If you are a representative of a foreign company that has intention to open its branch in Kazakhstan, we will help you to forget about small problems and lengthy process of preparation of documents. Our company helps foreigners to open their representative offices in the country. We provide legal assistance in conducting business.
Opening own branch, the foreign company automatically takes property responsibility and obligations related to conducting business in the Republic of Kazakhstan. It should be noted that the representative office can carry out own activity exclusively from the date of registration. There are no time limits. There are some differences that need to be considered between the concept of representative office and branch.
Representative office of a foreign company in Kazakhstan can protect and represent interests of the main office. The company in the territory of our country can take part in the auctions, conduct advertising campaigns, conclude bargains in the RK and other. Also, the representative office officially protects the company rights.
The branch is distinguished by the fact that it allows conducting of various economic activities. It turns out that the branch, in fact, can carry out all or partial functions of the company in Kazakhstan, including representative ones. Branches can carry out any commercial activity specified in the Charter of the main company in the territory of our country.
With all the differences, the branches and representative offices have the status of a permanent establishment and are taxpayers in accordance with the tax legislation in Kazakhstan. Most often, the main tasks that the representative office / branch faces after the opening are as follows:
The whole activity of branches and representative offices is approved by the main office, and Leader is selected by the main company and acts in accordance with the received authorities. A foreigner or a citizen of Kazakhstan may be appointed as a Leader. It should be noted that for a foreign director it is not necessary to prepare a work permit. This feature is often decisive when starting a business in Kazakhstan.
According to the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan - On State Registration of Legal Entities and Accounting Registration of Branches and Representative Offices (No.2198 dated April 17, 1995), their opening is conducted at registration in the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Kazakhstan and territorial bodies (further the Registering authorities). The procedure is no different and is the same for both variants.
For registration it is necessary to provide the relevant authority with the following documents:
