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 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 with us). Takes usually less than 30 minutes
3. We take care of opening or transferring the account with the payment service provider to you. So you can start to pay and receive money either immediately or in a few days
4. We arrange a meeting at the bank to identify you and take care of KYC (Know Your Client) procedures to open or activate the bank account.

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

Changes in the Commercial Register

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

VAT ID registration and accounting

If you need the 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, if 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.
