BUSINESS SET-UP & DEVELOPMENT

 

Registering a company in Russia is, at first glance, not complicated. In the Russian regions though, subjectivity can play a major role in the procedures and their success. Knowing the local administrations, reliable partners (banks, notaries, lawyers…) and having a team familiar with problematics of foreign companies setting up subsidiaries in Russia is a real time-saver and helps you avoid bad surprises.

Swiss Center Samara provides support at all stages of business set up and long-term support to foreign companies establishing operations in the Volga Region.

BUSINESS SET-UP

Our local team and administrative specialists accompany you, in English and/or French, through each step of the registration process to save up time and money and ensure a smooth process.

Company Registration

  • Determining the legal form of the company;
  • Preparing the legal and administrative documents, including notarized translations;
  • Submitting the documents to the competent authorities;
  • Opening a company bank account;
  • Registering the company by the local Tax authorities, Social and Pension Funds;

Interim Management

Until you can send your specialist from abroad or find the right manager for your newly created company, we offer interim management solutions: Swiss Center Samara manages the company and performs the administrative and legal tasks on your behalf.

Office Solutions

Thanks to our partnership with a dynamic local company, Swiss Center Samara offers full office solution in Samara; either virtually or physically. You can start tomorrow with:

  • Local address and independent phone number;

HR Solutions

If you do not feel ready yet to register a Russian legal entity, you can use a structure already established and operational: Swiss Center Samara. We hire and pay your representative and employees while you manage and work with them:

  • Recruitment of staff on your behalf within our Russian subsidiary;
  • Payroll and administrative support, incl. taxes and social insurances;
  • Management, time-control and assistance based on your requirements.

We also work with several federal and local HR agencies to ensure that you can recruit the best candidates.

BUSINESS SUPPORT

Bureaucracy is unfortunately still a reality in Russia. Recruiting requires market knowledge and experience too.

Accounting & Taxes

Swiss Center Samara unburdens you of all accounting and reporting tasks related to your company. Outsourcing these tasks is by far more cost-effective and allows you to focus on other tasks. We can cover the following:

  • Bookkeeping (daily, weekly, monthly);
  • Payroll, taxes, social and pension funds;
  • Quarterly reports to the tax authorities;
  • Documentation for all monetary transaction (transfers, invoices, payments, currency control…).
