MOSCOW, 1 Oct — PRIME. The Government of the Russian Federation approved new rules for accreditation of IT companies, according to which the revenue from activities in the field of information technology must be at least 30% of the total income of the company, and its employees must receive a salary not lower than the average for the country or the subject of registration.
In early September, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Digital Development Maxim Parshin recalled that the previous procedure for accrediting IT companies had become invalid. At the same time, he reported that the Ministry of Digital Development had already developed a draft resolution on a new procedure for accrediting IT companies, which was agreed with all interested federal authorities and constituent entities of the Russian Federation.
“Approve the attached regulation agreed with the Moscow government on state accreditation of Russian organizations operating in the field of information technology,” the government decree, published on the official portal of legal information, says.
According to the document, the Ministry of Digital Development of the Russian Federation must approve the list of activities in the IT sphere by November 1, and approve the administrative regulations for granting accreditation by December 1.
According to the new rules, for state accreditation in the register of IT companies, the organization’s revenue from activities in the field of information technology in the year preceding the application must be at least 30% of the company’s total revenue, and the average salary of employees of the organization for the last three months must be not lower than the average for the country or the subject of registration.
Accreditation will also be available to companies established less than a year before applying. Their income must exceed 1 million rubles, and the share of revenue from activities in the field of information technology must be at least 30%.
Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Digital Development, Maksut Shadayev, said that the state accreditation of the company would need to be confirmed every year.
