    Base your business in the world's largest single market

    Estonia is Northern Europe’s hub for businesses with global ambitions

    E-resident companies are registered in Estonia, a member state of the EU. So even though you don’t live in Estonia or maybe not even in the EU, your business is in the world’s largest trading bloc and single market. Having an EU company gives legitimacy in the eyes of clients and investors. Plus, one stop shop VAT schemes.

    Supercharge growth in the most competitive tax system

    Estonian companies may benefit from Estonia’s straightforward and unique tax system.

    • 0% on reinvested profits
    • 14-20% on distributed profits
    • Simplified VAT reports due to uniform EU tax procedures
    • Estonia and Delaware are the only juristications that do not tax the transfer of shares

    We advise e-Residency as opposed to Delaware and UK since as soon as the startups concerned run into notarial or legal costs, Estonia becomes a far better option and saves a great deal of money over time.
