What are the peculiarities of the registration procedure?

In a nutshell, the algorithm is as follows:

  • Make the decision to create a branch - it must be taken at the official level in the company, fixing everything in the appropriate document. The document, of course, must be signed by those persons of the company who have the right confirmed by the Articles of Association or the power of attorney;

  • Prepare everything for the registration application - you need to prepare all the documents that are submitted with it, as well as fill in the application form. It is important not to forget the power of attorney for the person who will pass the documents for registration. As a standard, drafts of all documents are prepared by our lawyers. They are constantly in touch with the state body to settle any issues;

  • Submit all documents to the Ministry of Economic Development. Among the documents must be a certificate of registration of the parent company, or other document certifying its registration, issued by the authorized body in the country of registration;

  • Pay the state fee;

  • After the registration of the representative office itself, all that remains is to get registered with the local tax authorities. According to the new procedure, it is not the representative office that becomes registered, but the foreign parent company itself - our lawyers clarify the whole procedure in the process
