Russia has adopted and implemented a number of measures to support the development of an innovative economy.

There is considerable scope to use Ireland as a platform for investing into Russia.

The Russian economy is currently seeking to develop in quite an adverse foreign political and economic environment. Building on trends that started in previous years, there is an extensive combination of measures being implemented to improve Russia’s investment attractiveness, which as of today have led to positive results.

Working closely with Irish and international businesses, we have developed extensive capabilities in the Russian market. Our deep industry knowledge and experience means we can help you manage international business opportunities to your advantage.

There is considerable scope to use Ireland as a platform for investing into Russia. The attractions of using Ireland include:

  • Competitive cost base – significant competitiveness improvement 
  • English speaking 
  • Young, dynamic and well educated workforce 
  • Common law legal system 
  • Various withholding tax exemptions for interest and dividend payments 
  • Incentives for employees working in Russia
