Important! Our services DO NOT INCLUDE accounting and/or auditing! You can count on our advice for  choosing an accountant and/or auditor, but only if you ask us to!

Project management is different from project preparation activity. You can entrust us with the preparation of the project, but not its management afterwards - this is entirely your choice. Please see our price list for more information.
