Registration of OOO or enterprise. How to open a company or organization?

Registration of OOO or enterprise. How to open a company or organization?

A limited liability company is the most widespread and legal and institutional form of doing business. This is due to easy operation of such companies and acceptable costs. Even the minimum amount of the authorized capital that is established at the legislative level might be contributed no later than the 4th month from the date of registration of the OOO. Today, the activities of an OOO are regulated by the relevant law and an extensive jurisprudence has been formed. The procedure for registering an OOO is now very simple and transparent. If you want to register a company, then you should read the information below.

What you should know of at the stage of registration of OOO or modification in The Uniform State Register of Legal Entities?

Information in documents submitted to the tax inspectorates for registration of the creation of an OOO or modification in Unified State Register of Legal Entities (about the address, participant, etc.) may be subjected to verification for accuracy. For example, due to the emergence of reasonable doubts about their reliability or any objections from the person concerned. The registering authority is able not only to study the documents, but also to receive explanations, to inspect the property (it is applied to verification of the address of the organization).

In order to stop the prevention of abuse and establish the non-involvement of the head (shareholder) of the organization in its activities, the founder, when creating a company, may be asked to answer questions, which will be drawn up by the fiscal authority in the appropriate protocol. These include issues of voluntariness of the establishment or management of a legal entity and the goals of creating a company, source of funding and who will pay the official payments and the services of third-party specialists also the location of the office and the relationship with the landlord of the premises, receiving correspondence, etc.

You can download the questionnaire form here. If during the verification activities there will be inaccuracies in the information included in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, the registering authority may decide to refuse state registration. If the inaccuracies in the information are established during the verification of information that is already included in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, then a record may be included in the register on the inaccuracies.

Legal ignorance of natural entities can be used by unscrupulous persons to abuse their privileges and lead to administrative prosecution (article 14.25 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation) or criminal. (Article 173.1., 173. 2. of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation)
