  • Distribution of the authorized capital if the company is registered by more than 1 citizen;
  • Type of activity;
  • Director – if it is a foreign citizen – he will need to obtain a work permit and work visa.


To open a company, an individual will need:

Translation of passport of a foreign citizen (certified by a Russian notary) plus:

  • Charter;
  • Decision;
  • Application;
  • Confirmation of payment of a State fee in the amount of 4000 Rubles (approximately 50 Euro).

The consultation lasted around 2 hours and during this time we managed to discuss all the details related to the set up of company with a foreign participants and all the matters we will need to handle in regards to corporate and labor law.
