Business Information

Russia is a rather intriguing country regarding entrepreneurship. As it continues to grow, consumer demand adapts according to this, providing great opportunities for business. But when you want to open a company here, it is worth considering the features of the Russian economy and legislation. So let's look at a few arguments in favor of creating a business in the Russian Federation:
- liberalization of legislation. Foreign capital is guaranteed a national legal regime - the same as for Russians; moreover, the legislation guarantees protection of investments, the possibility of their unhindered withdrawal to their homeland, etc.
- the target audience. The population of the Russian Federation is approaching 150 million people, and there are also many large cities: for example, the number of St. Petersburg residents is 4 times higher than the population of all of Estonia.
- low professional level of Russian entrepreneurs. A foreign businessman, who offer a good-quality product or service at an affordable price, will be unrivaled.
- low price and simplicity of enterprise registration.
- low wages: the average salary in the Russian Federation is about $ 500, because of this many Chinese enterprises have already transferred their production capacities to Russia.
- the opportunity to own the entire business, and not just its share, unlike many other countries.



As it was already mentioned, Russian law is very loyal to foreign investors: the national legal regime has even been established in relation to foreign capital. This means that such companies use the same conditions, operating rules and benefits for doing business as Russian organizations. The only one feature of doing business here for foreigners is in a different legal status. So, what does a foreign citizen need to open his own company in Russia? In fact, observe a few simple conditions:
- legally stay or reside in Russia.
- at the time of opening a business, go through registration at the place of residence / stay.
- obtain a work permit or patent.
- issue the taxpayer identification number (TIN) in tax authorities
- attest, translate and notarize all documents provided to the registrar, if they are in a foreign language.

The most popular forms of entrepreneurial activity in the Russian Federation are the following:
- individual entrepreneurship;
- limited liability company;
- joint-stock company.

We also want to share with you the most popular directions for opening a small business in this country:
- Retail sale of food.
- Transport sphere - from public transportation to car services and car washes.
- The real estate market
- IT is one of the most progressively developing industries.
- Services sector.

And a few more advantages of the Russian Federation for doing business: a simplified tax system and low costs for starting a business, especially in comparison with European countries. Finally, based on the foregoing, opening a business in Russia is both test and moneymaker, it is only necessary to have perseverance, patience and maintain firmness. However, the reward is sure to come, and it will not be only one!
