You only need to contact our Russian desk and you will avoid spending time and energy on finding the right authority or advisory services in the other country.
Russia stays one of the most attractive countries to invest in due to large consumer markets, vast natural resources, favorable geographic position and attractive taxation system. The support of private business by the Russian government through subsidies and special tax regimes as well as Russia’s recent membership in WTO expand the perspectives of making business in Russia.
We can help you get closer to the Russian markets across the border and offer advice on the establishment of a representative office, a branch or a subsidiary in Russia. We can answer the questions that naturally arise when you enter the Russian market.
If your company is active in Russia or in the process of becoming active, we offer assistance with the following:
Danish stable economy, transparent business environment, favorable locations linking continental Europe with the Nordic and Baltic countries, efficient transport infrastructure and innovative technologies have proven to be effective factors attracting foreign investors. Thus, it is not surprising that import from Russia to Denmark is developing very positively and the Scandinavian energy-efficient technologies experience growing demand from Russian companies for knowledge sharing and cooperation.
