The Federal Tax Service's new service will enable a copy of the articles of association of any company to be obtained via Gosuslugi

The Federal Tax Service has launched a new service enabling any person to obtain free of charge copies of the constituent documents of any legal entity contained in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities (EGRUL) and amendments made to them in the form of an electronic document by authorization through Gosuslugi (ESIA).

After compulsory authorization, any interested person will be able no more than 10 times a day:

- find and view, with respect to a particular company, the list of documents contained in the EGRUL that can be obtained in electronic form;

- choose from the list of documents to receive them electronically.

In case a legal entity acts on the basis of a model charter, information on the number of the model charter and the possibility to download such model charter is provided.

In accordance with Article 6 of the Federal Law of 08.08.2001 № 129-FZ “On State Registration of Legal Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs” copies of constituent documents of a legal entity can be issued even if they contain passport data of individuals.

The service does not yet allow obtaining copies of other documents contained in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, except for constituent documents. If necessary or if it is not possible to obtain the necessary documents using the service, the user may apply to the registration authority at the location of the legal entity to obtain them.
