News in regulating document workflow in the course of state registration of legal entities starting from January 1, 2016
Amended procedure for submitting documents
Starting from January 1, 2016 in certain events an application for state registration is to be submitted to the Unified State Register of Legal Entities (the “EGRUL”) by a notary only, in particular:
- When concluding a sale and purchase agreement of a share (or part of a share) in a company’s charter capital;
- When concluding an agreement for pledge of a share (or part of a share) in a company’s charter capital.
In Letter dated January 11, 2016, the Federal Tax Service explained that the notary shall not only send documents to the EGRUL, but shall also personally sign the respective applications (previously such applications were signed by the seller and/or pledger). That provided, the notary shall send the application to the registering authority only in form of an electronic document signed by an enhanced certified digital signature of such notary.
Amended procedure for obtaining documents
Starting from January 1, 2016, in all events when the notary submits documents for state registration, the registering authority shall send to the notary the documents confirming record in the respective state register or denial of state registration. That provided, the registering authority shall not issue such documents in hard copies to the applicant or its representative.
