Here are answers to some frequently asked questions. Please contact us for more information.

Over the years, Estonian banks have steadily tightened their account opening policies in line with EU and US anti-terrorism and anti-money laundering laws. Banks use the Know your customer (KYC) process, which allows the bank to decide whether or not to open an account. It is often advisable to seek a preliminary ruling from a bank regarding the opening of an account. When you provide the bank with sufficient and convincing starting information (business plan, CV / LinkedIn, Estonian partners, a letter of recommendation from your home bank), account opening is usually successful. Banks require that the company has a business in Estonia or that the business owner resides in Estonia.

The limited liability company (AS) must be audited every year.

The previous year's financial statements must be submitted to the Estonian Trade Register on 30 June. (if the financial year is a calendar year). However, the company's first financial year may be a maximum of 18 months.

First of all, it should be taken into account that when setting up an Estonian company or buying a ready-made company, the company does not have a VAT number, ie the company is not subject to VAT. This means that the company invoices without VAT and VAT on purchase invoices cannot be deducted. The limit of VAT liability is 40,000 € / year.

In order to obtain a VAT number, the tax office must complete the application in person. The taxpayer will make a decision or ask additional questions within the next 5 days. When the owner of the company has a foreign background, the taxpayer asks additional questions with a 90% probability. When applying for a VAT number, it would be good for the company to show the right business in Estonia. The Estonian tax authorities have recently been strict in issuing VAT numbers.

In certain cases, an Estonian company must apply abroad for VAT.

A subsidiary operating abroad pays 20% tax on its profit. Many countries and Estonia do not charge tax on dividends paid by a subsidiary to its parent company. A subsidiary operating in Estonia pays corporate income tax of 20% to Estonia when it distributes a dividend to a parent company. The parent company does not pay tax on dividends in it's home country. When an Estonian company buys a stake in a Finnish company, the Estonian company must pay 1.6% transfer tax on the transaction.
