1. Preparation of documents for the parent company
- A document that confirms the legal status of a company opening a branch in the Russian Federation. The ideal option is an extract from the state register of legal entities. Such registers are maintained by many countries (Switzerland, Spain, Germany, etc.). But at the same time, there are many countries that do not issue extracts from the register of legal entities or do not keep a single register of legal entities (Cyprus, etc.). In this case, any document that can confirm the existence of the company and its legal status (say, a certificate of registration) should be submitted.
- A document indicating the taxpayer code and confirming registration as a taxpayer in our country. It is issued by the authorized body of the country where the legal entity is registered. There may also be difficulties. Not all countries assign a tax number to legal entities. If the number is not assigned, it is worth contacting the tax authority at the location of the parent organization for an explanation letter.
- Articles of Association, Memorandum of Association, Decision on establishing a company, etc. The list of corporate documents varies from country to country. It is recommended to provide all documents that are possible, with the exception of irrelevant ones at the time of submission.
