Hi,

I'm looking for any information on how to work as a freelance translator in Russia (legal requirements, taxes, registration, permit of work necessary?, etc.).

I just moved here and don't know where to start, so any help would be greatly appreciated!icon_smile.gif

Also, first of all - fill out your profile. And, is freelance some fresh idea that's just hit you, or you have actually done it before?

Legal matters really depend on the fact, if you're resident or not. If you're citizen, or if you're becoming one, I could give you some hints. Actually, you are in tax heaven=)
For non-residents conditions are much tougher, but I don't know much about them.

Hi, Nov 2, 2008

I moved from France to Russia about a month ago. I am living in Moscow.

I don't have a resident status yet, but I applied for a temporary permit of residence and should get it soon.

I graduated from a translation institute in Strasbourg, France in September. I also spent time as an intern in several translation agencies over the past few years.
I am just starting off, but translation has always been my goal and it's not a fresh idea at all...

I hope I provided you with enough information to help me find how to proceed.

Thanks a lot for your help anyways.icon_smile.gif

Ok,

My colleague, Vladimir Shelukhin, recommended this link, where you will probably find much of the information you are seeking

http://www.pwc.com/extweb/pwcpublications.nsf/docid/E70BAEC31B0C17D8802571FC005699D4

It has all the general information about doing business in Russia, including various tax aspects.

Hope it helps

Vadim, one can actually be a Russian resident while remaining a citizen of whatever other country. Those are two different things.
