General information on organizational forms
The most popular forms of company registration in Russia and almost all of the CIS countries are Limited Liability Company (LLC) and Joint Stock Company (public and private JSC).
Limited liability company is a company founded by one or several persons, whose charter capital is divided into shares of specific nomination as determined by the foundation documents. Participants in a limited liability company are not liable for the company obligations and assume the risk of losses associated with the activities of the company only to the extent of the value of their invested contributions.
JSC (open; closed)
A joint stock company whose participants may divest themselves of shares they own without consent of other shareholders is an open joint stock company. Such a joint stock company has the right to conduct open subscription for the shares issued and their free sale on conditions set forth by the law and other legal acts.
A joint stock company whose shares are distributed only among its founders or some other previously defined circle of people is a closed joint stock company. Such a company does not have the right to conduct open subscription for the shares issued, or offer shares for acquisition by the general public through some other means.
Also, it is possible to register a Representative office or Branch office of your company, which in general are not legal entities, but have some tax and customs advantages.
A representative office is a physically separated subdivision of a legal entity located away from its headquarters, which represents and protects the interests of a legal entity.
A branch office is a physically separated subdivision of a legal entity, located away from its headquarters and performing all of its functions or part thereof (including commercial activity), including the functions of representation.
