ANALYSIS OF LOCALISATION CRITERIA
We will assess the localisation rules that apply to your product(s) to establish if and how these criteria can be met, taking into account which components you plan to import and which can be purchased locally, and what manufacturing operations need to take place in Russia for your business to participate in government tenders. If these criteria are met, we can help you to obtain “Made in Russia” confirmation.
SITE SEARCH AND SELECTION
Based on your terms of reference, we will list requirements for the site in terms of its size, transport accessibility, possible restrictions and necessary engineering and logistics infrastructure. We will analyse available sites, and draw up a list of recommended options, taking into account tax preferences and available support measures.
DUE DILIGENCE AND NEGOTIATION SUPPORT
Working with your business, we will inspect the sites chosen. We will help prepare a pitch presenting the project and organise meetings with the management of industrial parks and regional authorities. If required, we can arrange for simultaneous interpreting at negotiations. We will carry out due diligence on the chosen site to minimise risks.
LEGAL SETUP AND BUSINESS PLAN
We will prepare necessary documents for the registration of a legal entity and complete the registration procedure for you. We will draw up or adapt your business plan for the investment project. If a project requires external funding, we will organise meetings with public and private investors. We will provide communication support to obtain better terms and interest rates.
We will help you to obtain a construction permit and select and examine a construction contractor (including their financial situation, licences and certificates for construction and installation work). If required, we will organise a tender to select a contractor. We will provide consultations on design and construction contracts / turnkey contracts.
We will organise the importation of manufacturing equipment and its certification for import into Russia, as well as efficient logistics for delivering it to your site. When planning logistics, we will take into account regional climactic zones and seasonal transport options. We will support your business in drafting complex trilateral engineering, procurement and construction contracts.
