Registration of branches and representative offices

 

 

 Registration of branches and representative offices of the Russian companies in Tver and Tver region

 Branches and representatives are separate subdivisions, located outside the registered office of the legal entity.

 The branches and representative offices aren’t separate legal entities. The difference between a representative office and a branch is in the executed functions:

 The representative offices represent exclusively the Company’s interests and perform their protection; the branch performs all or part of the parent Company’s functions, including the ones on representation.

 Branches and representative offices are vested with the property by the legal entity, established them and act on the basis of the provisions, approved by it. The Heads of representative offices and branches are appointed by the legal entity and act on the basis of the power of attorney. The data about all existing representative offices and branches should be specified in the legal entity’s constituent documents.

 Due to this the first stage in establishment of a representative office or a branch should be in making of the amendments to the constituent documents of the legal entity itself. Generally, the name of the branch or representative office or its location is specified in the Charter. The branches and representative offices aren’t subject to state registration as they are not separate legal entities. But tax registration is obligatory.

 According to the Tax Code the legal entity is obliged to be registered for tax purposes at the location of the branch or representative office within 30 days upon its establishment. The following documents are provided to the tax inspection at the location of the branch or representative office:
