General Director Function in Russia

The General Director Function is mainly temporary limited provision of management resources and skills.

We provide Interim General Director Services for your subsidiary in Russia for a short or long term period.

Specifics of the position of the General Director Russia

Under Russian corporate law the General Director (CEO) possesses much more comprehensive rights than a German CEO. Until 2014 it was not possible in Russia to implement the requirement that a minimum of two or more directors or one director in combination with an authorized representative are authorized to take main decisions.

According to changes in the Civil Code of the Russian Federation since September 1, 2014 a company may set up several General Directors (who are authorized to sign together or individually). However this will still need to be proved in praxis. Based on the Russian mentality and structures it is a question of how to deal with innovation and if appropriate employees with corresponding management qualifications are available.

Because of this many companies appoint a representative of their headquarters as their General Director, who is not present in Russia on a permanent basis. In order to solve this problem our experienced Senior Project Managers take over the tasks of the General Director. In close coordination and consultation with your headquarters we manage your subsidiary. In a similar way we also take over, on the basis of a PoA, the management of a representative office or branch office. We ensure a smooth flow of documents. Administrative matters with authorities are dealt with within the framework of local legislation. Communication with the headquarters is done in your native language.

Tasks accomplished by us:

  • Consultation on and control of document flow
  • Personal presence at state authorities, if necessary
  • Signing of customs and tax declarations and other important documents upon agreement with the parent company
  • Signing of labour agreements, employment orders, vacations, payments of bonuses etc.

General Director Function in Belarus

General Director in Belarus

According to the local corporate law, a local General Director has significantly more power and control than a Managing Director of a Western company. For example it is not possible to transfer a signature authority to two managing directors together: the General Director always has the right to sign alone. Because of this, many companies designate a representative of the parent company, who is not present in the respective CIS country physically, as General Director. However a foreigner needs a work permit for this position. A work permit can only be applied for after the legal entity was registered.

In order to solve this problem, we take over the General Director function. We will sign documents for your Belarus/CIS subsidiary after receiving your written permission. Thus together we can ensure a smooth flow of the documentation.
