Legal Address in Estonia 🏢
Hey there! If you’re running a company in Estonia or planning to set one up, here’s something important you need to know: every company registered at the Estonian Commercial Register (RIK) must have a legal address. 🇪🇪
So, what’s a legal address? 🤔 It’s the official address of your company like virtual office and it’s like your company’s home on paper. This address is public information, and various government bodies like RIK and EMTA use it to send you official mail. 📬✉️
Think of it as your company’s mailbox where all the important letters and notices go. 📮✨
Having a legal address is not just a formality; it’s a legal requirement to keep everything transparent and ensure that your business can receive important documents hassle-free. 📝👍
So, when you’re in Estonia’s business world, remember to keep your legal address up-to-date and accessible. It’s a small but crucial detail in running a smooth and successful business. If you have any questions or need assistance with your legal address, we’re here to help! 🤝😊
Your Trusted ‘Contact Person’ in Estonia 🤝
Hey there, fellow entrepreneur! If your Management Board operates outside of Estonia, you’ll need to appoint a ‘contact person.’ 🌍 But no worries, we’ve got you covered!
As a company with a Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) license, we’re fully equipped to provide you with this essential ‘contact person’ service. 🏢💼
What Does a Contact Person Do? 📦
Great question! Your contact person plays a crucial role in ensuring your business runs smoothly in Estonia. Here’s what they’re responsible for:
📬 Receiving and Forwarding: Your contact person receives and forwards any procedural documents or letters of intent addressed to your business. Even though Estonia is all about digital, some legal documents still come on paper. 📜📮
🚚 Document Delivery: When a procedural document or declaration of intent arrives at your contact person’s address, it’s considered officially delivered to your business. No fuss, no hassle! 📤✅
👥 No Special Titles Needed: Your contact person doesn’t need to be a shareholder, board member, or employee of your company. You don’t have to grant them any special rights to act on your company’s behalf. It’s all smooth sailing! 🚢
Separating Legal Address from Contact Person 🏠
Until February 2023, your company’s legal address was linked to your contact person’s address. But guess what? A change in the Commercial Code now allows you to separate the two if you prefer. 🗓️
However, most e-residents find it convenient to have a single service provider handling both the legal address and the contact person duties. 🙌
So, when you choose us as your ‘contact person’ in Estonia, you’re not just getting a service; you’re getting peace of mind and hassle-free business operations. We’re here to make your journey smoother and more enjoyable. If you have any questions or need assistance, feel free to reach out! 🌐😊
