Company Registration in Estonia

If you’re thinking of starting a business in Estonia, registering your company is an essential first step. However, there are several aspects of the registration process that you need to be aware of. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at some of the key considerations for company formation in Estonia.

Financial Year

The financial year for Estonian companies typically runs from 1 January to 31 December. However, some companies may have a different financial year due to their seasonal activities. It’s crucial to know your company’s financial year and the deadlines for submitting annual reports and other important documents to avoid noncompliance.

Share Capital

Since 2023, there are no minimum capital requirements for companies in Estonia. When establishing a company, if you make an immediate capital contribution, you need to contribute the exact amount specified in the application for registration. If you plan to make a non-monetary contribution, you must contact a notary to complete the registration process. Before submitting your application, ensure that the founders of the company pay in full their shares in proportion to their share, and board members verify that these payments have been made. Mistakes in providing correct data to the Estonian Commercial Register can carry serious consequences.

Reserve Capital

The reserve capital is no longer mandatory for private companies. Unless you have a good reason to have a reserve capital, it is recommended not to have one. In the case of a new company, verify that the articles of association do not have capital reserves. If you have an existing company, ensure that your articles of association do not change, and that you do not cancel reserve capital. Otherwise, available reserve capital may be subject to write-off from the balance sheet.

Incorporation Costs

When it comes to the costs of incorporation, you have two options: bear them according to the nominal value of the share or have the limited liability company bear them. It is recommended that the limited liability company bears the costs so that the shareholder can return the state duty paid to them free of charge from the company’s bank account. If the company is established in the register of electronic enterprises, the state duty in 2022 is EUR 265.

Tax Register and Statutory Capital

Contributions to the statutory capital are registered in the tax register. Ensure the contribution you make to the statutory capital of the company created in the e-register through the business portal goes to the current account of the Ministry of Finance. Request to have the deposit back within one year of its entry in the register; otherwise, it remains in the state’s income.

Contribution of Share Capital for Existing Companies

If a limited liability company was initially established without a direct share capital contribution, you need to submit an application through the e-register portal to remove the entries relating to registration.

Final Thoughts

These are some of the main things you need to keep in mind when registering a company in Estonia. Ensuring you understand these requirements and comply with them can save you a lot of time, money and potential legal issues.
