We establish a holding in a foreign country
A holding entity as a form of business implies several legal entities under the management of a parent company that holds the majority shares. These concepts are rather slurry in the Russian legislation unlike the legislation in Europe and other developed countries of the world. That is why holdings establishment in foreign countries can seem quite attractive for businessmen from the Russian Federation.
