An appropriate means of transportation is necessary in order to make the journey as comfortable as possible. With various important business centers, foreign businessmen need to go from a Russian city to another and most them prefer to rent cars from local companies. This is how the Russian car rental and leasing industry has become quite developed during the last several years.

Below, our Russian lawyers explain how to set up a rental and leasing activities company in this country.

The appropriate business form for a car rental company in Russia

No matter if the future business owner is a local or a foreigner, he or she must know that the limited liability company is the most appropriate type of business form when starting a car rental and leasing company, as these activities are usually carried out a larger scale in Russia.

  • -          creating a large fleet of cars which offer various types of auto vehicles is crucial;
  • -          a great business idea is offering luxury car rental services, as Russia is often visited by important personalities.
