Open A Branch In Russia

Introduction to setting up a Russian branch

Russia encourages foreign investment in many business sectors of the country and a range of incentives are available. The country has a massive consumer market and can also be advantageous to branches looking to access the markets of CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries.


What are the formalities regarding Russian branches?

  • A copy of the parent company’s Certificate of Incorporation
  • A copy of the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the parent company
  • A copy of the parent company’s Certificate of Good Standing
  • A copy of the parent company’s corporation charter
  • A Russian branch representative
  • A registered Russian office address
  • The resolution of the parent company to establish the branch

In order for the branch to be registered, these documents are required to be filed with the State Chamber of Registration of the Ministry of Justice (SRC).

All documents are required to be notarised, apostilled and translated into Russian by an official translator.


What are the accounting requirements for a Russian Branch?

The branch is subject to Russian taxation and must register with the designated Branch Tax Inspectorate from the Federal Tax Service in order to be taxed appropriately.

Tax reports should be filed quarterly and VAT reports monthly.
