Instructions for making rouble payments to Russia

All following data of rouble payments must be entered in the Russian language, using Latin letters according to the Russian-Latin character chart.

  • Name of beneficiary: family-, first- and father’s name for private individuals; name and type of ownership (OOO, OAO, ZAO; for private enterprises - IP, etc) for legal persons.
  • Address and city of beneficiary.
  • 20-digit rouble current account number of beneficiary, with first number being 4, second 0, sixth 8 and seventh 1.
  • Beneficiary’s INN (taxpayer’s identification code) this 10-12-digit numerical code will be forwarded to you by the beneficiary.
  • Beneficiary’s KPP (beneficiary’s code), this 9-digit number will be forwarded to you by the beneficiary.
  • Code of currency transaction (VO), i.e. mandatory five-digit code, established by the Russian Central Bank, corresponding to the information entered in the payment description. List of VO-codes can be found here.
    NB! When determining the VO-code, always take residence in relation to Russia as basis. E.g. if you are a resident of Estonia and make a payment to a Russian resident, then you are a non-resident in relation to Russia and the beneficiary is a resident. Pursuant to that, select the code from the list of codes from non-resident to resident.
  • Beneficiary’s bank BIC code; this 9-digit identification code will be provided to you by the beneficiary.
  • Correspondent account of the beneficiary bank with the Russian Central Bank: 20-digit account number, which always begins with the combination “301” and the last three digits of which correspond to the last three digits of the BIK code.
  • KBK-number of the budget of the Russian Federation: 20-digit code for the payment of fines, fees or other charges of the Russian Federation; may not contain letters, spaces or other characters. If the beneficiary has not sent you the KBK-number and this is not specified on the bill/receipt, then you may leave the field empty.
  • Name, address and city of beneficiary bank.
  • If the beneficiary bank is a branch of main bank, then enter the following data for the banks:
    • Full name of the branch in the field of the beneficiary bank;

    • Amount and currency (RUB);
    • Number and date of bill and contract, description of payment (name of goods or service), VAT (NDS) amount or if the goods are not taxable, then “BEZ NDS) – all in the field of payment description.

In order to ensure smooth movement of payment, enter detailed description for the payment:

  • Number and date of contracts, bill or act;
  • Name of goods or services, being the object of contract;
  • Contractual method of payment (e.g. prepayment, second payment, final payment).
