Staffing Services in Russia

Despite the general ban on secondment and staffing in Russia, the law states that under certain conditions the provision of personnel is possible if performed by private employment agencies with state accreditation and for a period up to 9 months. This allows companies to keep applying the simplified taxation system to their business while increasing their staff numbers to over 100 employees. At the same time, it is an optimal temporary solution for foreign and Russian businesses to start their operations without setting up a legal entity in Russia. As for hiring foreign nationals, staffing can help to avoid the risks in case of State Labor Inspection checks.

Awara was officially accredited by the Federal Labor and Employment Service to offer services of temporary personnel provision (employer of record (EOR)). Our employment agency can assist you with:
