All Estonian companies whose management board members are located abroad must appoint a contact person in Estonia. A company must also have a legal address in Estonia.

    To be able to register a company on your behalf, we will need an apostilled Power of Attorney from you. If you are from Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia or Ukraine – the Power of Attorney can be notarised, with no apostille necessary. If the company has multiple shareholders and board members, a Power of Attorney is needed from each.

    If necessary, we can provide you with a standard Power of Attorney template.

    As soon as we receive the documents in our office in Estonia, we can proceed with company registration. First, the Power of Attorney received from you will be sent for a legal translation into Estonian.

  • Step 6. Company registration

    We will then visit a notary and carry out all necessary filings at the Company Registry for you. You will receive a confirmation and your company will appear in the Companies Register within 2-3 days.
