Currently alienation of shares in a Russian company by its foreign shareholders from Europe, USA, Canada, Japan and some other countries may require the permission of Russian government.
This procedure has been recently updated. From now on, a foreign shareholder is required to pay 5% of the market value of the shares to be alienated.
If the shares are sold with a discount of more than 90% of their market value, the fee shall be 10%.
The price of the shares shall be confirmed by an appraiser’s report and an expert’s opinion.
