Given the realities of the Russian business and current law, starting up a new enterprise requires a structured action sequence. It is necessary to determine in advance which legal entity type and taxation system will be used and who will be the chief executive, to register the new company, open a bank account, organise bookkeeping and tax records.

In order to determine optimal tax burden, ALTHAUS Group team will find the appropriate form of incorporation, complete all the necessary procedures to register and/or reorganize the legal entity, open its account with a bank, arrange for HR recordkeeping, bookkeeping and tax records; we will also provide legal support for financial and operational activities of your business and act as a governing body during the start-up phase.


Foreign companies prefer a different approach to business operations than their Russian counterparts and provide specific requirements to internal business processes and employee qualifications. Due to our long-term experience of cooperation with global companies, we are best positioned to offer solutions that fully meet the requirements and expectations of the management and employees of those customers. We offer both partial and comprehensive support of financial and business activities of any entity — bookkeeping and tax records, including payroll processing and HR record management, corporate reporting according to global standards, legal support, risk analysis and mitigation services for transfer pricing, consulting about corporate and global taxation, asset evaluation, and financial modelling.
