Accreditation of Representative offices of foreign companies in the territory of the Russian Federation

Most of the foreign companies start doing business in the Russian Federation through their permanent Representative offices. A foreign company’s Representative office acts for the foreign legal entity and maintains representation of its interests in the territory of the Russian Federation. That is why registration of Representative offices is a topic of interest, especially as registration procedure was substantially amended in the course of the several previous years. We have huge experience of registration foreign company’s Representative offices.


Accreditation of a foreign legal entity’s Representative office in Russia takes place at the State Registration Chamber with the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation. A Representative office may be opened only in accordance with the resolution of the accreditation authority. Accreditation is available for 1, 2 or 3 years and may be prolonged if required. A Representative office receives establishment permission.



Accreditation of a Representative office in the territory of RF consists of several procedures:

- accreditation in the State Registration Chamber;
- registration with the tax authority (FTS of Russia);
- assignment of international economic activity codes (RNCEA);
- registration with non-budgetary funds (PFRF, SIF);
- opening of an account in a bank and registration of a stamp for the Representative office.
