Expat guide: Business in Moscow
Here's a short guide to doing business in Moscow, from starting a business in Moscow to understanding Russian business culture.
Starting a business abroad
Starting a business abroad is easy, but you need to understand the local business culture. How do you register a business if you are an expat? What are the rules and regulations for expat entrepreneurs, including freelancers? Expatica’s business channel addresses the basics to help expats find their feet and start a business in unfamiliar territory. Articles like Managing in the 'Wild East' or Doing business in Russia will point you in the right direction. Lacking confidence? Women expats should read 'Ladies, start your own businesses!'
Company law and work permits
Expatica’s Business and Employment channels give the lowdown on local labour law and offer tips for expat businesses and expat entrepreneurs.
If you work as an expat in a big corporation or multinational company, make sure you understand the balance sheet methodology by reading the Expatica article, 'The balance sheet basics'.
Launching and running an expatriate-owned business might not be as straightforward as you imagined, especially when it comes to dealing with the locals. Learn about Business culture in Moscow and avoid the classic pitfalls of the newcomer. Be a chameleon and join the new breed of international managers who work across countries and cultures with ease.
