Many types of international business can be conducted remotely, sometimes completely online. As a rule, a registered address is enough to start a business activity, a little less often a local contact person or sales representative is also required. However, when it comes to a business with high turnover or a business that requires a license, regulators and banks require a real presence in the country. Strictly speaking, “substance” means the physical presence of a business in a jurisdiction. RLA Services helps clients with substance in most popular business areas: EU, UK, CIS, Hong Kong and many others.
