Decide when you will visit Estonia

To make sure everything runs smoothly we need to book appointments at the notary's office and at the bank. Therefore, it is important to let us know at least 1-2 days in advance of your visit to Tallinn.

In case you prefer to do everything remotely, then let us know - usually it is possible. However, it takes more time and involves some additional costs.

Transfer of the company

1. We meet in our office to clarify all of the remaining details
2. We sign the company's share transfer agreement and petition, to change board members at the notary's office (located in the same building as us). This usually takes less than 30 minutes
3. We discuss the best options about opening a bank account for your company and proceed with KYC procedures if decided. Opening a bank account for an Estonian company outside of Estonia has become a standard procedure for us

It is enough to visit Estonia for 1 day to get everything done.

Changes in the Commercial Register

The names of the new shareholder(s) and board member(s) appear on the company's registry card in 1 - 7 days after submission. The Commercial Register is fully digital and does not issue any physical documents. However, it is possible to have physical notary certified copies joined with an apostille.

VAT ID registration and accounting

If you need a VAT ID, we can take care of the registration on behalf of your company and establish rights for an accountant to take care of your tax returns. Tax returns (VAT, income/social and VIES) must be submitted once per month in case a VAT ID is registered.

Most efficient way to cope with the declarations is to use our online accounting system which we will help you to set up. This enables you to issue sales invoices and have an overview over your company’s accounting. The online solution saves you time and money even when monthly tax returns are not required.
