with advantage for itself, having given assignment to bank to list them in tax.
— We consider the requirements to tax specialists legal and reasonable — the lawyer of BARS Group said on it. — Payment of a tax in advance does not mean application of any doubtful schemes. And operating by such concepts as "removal of money", in our opinion, is attempt to mislead court and to put pressure upon it.
— Explain what pressure consists in? — the judge started.
— The tax authority tries to prove that our partner and we were engaged in some illegal transactions. Thus, it tries to make at court a false impression about our activity — the lawyer told.
— This right of each party participating in a dispute! — the judge answered.
— On our checking account means arrived, we sent these funds for payment of taxes, and the bank charged this money off our checking account. The fact of write-off says that we executed the duties. Thereby further responsibility on promotion of this money to the corresponding budget accounts lies already on bank, but not on us. As this bank is recognized as insolvent and concerning it enforcement proceeding, tax authority is opened not to lose this money, it is obliged to direct relevant requirements about inclusion of in the list of creditors of bank — the lawyer of BARS Group advised, having warned tax specialists that if they miss the submission due date of such requirement established by the law, then will not enter the list of creditors, and it can be regarded as negligence of tax authorities, incomplete execution of the direct duties. — Therefore they first of all should attend to join in the register of requirements of creditors the Note bank — the lawyer of BARS Group emphasized.
Representatives of tax authority of charge of negligence were perturbed excessively.
"BARS Group because it with bank had civil relations on budget contribution of money in the absence of an obligation for payment of a tax acts as the creditor of bank. At that time we had no public relations on payment of taxes" — tax specialists said.
Besides, according to them, information on problems in bank was public, on the Internet it appeared still on August 31, 2015 when Nota-bank stops settlings with individuals.
"The applicant had enough time to show discretion and to think before transferring large sums of money for payment of a tax" — noted in tax authority.
Moreover, according to them, on a checking account in the Nizhny Novgorod bank branch VTB BARS Group has several tens of millions of rubles that would be enough for payment of a tax for the third quarter without any risks much.
"This account is deposit, and we use it as an insurance pillow for ourselves — we hold 18 - 25 million rubles for unforeseen payments or for salary payment there in time if our partners do not pay off us in time" — there was in reply a lawyer of BARS Group.
According to him, the tax authority illegally shifts responsibility from bank to the company and goes on the easiest way.
"I understand, to them, of course, it is easier — bank already the bankrupt, and it is unknown how many money from them can be taken. And we the operating large enterprise, money are available for us, and it is easier for them to collect money from us. Concerns nobody that as a result of illegal actions of tax authority we can also appear on the verge of bankruptcy and 700 people will lose the work location. For tax specialists the most important — to receive in any manner money from the operating enterprise" — the lawyer complained to the judge.
Further link exchange on judgments which were for benefit of tax authorities and taxpayers in similar situations followed. In the end links to decisions of the Supreme Court went, and here tax specialists showed a trump ace — the decision of the Constitutional court of the Russian Federation of 10/12/98 No. 24-P where it is said that though the tax payment is really set off after the date of transmission to bank of the payment order, this rule extends only to those payers who "act honesty".
Having listened to the parties which before each other waved packs of the printed sheets, the judge left on a meeting and in five minutes announced the refusal in the satisfaction of the claim of BARS Group. Yes! — one of lawyers of tax authority commented, having made characteristic gesture. Having left the hall of a meeting, tax specialists congratulated each other on a victory and even wished all good to the become sad lawyers of BARS Group.
