Russia has a market economy with enormous natural resources, particularly oil and natural gas. It has the tenth largest economy in the world by nominal GDP and the sixth largest by purchasing power parity.
In 2009 Russia was the worlds largest exporter of natural gas, the second largest exporter of oil and the third largest exporter of steel and primary aluminium.
Oil, natural gas, metals and timber account for more than 80% of Russian exports abroad.
As a result international companies are increasingly looking at Russia as a place to pitch their services. When providing services in Russia they will either have to relocate their own staff or source international contractors. It is very difficult to start a company in Russia as a foreign owned enterprise and as such if these companies wish to relocate their staff or source international contractors they will require a locally based Contractor Management Company to provide a full employed local solution for their employees. This will entail Russian Work Permits and local Russian payroll.
As an individual, working in Russia can be a highly rewarding experience, an opportunity to experience living in the europe, high earning rates and paying very low income tax!
