Accreditation of Branches of foreign companies

Most foreign companies do business in the Russian Federation (hereinafter RF) through their subdivisions (Representative offices or Branches). A Branch fulfils all the functions of a foreign legal entity or part of it, including functions of a Representative office, and is located away from the principal place of business of the company itself.  Our company has great experience in accreditation of foreign companies’ Branches in RF.



Accreditation of a Branch of a foreign legal entity in RF takes place in the State Registration Chamber with the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation (hereinafter SRC). A Branch of a foreign legal entity may be opened only on the resolution of the accreditation authority.



Accreditation of a Branch in the territory of RF consists of several procedures:
- accreditation of a Branch in the State Registration Chamber;
- obtainment of documents of foreign entity’s Branch in the SRC;
- submission of documents for approval and affirmation of a stamp’s sketch of the Branch to the SRC and adding the sketch in the Stamp Registry;
- registration with the tax authority for the locality of the Branch;
- assignment of international economic activity codes;
- registration with non-budgetary funds (PFRF, SIF);
- opening of an account in a bank.

You can receive all these services as a whole or separately in our company.
