CXC Russia sponsors work permits and work visas for Highly-qualified foreign specialists.
As a CXC Employee a contractor will have a work contract, directly related to their professional work. This work contract will form the basis on which CXC will obtain their work permit for them. In order to obtain a work permit they need a valid work contract and a minimum “salary” of EUR 50,000 per annum (Importantly the overall contract value should be of the order of EUR 60,000 per annum. With currency fluctuations please confirm this figure from time to time.)
Work Permit (Right to Work in Russia)
Prior to the Contractor starting work in Russia CXC will make all applications for a Work Permit (Permission to Work in Russia) on their behalf. The Contractor will be responsible for the timely delivery, by courier, of a list of requested support documents. An invitation will then issue for the separate document – Work Visa, which may be collected at Contractor’s local Russian Embassy.
Work Visa (Right to Enter Russia to take up Work)
A Work Visa (Permission to Enter Russia to take up work) is applied for at the same time as a Work Permit. Whilst most nationalities require a Work Visa some former Soviet Union citizens do not require this document.
Registration and Handholding for your Contractor.
Once in Russia CXC will carry out the following local registration requirements for your Contractor:
Registration with migration
Personal Tax for your Contractor
Russia operates a 13% flat tax with few easily reclaimable allowances. Tax is due on all income irrespective of the amount. Taxation applies not only to income but also to benefit in kind.
As Employer of your Contractor CXC will ensure that the Contractor is always locally tax compliant for all declared income. Foreign workers are subject to stringent three month inspections and reporting – a process which CXC will manage fully for the Contractor, keeping the Agency/ Client remote from this process.
