Business Plans in Russia

Specifics of business plans for the Russian market

Business plans for Russia often include a plethora of uncertainties concerning cost calculation and time frame. There are often unexpected costs for personnel and office leases. The expenses for leasing a well-situated office in the center of Moscow are 300-500% higher than in Munich, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, or Frankfurt. Qualified personnel in Moscow (after deductions) often earn more than their counterparts in Germany. The business registration usually takes more time than planned.

We can help you with the development of your business plan. If you have already developed a plan, we can review it.

We can further advise you on ways to reduce your costs and accelerate organisational and planning tasks, such as the registration of your business.
