Under what conditions should think about registering companies abroad:

  • main part of your customer is abroad.
  • Bank makes absurd demands in terms of submission of documents confirming the cooperation with other companies (example: a contract confirming the cooperation with the App Store, Google Play, etc., certified by signature and wet stamp director and notarized translation of the treaty).
  • you specialize in developing mobile applications for the App Store, Google Play, etc.
  • income exceeds 30.000 USD per year.
  • For you
  • burdensome constant communication with the tax authorities, statistics, etc.
  • You found an investor, but its assets are located abroad.

Position legislator.

primarily question the legality of this step. It is important to remember that the laws of the Russian Federation is not prohibited, and therefore allowed to do business in the jurisdiction of a State not citizenship.



Registering a company in an offshore jurisdiction , for the implementation of mobile applications rargabotki is undoubtedly an effective solution to the issues of taxation and personal security company owners (beneficiaries). To date, a decent replacement offshore no organizational structure.

Since 2004, the world began to gain momentum trend among legislators pursuing goals complication of the process to minimize taxes. However, regulation at the national level, is poorly suited to limit virtual businesses. In addition, measures to combat tax avoidance in each state were taken and their own, not the best, as national legislators experience in developing IT business scope restrictions in most cases, no.

Among the control measures can be identified such:

  • Acceptance of changes in contracts "for the avoidance of double taxation" with certain offshore (goal - to discriminate against a particular industry in a given jurisdiction and return the market segment in its jurisdiction).
  • adoption of special rules on the payment of taxes for certain types of business by introducing the licensing requirements in the country of provision.
  • introduction of a number of requirements for banks conducting customer payments such companies (target - complication of cooperation with the company).

Unfortunately, these and other measures are not part of some coherent philosophy of Roman law, they would rather have the character of "interim measures" for conflicts that arise from the development of technology.

Nevertheless, the development of legislation continues and improves the skills legislator. For example, in the European Union by 2015, through the mechanism of European conventions are adopted new rules of e-commerce, which will unify the situation within the EU.

Currently most developed and transparent legislation in respect of the United States has a virtual business. But on the other hand the United States is the state of the case law and its administrative structure provides some sparsity in the legislation of each state so in any case, running a business requires a good legal training.
