Schmidt & Schmidt provides extracts from the commercial register of Russia on legal entities, partnerships and sole proprietors with a translation and an apostille as pdf-file via e-mail.
Russia has become a major commercial partner for many international companies. Unfortunately, foreign companies are especially prone to delays in payment and payment defaults. According to research done by the Economic Research Group Euler Hermes, Russia ranks among the least reliable countries in terms of payment behaviour. To anyone looking to minimise risks of business operations in Russia, an extract from the commercial register is an extensive and reliable first source of valuable information on your commercial partners in Russia. Extracts from the commercial register are mainly used to avoid various risks - like default of payment in export businesses - with russian business partners.
Throughout the past few years, the russian government has stepped up their efforts to create a safe and transparent environment for international operations in Russia. One of the steps taken was the introduction of a federal commercial register. At present, the system of extracts from the commercial register and disclosure of financial reports is more extensive and sophisticated than in many other european countries.
Extracts from the russian commercial register and financial reports offer your company the unique opportunity to obtain relevant information on the liquidity and the financial situation of your business partner in general. This will allow your company to considerably reduce risks involving bankruptcy during the business transactions and to immediately identify potential fraudsters.
Additionally we offer extracts from the russian commercial register on proprietors and managers of russian companies, who have been banned from business management due to various statutory violations.
The russian commercial register contains all available basic information on any legal entities, partnerships and sole-proprietors registered throughout the Russian Federation. Besides that, the register is a legitimate and reliable source for information on business partners in Russia.

Documents from Russia can only be recognised abroad, if they have been legalised accordingly. This means that their authenticity needs to be confirmed seperately. Russia has joined the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents in 1992. Therefore this confirmation takes place in the form of the so called apostille. This applies to the recognition of documents from other member states in Russia, as well. The apostille confirms the authenticity of the signatures and if required the authenticity of the seal or stamp.
