August 25, 2021 came in force the Federal Law No. 143-FZ dated 26.05.2021. We reported about the enactment in our notice dated 24.06.2021.

This Law amended the Federal Law "On State Registration of Legal Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs" and the Article 80 of the Fundamental Principles of Legislation of the Russian Federation on the Notaries.

According to the new rules the notaries who certified the authenticity of signatures on applications for state registration of legal entities or individual entrepreneurs are required to send independently on the same day the necessary information to the registration authorities in electronic form with a strengthened qualified signature.

Moreover location of the applicants or availability of a personal strengthened qualified signature does not matter.

These rules do not apply to certain types of legal entities whose registration requires special procedure by legislation.

The users of the Information and Analytical system Globas have access to the full, relevant and up-to-date information about more than 7 thousand notaries and notary chambers (including inactive).
