Every entity or accredited office requires a legal address where the office will be registered. This address must be communicated to the authorities at the time of registration and serves mainly as a contact for the authorities, in particular the tax office. It is not sufficient to rent a mailbox to obtain a legal address. It is necessary to enter into a lease or sublease agreement with a landlord.
Which documents confirm the ownership of a legal address in Russia?
- Lease or sublease agreement
- Ownership certificate of the landlord
- Written confirmation by the landlord that the address may be used as a legal address
The main methods for obtaining a legal address are: renting an office in Russia under a lease agreement or, if you do not want to rent an office, solutions that allow your company to reduce costs are either renting a co-working space or registering your legal address with Ausserer & Consultants
You should be aware that the legal address represents not only the address where your company is registered, it is also used by the Russian authorities to contact your company. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that this is a reliable address and not a so-called fictitious address in which several companies are registered by the lessor and this could attract the attention of the Russian authorities as well as representing an obstacle to opening a bank account.
