Since January 1, 2015, new rules have entered into force for the accreditation of representative offices and branches of foreign companies in Russia (Law of the Russian Federation of 05.05.2014 N 106-FZ).

From January 1, 2015 accreditation of representative offices of foreign companies is carried out in the inspection of the Federal Tax Service of Moscow No. 47. The representation is entered into the state register of accredited branches and representative offices indefinitely until the decision of the parent company to close it.
