How to buy business from or in Russia?

Buying Russian business, it is very important to assume all assets which belong to it. If in Europe it is very clear that all assets and property using in business belong to the company, in Russia it may be in a different way. Very often in order to achieve more fruitful business environment entrepreneurs use different ways to divide their property or business branches. For example, the owner can be registered as entrepreneur and lease a land or estate to his own company (where he is a sole shareholder or has majority in shares) in order to lend it to third parties. In this case it is very difficult to measure all aspects of business related to the entrepreneur.

If you get an offer from Russian businessman you shouldn’t rush. Take your time to analyze all papers and get some advice about all assets and entire business model. Russian business has its own way and it is necessary to know all about it. Even tiny detail may lead you in wrong direction and get you in trouble.

Of course, all work depends on what kind of business is considering for buying. Different business in Russia are managed in different ways. That’s why it is important to measure how difficult it is to gather all assets in one hand or arrange all work the way which lead to proper result.
