How to choose a country or region for expansion?
To do this, you need to decide on the answers to the following questions:
Who will be potential buyers of your products and services?
Which countries have the highest concentration of your target audience?
What is the taxation in a country with optimal opportunities for sales growth of your product or service?
Where are the best specialists in the development of your product and its production concentrated? What are the mandatory conditions for hiring local staff from the state? What tax losses will you expect in connection with the hiring of foreign staff?
What are the conditions for registering a company or branch in the country where your market has the greatest potential for growth?
Is it possible to open a foreign account to a branch of a Russian company in this country? The question is completely far-fetched, because many large foreign banks do not work with Russian companies, their branches and beneficiaries from Russia, for fear of sanctions from the US Federal Reserve, which is their controller.
Especially if your Russian company is little known abroad or it is a startup. Another thing if you are a foreign company. In this case, you will have much less questions. They will not even particularly look at the beneficiaries from Russia. The main thing is that your legal entity was registered in the same country where you intend to open a bank account, attract specialists and continue to work.
