Choosing a form of business ownership

When creating a legal entity, the advantages and disadvantages of various forms of business ownership applicable should be correctly evaluated for each particular situation.

Estimation of the authorized capital value, the value and structure of founders’ contributions, the property transferred to the entity being created, etc.

When creating a legal entity, irrespective of its form of business ownership, it is important to estimate the value and structure of the property transferred by the founders to the entity being created. Numerous factors including whether this entity actually needs this property and the distribution of votes and future profit between the founders (participants), which mainly depends on the volumes of their contributions, must be taken into account.


Estimation of legal entity management bodies and their competence

Competent and justified formation of the legal entity management bodies and the distribution of their authorities will make it possible to manage the legal entity efficiently and taking into account its participants’ interests to the maximum possible extent.


Creation of a legal entity by foreign founders

Creation of a legal entity by foreign founders is associated with specific difficulties. This is due to the potential movement of capital through the border of the Russian Federation and necessity to legalize foreign documents. There are also other specific features related to the creation of Russian legal entities with foreigners’ participation.


Taking into account the requirements of the anti-monopoly legislation and corporate standards

The creation of holding (managing) or intra-holding legal entities adds additional requirements to the qualification of the specialists dealing with it.

In particular, the creation of entities of this type is often connected with the necessity to take into account antimonopoly legislation requirements. For a legal entity which is a part of a holding, it is also important to include clauses concerning limitation of executive bodies, authorities, and other clauses complying with the corporate policy into the incorporation documents.


Registration of agreements between the founders

If there are special agreements between the founders of a legal entity, our specialists help to register them correctly and create the respective documents.


Special features related to joint-stock companies

If joint-stock companies take part in the creation of a legal entity, information about them, if required, is disclosed according to the legislative requirements.


Analysis of the planned operations regarding whether licenses or permits are needed

If the legal entity being created carries out any types of activities that are subject to obtaining a license, additional requirements to this legal entity are taken into account as early as possible in the phase of its preparation for the state registration.


Taking into account other specific features related to legal entity creation

When needed, work permits for foreigners are obtained and the property transferred to the legal entity’s authorized capital is estimated.
