Understanding Russian Corporate Structures – Sayari Learn

A limited liability company (LLC) is defined by Russian law as an entity whose authorized capital is divided into parts. These parts are owned by the company’s participants. 

An LLC discloses its current participants on its Russia Federal Tax Registry corporate record. This is the section of the document that says “Information on the founders (participants) of the legal entity [Сведения об учредителях (участниках) юридического лица].” This information is usually found on page three of the document. 

This section provides a start date for when the individual or entity became a participant in the company. It also includes an observation date for stated percentage of ownership. This percentage of ownership is true as of the date of document. Of course, the percentage of ownership is no longer true if the company is closed.
