Apply personally

Often companies face a problem when the deadline is running out, and the penalty did not want to pay. In such cases, the «magic wand» becomes a mail. This possibility is used, for example, an accountant at the time statements, or companies working with foreigners, for different notifications. By law, the responsibility of the sender at the time the documents shall be deemed fulfilled upon affixing postal stamp with the date on the inventory investment.
In Russian judicial practice there are cases of poor execution of duties by the postal authorities. For example, the postmaster may fail to register a letter or a package may be lost. All risks of late delivery of documents will be borne by the sender.
Having extensive experience with documents and authorities, experts recommend Smithbridge companies personally to submit documents to the court and to the mark on the second copy. In our view, this will reduce the likelihood of inspections and the risk of prosecution for late delivery.

Such a ban is introduced in the Leningrad region, approved only 13 posts, for which it is impossible to employ foreigners who make patents. It is interesting to imagine citizens of other States as a teacher or consultant in Russian law.
