How do I set up a company in Estonia or how do I move my company?

It’s so simple it seems unreal. To set up a business, you apply for e-residency. With the e-Residency card you can log in to the register and set up a company. Choose a name, choose the field of your business activity and register the company. Open a bank account. Depending on the company’s activity, special licenses may be required. You will be informed about this. Make your shareholder contribution directly online. You will usually receive the register entry within 1-2 days. Approx. 1-2 days later you will receive the VAT number after the application, usually after you have been entered in the register. Employees – not shareholders – are to be registered in the Employee Registry – online, of course.

How do I get the e-Residency?

You can do that via this link (e-resident.gov.ee/become-an-e-resident). You will then receive a message from the Police and Border Guard Control when you can collect your blue e-Residency card from the Estonian Embassy. Before that you pay a fee of about 120 euros. You can choose where. This can be in Berlin, for example, in Germany. If you live close to other countries, it’s worth checking. Alexander picked up his e-residency card in Brussels.

Do you have questions about the e-residency? Contact us.
