During the term of the contract, the accountant has the obligation to provide the accounting service in accordance with the applicable legislation, which also implies the obligation to keep the accounting records. After the expiry of the contract, the contracting authority shall have the right to require the accounting officer to keep the documents or to return them, thereby transferring the obligation to retain the documents to the contracting authority.

The Accountant is responsible for ensuring that the service is provided in accordance with applicable legislation and the instructions of the Accounting Board.

The accounting officer shall undertake to guarantee the accuracy and correctness of the information supplied, except where the inaccuracy or inaccuracy of the information is due to the inaccuracy or inaccuracy of the documents transmitted by the contracting authority to the accounting officer.

Estonian Commercial Code:

§ 176. Decrease in property

If a private limited company has less than half of its share capital or less than the amount of share capital specified in § 136 of this Code or the other minimum amount of share capital provided by law, the shareholders shall decide:

1) reduction or increase of share capital, provided that the amount of net assets would thereby form at least half of the share capital and at least the amount of share capital specified in § 136 of this Code or other minimum amount of share capital provided by law, or taking other measures as a result of which the amount of the net assets of the private limited company would be at least half of the share capital and at least the amount of share capital specified in § 136 of this Code or other minimum amount of share capital provided by law;

2) the dissolution, merger, division or transformation of a private limited company, or

3) submission of a bankruptcy petition.

The information you need to provide in the annual report depends on the size of the company. For example, small businesses are required to provide an activity report, balance sheet, income statement, and specifically required notes.

A small company is a company with total assets of up to 4 million euros, annual sales of up to 8 million euros and an average number of employees of up to 50 people, one of which may be exceeded.

A micro-enterprise is a private limited company with total assets of up to 175 thousand euros, liabilities not exceeding equity and annual sales revenue of up to 50 thousand euros. The micro-enterprise has one shareholder who is also a member of the management board. The micro-enterprise does not have to submit an activity report in the annual report and the number of annexes is also minimal.

We accept the source documents in Estonian and English.

At the same time, the official may ask for proof of affiliation with the address. You can then show the document, the address proof certificate.

We can help with official registration in the Estonian population registry if there is legal background for obtaining.

In this case, the virtual office solution means an address service and contact person.

Yes, you can.

Actually, you need it before establishing a company in Estonia. Real address in Estonia and a contact person who resides in Estonia are mandatory for establishing a company if a board member or members are residing outside of Estonia.

Apostille (7)

This package of documents will allow you, for example, to apply for opening an account with a foreign bank for your Estonian company or carry out transactions on behalf of the Estonian company in other countries.

Category: Apostille

An Apostle is a certificate that certifies the competence of the person who signs the document and makes a national public document of one country available to a foreign country that is a party to the relevant international convention (the list of the convicted states can be consulted on the convention website http://www.hcch.net/index_en.php? act = conventions.authorities & cid = 41).

Only notaries draw up public documents for the Republic of Estonia. A notary cannot certify with an apostille a document that he has certified or authenticated.

Category: Apostille

Of course, we also help with other documents: accounting documents, bills, contracts, etc. In this case, the price will be negotiated separately.

Category: Apostille

No.

An unofficial document is not certified by a Notary. In Estonia, the list of shareholders is maintained by board members and has no official meaning. The information provided in the registry card is of official significance for the shareholders.

But we can translate it with the sworn translator.

Category: Apostille

A sample will be included with your order, which you can fill out with your details and then send it back to us.

Category: Apostille

From countries with which Estonia has a legal aid agreement, that is, there is no need for an apostille in the following countries: Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Ukraine.

Background check (2)

No, this is not a background check related to obtaining an Estonian e-residency.

e-Residency is a transnational digital identity available to anyone in the world interested in administering a location-independent business online. e-Residency enables to use secure and convenient digital services that facilitate credibility and trust online. Please be aware that e-Residency does not confer citizenship, tax residency, residence or right of entry to Estonia or to the European Union. It is not a visa or residence permit. The e-Resident digi-ID card is not a physical identification or a travel document, and does not display a photo. You’ll find laws and regulations concerning current application here: Identity Documents ActState Fees Act. You’ll find the terms and conditions for use of certificates of personal identification documents of the Republic of Estonia here.

    The state fee for the e-Resident’s digital ID card is 100 euros. Depending on the chosen pick-up location, additional fees apply:

  • if you choose an office in Estonia as the pick-up location there is no additional fee
  • if you choose a foreign representation of Estonia as the pick-up location you will have to pay an additional fee of 20 euros upon applying
  • if you choose Seoul, South Korea; Tokyo, Japan or San Francisco, USA as the pick-up location an additional service fee applies which is to be paid directly to the service provider upon collecting your document (more detailed information about the applicable fee of each location is displayed upon selecting a specific pick-up location)

Please be informed that the Police and Border Guard Board performs background checks on all applicants.

Company formation (26)

So that the officials know that your address is real.

When you start a business, you must enter at least an email address in your contact information. This must be confirmed.

After we receive the order and get payment, the contact person is ready to sign in as the contact person for your company in the Estonian Commercial Registry.

Usually, it will be done within 24 hours.

Tag: Company

The Estonian Business Law provides two bases for this. Either pay it during the establishment process or pay it later. So a company can be set up without an immediate share capital down payment.

The shareholder shall pay for the share in full within one year, but at the latest share capital must be paid when dividends will be paid. No share capital paid, no dividends.

Automatically standard, but you can make some differences yourself, but that makes usually no sense.

A) An annual report must be submitted

To the registration department of a country court no later than within 6 months after the end of the financial year. The report can be submitted through the Company Registration Portal. If you do not submit the report in due time, the court maintaining the register may fine both the company and its management board members without advance warning.

The company’s financial year is always the calendar year, starting on the 1st of January and ending on the 31st of December.

B) The company’s business name, registry code and location

Must be stated in the company’s business documents and on its website. The annual report must also state those data and additionally the company’s e-mail address and website address as well as other telecommunications data.

C) Activities

Are presented in the annual report. Enclose up to 10 largest activities by sales revenue as annexes to the report. Activity cannot be freely described but instead must be indicated as the relevant wording in the Estonian Classification of Economic Activities, level 4. Insignificant activities are not required to be stated. The management report provides a more detailed description of the reporting year’s activities and the changes planned for the coming year. Please keep in mind that stating an activity in the Commercial Register does not automatically grant you the right to engage in it if a special law prescribes any additional requirements (for example the Trading Act requires that a place of sale be registered with the local government, the Building Act requires that a building contractor be registered, the Public Transport Act requires a public transport or taxi license, etc.).

D) Changing registry data (company address, management board members, etc.)

A petition for entry of change is filed with the county court maintaining the register. A petition for entry can be filed through Company Registration Portal or a notary. A state fee must be paid when filing a petition for entry (indicating the company’s registry code and the relevant reference code).

Notice of changes to data outside entries must be sent through Company Registration Portal or by post. Data outside entries can be changed without a state fee. A state fee is also not required for submitting a resolution of shareholders or the supervisory board to extend the duration of powers of a management board member entered into the register.

Documents (both on paper and digital) must be submitted as originals (incl. with original signatures) or as notarised copies. A notary may also prepare a digital copy of a document. Documents must be in Estonian or accompanied by a translation made by a sworn translator or certified by a notary. If failing to submit the required data, the company, as well as all its management board members can be fined repeatedly.

E) A person’s address

Is looked up from the Population Register by the county court maintaining the register. But if a company’s management board member, liquidator or the chair of the supervisory board does not have a place of residence registered in the Estonian Population Register, the data of that place of residence must be submitted and any changes in those data must be notified of immediately. Those data are also considered data outside entries so no state fee is required for them.

Every Estonian company must have an Estonian address.

F) The list of shareholders

Is kept by the private limited company’s management board.

If other shareholders have a pre-emptive purchase right, a shareholder selling its share must present the sales contract to the management board so that the management board can inform other shareholders. The notary certifying a sale or pledge of a share will also communicate the transaction to the county court maintaining the register. The management board may assign the list of shareholders to be maintained by the Estonian Central Register of Securities for a fee. In that case transactions with shares are conducted through a securities account opened in a bank. If a company had multiple shareholders and only a sole shareholder remains then the management board must send a notice to that effect to the county court maintaining the register.

Only private persons who have an Estonian personal ID code can register an Estonian company online. If you as a legal entity would like to register an Estonian company, please get in touch with us. We will help you with the registration process.

The company can be registered by one founder. If you have more than one founder, please get in touch with us. We will help you with the registration process.

To register an Estonian company, both the founder and the board member(s) must have an Estonian personal ID code. If the founder and the board member are different persons, both must digitally sign the company registration application. You will be able to download the application after filling out the registration form. Once you have signed the downloaded document, you must upload it to the portal for submission.

The management board of an Estonian company can be located outside of Estonia. In this case it is regulated by the law to provide the address of the board and appoint an authorized contact person.

G) Equity capital level

You must make sure that the company’s net assets (equity capital) do not decrease below one half of its share capital, and never below the lower limit of share capital set forth in the law. Otherwise the management board must summon the shareholders to decide an involvement of new funds, a merger, a reconstruction or dissolution of the company, etc. In the case of long-term insolvency, the management board must immediately present the court with a bankruptcy petition. Failure to react can bring about proprietary and criminal liability for the management board.

The share capital of the company must be at least 2500 euro. The maximum share capital permitted is 25 000 euro. You can register the company without having to deposit the share capital. You can do this later at the bank.

H) The Tax and Customs Board

And other national and local authorities utilise the Commercial Register’s data through a computer network and they are forbidden from requesting you to submit an excerpt of the Commercial Register (§ 541 (1¹) of the Commercial Code). You do not have to register separately as a person paying income tax, social tax and land tax. Still, you have to register as a person paying value added tax (VAT) if your company’s annual turnover exceeds the lower limit set forth in the law. You can register as a person paying value added tax through the website of the Tax and Customs Board.

Tag: Company

The name must be limited to the Estonian alphabet and symbols may not be used. Most importantly, the name must be unique and clearly distinguishable from other company names and trademarks previously registered in Estonia. In the case of trademarks, both national and international trademarks valid in Estonia count. In making the decision, the overlap of the proposed activity with the registered trademark classes may be compared.

Visiting a Public Notary in Estonia or by using a power of attorney.

Registration through a notary or with a power of attorney comes at different prices:

  • Company formation via Public Notary – 349 EUR
  • Company formation by a Power of Attorney – 549 EUR
  • The establishment with a notary includes notary fees and state fees. The incorporation with the POA also includes its translation costs, notary fees, and state fees.

    Additional costs can be added if there is more than one establisher.

Can also be used in business, but there are differences compared to a regular company.

Requires at least 2 board members. Will go through automatic liquidation if less. Money can only be used towards the goal set in its charter. By definition, they can’t make a profit, that means you can’t take out the profit as dividends, a non-profit can only pay a salary to its employees.

But the advantages are the following, no equity.

There is no equity to claim against 🙂 if the members of the board have not shown a significant degree of negligence in the management of the non-profit organization.

Take a closer look.

Liability is a type of liability arising from a tax relationship that extends to a third party’s legal representative, chief executive officer or asset manager (the addressee of the liability decision) to pay the company’s tax debt. It is an obligation on the part of the corporation, ie the said one presupposes the validity of the tax debt of the company (Supreme Administrative Court decision no. 3-3-1-75-09).

Liability proceedings are a sub-category of debt recovery and are not tax assessments. The liability procedure involves an analysis of the circumstances underlying the third party’s liability, which may result in the issuance of a liability decision to the obligated new subject or the termination of the liability procedure due to lack of grounds.

It is clear from §§ 96 (1), 40 (1) and 8 (1) of the Taxation Act that the liability of a member of the management board in the recovery of his tax debt is as follows:

  • the member of the Management Board has willfully or through gross negligence violated his or her duties
  • breach of the obligation to ensure the timely and full fulfillment of the financial and non-financial obligations under the Taxation Act and tax laws
  • the default has resulted in a tax debt

No, there is no need for that.

Except establishing a company with an Estonian e-residency card.

Companies can be established in Estonia remotely with ID cards (allowed are              Estonian, Latvian and Finnish ID-card or Estonian and Lithuanian Mobile-ID or Estonian e-resident card).

Other possibilities are:

No. We collect your data and provide it to the banks. They have final decision rights. But we can hope expected readiness in some selected banks.

For opening bank account in Estonian banks, it can’t be done remotely.

In Estonia, your company name must be written in the Latin alphabet and preferably without any special characters or symbols. You also need to choose a name that’s unique in Estonia’s company registry and ensure that the name is not protected by trademark.

As an Estonian company is an EU company, you’ll also want to check if there are other trademarks that are similar across the continent. The EU is the world’s largest single market and home to more than 500 million consumers, as well as plenty of entrepreneurs, so it’s unlikely that your company name is completely unique.

If you have ordered to our company formation package, please contact us and we will check if the name is appropriate. Free of charge.

Establishing a company in the e-register the contact person needs to be added by the establisher/s.

After adding it, the contact person confirms it in the same environment. If the company is founded by a notary, the contact person gives a digitally signed confirmation as a separate document or gives it directly at the place to the notary.

If from us have been ordered a company formation service, we will add all data where it will be needed.

Tag: Company

24 hours. Once all the necessary information (name of the company, field of activity, founder’s personal details, etc.) is available for us.

After ordering and paying, your application will go to the Estonian Commercial Registry. There, within 24 hours (working days), the assistant judge will review the information in your application and make a decision in the founding regulation or in the deficiency order. You will also receive a notice by email. Therefore, you should always use a valid email address when entering your information.

The most common reason for obtaining a deficiency resolution is to choose the name of a registered company or a private company that is too similar to a trademark. In that case, an application for amendment of the statement of entry must be filed.

A time limit will be set for the rectification of the deficiencies.

By logging in to the e-Business Register, the first page will show the companies that are related to you. There you can also give your digital signature for confirmation of the will for company establishment.

Having an address in Estonia and a contact person is mandatory for establishing a company in Estonia. So with ordering a company formation, you should order also an address and contact person. Or even better, go on with Package THREE. Where probably everything is included to start with business activity in Estonia from scratch.

Before you start, it is also good to think about what your business will be.

The EMTAK code (Classification of Economic Activities in Estonia) is the basis for the use of the economic indicators of your private company in national and European Union statistics.

We recommend that you select the business that you are likely to have the most sales in the first year of operation of the private limited company. It is not prohibited to operate in more than one activity unless it is subject to authorization or notification. The EMTAK code you select when you start a private company cannot be changed later. However, once the annual report has been submitted, the company will become the public EMTAK code with the highest sales turnover.

No. But they need an Estonian address.

Nevertheless, all sole proprietors (FIE) must file an application to be entered into the commercial register before they start operating. Individuals from creative professions working on a freelance basis are subject to the same requirement.

There is no need to register separately with the Estonian Tax and Customs Board, as the information about registration will be forwarded automatically.

If an e-resident registers as a sole proprietor in Estonia, it is accompanied by a commitment to pay advance payments of social tax 4 times a year. The size of advance payment actually does not depend on the size of income, it is set each year with the state budget.

Tag: Company

Unless the residence of at least one-half of the board members of the company is in Estonia, in another Member State of the European Economic Area or in the Swiss Confederation, the foreign company must have a local contact person.

A contact person will be registered in the Estonian Commercial Registry. A contact person must confirm his will to be a contact person.

Either directly in the e-business register or with a digitally signed consent sent to a Public Notary.

No. However, you must make a contribution to the share capital at the latest before the dividend is distributed.

In this case, the virtual office solution means an address service and contact person.

Yes, you can.

Actually, you need it before establishing a company in Estonia. Real address in Estonia and a contact person who resides in Estonia are mandatory for establishing a company if a board member or members are residing outside of Estonia.

No and yes.

Without anyone coming to Estonia, you cannot buy a share or stake.
Must come by yourself or someone whos is authorized by you.

The reason for this is that all relevant transactions must be notarized by Public Notary in Estonia.

NB!

Although there is one way. Using a stock account. For further details please contact us.

Company liquitation (9)

Our price is for a company with no debts and no or little business activity.

It needs to be raised 🙂

Estonian Commercial Code:

§ 176. Decrease in property

If a private limited company has less than half of its share capital or less than the amount of share capital specified in § 136 of this Code or the other minimum amount of share capital provided by law, the shareholders shall decide:

1) reduction or increase of share capital, provided that the amount of net assets would thereby form at least half of the share capital and at least the amount of share capital specified in § 136 of this Code or other minimum amount of share capital provided by law, or taking other measures as a result of which the amount of the net assets of the private limited company would be at least half of the share capital and at least the amount of share capital specified in § 136 of this Code or other minimum amount of share capital provided by law;

2) the dissolution, merger, division or transformation of a private limited company, or

3) submission of a bankruptcy petition.

If you cannot come to visit an Estonian notary, you cannot visit an e-notary, then the only way to conduct the whole process by power of attorney.

The sample power of attorney will be sent to you automatically with the order confirmation. You can add the necessary information there, legalize it and send it back to us.

Yes, there is no difference between foreign and local owners liquidating companies in Estonia.

The story is that we are offering a faster way to get rid of your business, but that speed will start to run from the moment you reach the first person to be considered a notary. From there, our 24-hour time will run.

Usually, the company liquidation procedure in Estonia can take between 6 and 8 months to complete.

But with us, when we go to Public Notary, it’s 24 hours.

Yes, it’s possible.

A private limited company or public limited company may, as a company being acquired, merge with the assets of a natural person (acquiring natural person) who is the sole shareholder of the company.

The merger is permitted also in case the shares are in the joint ownership of the spouses. The merger of a private limited company or public limited company with the assets of the company’s shareholder who is a natural person is permitted also in case in addition to this shareholder the shares of a private limited company or public limited company being acquired are held exclusively by the company itself.

The assets of a company being acquired, including its obligations, shall transfer to the acquiring company upon merger.

The merger will take place without liquidation proceedings. So it’s faster than conventional liquidation.

The merger process between a natural person and her/his company takes far less than the conventional liquidation – about 2-4 months.

No, they are two different procedures. A company must first declare bankrupt and then be liquidated.

Estonian SIM card (6)

We do this in Estonia before posting it to you.

Physical real SIM card. Many service providers (Google, Linkedin, etc.) do not accept virtual numbers in several control systems.

Insert the SIM card into your phone, turn it on, and enter PIN code 0000. Usage time is calculated from the time the prepaid card is activated by making a call.

The starter kit has a starting balance of 1 EUR. The prepaid card is active for 180 days from the day of activation or topping it up with at least 3 EUR. After 180 you will be able to answer calls, read messages, call emergency number 112, and top up the card for 30 days.

Formation of a nonprofit association (7)

Yes, if it’s related to the purpose of a nonprofit association.

The nonprofit association can be established in Estonia remotely with ID cards (allowed are Estonian, Latvian and Finnish ID-card or Estonian and Lithuanian Mobile-ID or Estonian e-resident card)

Registration through a notary or with a power of attorney comes at different prices.

  • Nonprofit association formation via Public Notary – 190 EUR
  • Nonprofit association formation by a Power of Attorney – 390 EUR

Additional costs can be added if there is more than two establisher.

Can also be used in business, but there are differences compared to a regular company.

Requires at least 2 board members. Will go through automatic liquidation if less. Money can only be used towards the goal set in its charter. By definition, they can’t make a profit, that means you can’t take out the profit as dividends, a non-profit can only pay a salary to its employees.

But the advantages are the following, no equity.

There is no equity to claim against 🙂 if the members of the board have not shown a significant degree of negligence in the management of the non-profit organization.

Take a closer look.

Yes. There must be two founders for a non-profit organization.

Since we offer services, not commodities, it is generally not possible. Exceptionally, for example, if a service has not yet been provided, cancellation of the order is possible.

Estonian law allows for the physical person the cancellation of the order within 14 days after the order is submitted if there is a reasonable basis and in the case of sales of goods. This requirement does not apply to the service already provided.

Note that your application must be made before the service duration has ended and you should not have unpaid bills. It is not possible to terminate the Contract prematurely.

Disputes are resolved by way of negotiations. Upon not reaching an agreement the dispute is resolved in the jurisdiction of the service provider.

The standard rate of VAT is 20%, the reduced rate is 9% and 0% in some cases.

The taxable period is one calendar month, and VAT returns must be submitted to the tax authority by the 20th day of the month following the taxable period.

Usually, Tax and Customs Board will register with the VAT for those companies that engage in economic activities or prove their commencement (§ 20 (4) of the Value Added Tax Act).

As a result, the registration of non-operating ready-made companies is usually not possible for the sale of companies by sellers of the companies.

It is possible to buy formerly operating companies, including VAT registered companies. In this case, the registration of the company as a VAT taxpayer will be retained.

Applicants must have access to “Submit a VAT registration application”.

In order to grant access, the authorized person must enter the e-MTA as a representative and select “Settings”> “Access Rights”> “Representative Access Rights”.

On the Access Rights Administration page, you must enter the user ID of the user to be authorized and select “Access to VAT registration” under the “Individual rights” section.

Tax Returns

 

Residents pay tax on their worldwide income. Taxable income includes, in particular, income from employment (salaries, wages, bonuses and other remuneration); business income; interest, royalties, rental income; capital gains; pensions and scholarships (except scholarships financed from the state budget or paid on the basis of law). Taxable income does not include dividends paid by Estonian or foreign companies when the underlying profits have already been taxed.

The personal income tax is withheld from the employees’ gross salary every month and paid by the employer.

Non-residents pay personal income tax only on their income received from Estonian sources. Taxable income in Estonia includes:

  • income from work under a labour contract or contractor’s agreement in Estonia
  • income from business carried out in Estonia
  • interest income received from Estonia (only if it is substantially higher than that of similar debt claims)
  • royalties
  • income from the lease of assets located in Estonia
  • gains from disposal of assets located in Estonia
  • directors’ fees paid by Estonian enterprises; » income of a sportsman or an artist from his or her activities in Estonia
  • pensions and scholarships

As a non-resident, you can sign in to the Estonian Tax and Customs Board’s self-service environment and use the e-services if you have:

  • the eID of one of the following EU Member States:
    • Germany (National Identity Card, Electronic Residence Permit)
    • Italy (Carta di identità elettronica)
    • Spain (DNIe)
    • Belgium (Belgian Citizen eCard, Foreigner eCard)
    • Luxembourg (Luxembourg eID card)
    • Croatia (Personal Identity Card (eOI)).

Applying for Estonia’s e-Residency

If you are unable to use the above-mentioned authentication methods, we recommend you apply for Estonia’s e-Residency. E-Residency offers foreigners secure access to Estonia’s e-services. Holders of the e-resident’s Digi-ID card can digitally sign documents and use the Digi-ID to sign in to all portals and information systems that recognize the Estonian ID-card.

You can apply for an Estonian e-resident’s Digi-ID electronically at https://e-resident.gov.ee/. Consult the same web page for additional information on e-Residency and instructions on how to submit an application.

Liability is a type of liability arising from a tax relationship that extends to a third party’s legal representative, chief executive officer or asset manager (the addressee of the liability decision) to pay the company’s tax debt. It is an obligation on the part of the corporation, ie the said one presupposes the validity of the tax debt of the company (Supreme Administrative Court decision no. 3-3-1-75-09).

Liability proceedings are a sub-category of debt recovery and are not tax assessments. The liability procedure involves an analysis of the circumstances underlying the third party’s liability, which may result in the issuance of a liability decision to the obligated new subject or the termination of the liability procedure due to lack of grounds.

It is clear from §§ 96 (1), 40 (1) and 8 (1) of the Taxation Act that the liability of a member of the management board in the recovery of his tax debt is as follows:

  • the member of the Management Board has willfully or through gross negligence violated his or her duties
  • breach of the obligation to ensure the timely and full fulfillment of the financial and non-financial obligations under the Taxation Act and tax laws
  • the default has resulted in a tax debt

The rate of social tax is 33% (20% for social security and 13% for health insurance). Besides the social tax, unemployment insurance tax at a rate of 0.8% must be paid on the gross salary (an additional 1.6% is withheld from the employees’ salary).

Employers registered in Estonia (including the permanent establishments of foreign entities) must pay social tax on all payments made to employees, except on those specifically exempted by law.

E-residency in Estonia does not automatically mean tax residence. It only provides the opportunity to use the e-services that the Estonian state offers. Among them is the establishment of the company. If your turnover is less than EUR 40,000 per the calendar year, you don’t need to add VAT to your invoices. If the turnover is generated outside Estonia, you do not have to add VAT to your invoices if you exceed this amount. If the employees do not work in Estonia, the labour tax according to Estonian law does not have to be taken into account.

 

On 1 July 2009, the Economic Operators Registration and Identification System (EORI) was introduced in all EU Member States for identification of economic operators as regards their customs related activities. Economic operators engaged in foreign trade who register themselves in the EORI system are given unique identification numbers (EORI numbers), which will be forwarded to the EORI central database.

The use of an EORI number enabling to identify economic operators within the entire EU customs territory became mandatory for all economic operators engaged in import or export of goods, transit transportations or when performing other customs related activities.

Distributed profits include:

  • corporate profits distributed in the tax period
  • gifts, donations and representation expenses
  • expenses and payments not related to business
  • transfer of the assets of the permanent establishment to its head office or to other companies

Dividends paid to non-residents are no longer subject to withholding tax, irrespective of participation in the share capital of the distributing Estonian company. However, various withholding taxes may still apply to other payments to non-residents if they do not have a permanent establishment in Estonia or unless the tax treaties otherwise provide.

As the tax period for corporate entities is a month, income tax must be returned and paid monthly by the 10th day of the following month.

‘Engaged in business’ means actual economic activity commenced, but also a business plan worked out and making investments for the commencement of business.

The Tax and Customs Board shall have the right to request that the person submit additional proof or collect such proof on its own initiative. The proof is any information confirming that the applicant has either commenced business at the place of business stated in the application or has planned to start a business. Such proof can be, for example, preliminary contracts, (commercial lease, procurement, delivery, employment, etc.) contracts, sites for work to be performed, etc.
