Russian Bank Accounts for your Business in Russia
A Russian bank account is essential in order to perform transactions in Russia. We help international companies in Russia with the opening and management of Russian business bank accounts. Normally, the opening of one or more Russian bank accounts is made in connection with the business formation. The management of the Russian bank accounts including online banking, is offered by us in combination with the Accounting Outsourcing.
Regarding Russian Bank Accounts, we perform the following services for our clients:
- Opening of the Russian bank accounts in ruble and in all other common currencies (e.g. EUR, CHF, USD and further);
- Installation of the online banking;
- Management of the Russian bank accounts with the authority of the client;

- Further services that have to do with the Russian bank account.
What to do in case of a blocking of the bank account?
A functioning business bank account to execute or receive transactions is in Russia essential. If the business bank account is blocked, transfers to suppliers, employees or partners are no longer possible.
What can be the reasons for the blocking of a bank account?
- the tax reports have not been handed in in time;
- the tax liabilities have not been paid or have been paid too late;
- the accreditation of the representative office has not been renewed in time;
- the liquidity is too low to pay bills or
- the bank account has been blocked by mistake.
Of course, the blocking of a bank account should be avoided under any circumstances. This is why we as a professional outsourcing and consulting company act especially careful. Our advice to avoid a blocking of a bank account:
- authorize professional, well trained and experienced employees to supervise your business bank account only;
- make sure that all mandatory documents and information for the creation of currency reports and deal passports are delivered to the bank on time;
- do not rely on the Russian post. Make sure that important documents are delivered by reliable and trustworthy couriers always.
- always make sure that you do not run out of liquidity. It is recommended to maintain a safety buffer equivalent to three months of expenses;
- take care of extending the accreditation of your representative office soon enough;
- make sure to report a change in the data or the replacement of the general manager or other authorized persons to the bank immediately.
