Accreditation of representative offices and branches
The first step for the entry to the Russian market and investing into Russia is accreditation of a representative office or a branch.
A representative office and a branch have no status of a legal entity and are nothing more than a subdivision of a foreign company at the territory of the Russian Federation. As a rule, these structures study the market, establish economic connections and provide information services to potential and actual clients of the parent company.
Before commencing their activities, a representative office (branch) must undergo an accreditation procedure. We will be happy to provide to you the following services related to a support of this procedure:
- we provide consultations on all arising questions and help to choose the suitable form and status of a structural subdivision;
- we prepare the whole package of documents required for registration of a representative office;
- we accredit a representative office of the client with a relevant authorized body and register it with tax agencies;
- we provide support associated with the migration legislation, bank accounts, professional translation of documents, etc.
After accreditation of a representative office, we will be glad to provide it with current legal and accounting support in all areas of its activities.
Our company has experience of successful accreditation of dozens of structural subdivisions of companies of various countries and jurisdictions.
