Question 14.01.2018

Good afternoon!

I really need advice.

We have a change of the Head of the Representative Office in Moscow. The Minutes of Board on the change of the Head, the Power of Attorney were issued last year, the deadlines were missed. I called the the Inter-district Inspectorate No. 47 in Moscow to ask whether it was possible for the new Head in Moscow to make a resolution with the current date «... to enforce the decision of the Board of Directors of July 17, ... to dismiss ..., to appoint... as the Head of the Representative Office...» , and thus the countdown of 15 days would go from this date. They said — Yes, this is the way it should be done.

I am confused by this moment: is the notary certification needed for the signature of the Head in this resolution (signed in Moscow, in Russian)? Or, like a power of attorney for a courier, you can sign it and place a seal of the representative office on it?

Good afternoon!

At the seminar on accreditation, the inspector commented on this situation. The signature on such a resolution should be certified by a notary. In your case (more than 15 calendar days have passed since the resolution date), you can use the Minutes of Board, the power of attorney and the resolution of the new Head of the Representative Office with a new date about assuming the authorities to act as a new Head of the Representative Office. Due to legalisation and translations, it is not always possible to submit documents to make changes timely, and when it comes to practice, the option with a resolution of a new Head always works
