Chose the specifics of the business for the LLC Company

This is the stage of registration of an LLC in Russia, where it is required to identify several important points:

  • Name of the enterprise: you need to consider the name of the LLC company, both in Russian and English. It should be unique. You can inspect it online in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities. If you have discovered an LLC company with an identical name, it is better to reach up for another name;
  • The legal address of the LLC company: registration of the LLC company with the legal address in the Russian Federation carries a place in the tax examination.

There are three methods to get a legal address for a company:

  • Lease or purchase an apartment/office/room where you plan to accommodate the staff;
  • To enlist the company at the home address of the founder or director of the LLC company.
  • sign an agreement with the postal secretary service for the provision of a legal address in Moscow or another city in the country;
  • OKVED activity code: when enlisting an LLC company in Russia, it is important to determine what type of business you will be doing. The activity code is established from the OKVED classifier. It is freely available;
  • Authorized capital: before you enlist an LLC company with the legal address of the Russian Federation, you need to resolve what official capital your enterprise will have. This is the amount deposited into the business structure’s current bank account. The minimum is 10,000 rubles. You can either deposit money or leave the property as collateral. This can be done before or after you submit the documents for registration of the LLC company or within four months;
  • Preparation of papers for opening an LLC company. You should own it in your hands: 1) the conclusion of the sole founder of the company or the minutes of the meeting of founders of the open LLC company (in writing); 2) the approved Articles of Association of the open LLC company; 3) the agreement on the establishment (this paragraph is relevant if there are two or more founders ).
