    3 key things to keep in mind when choosing a service provider

    Think ahead

    What kinds of services will you need in 6-12 months’ time? How active will your company be now and in the future?

    Understand your needs

    Do you need help with company administration, or can you do some yourself? How much time and resources can you contribute to company administration?

    Get multiple quotes

    Which service provider is the best fit for your business? Who offers the best pricing?

    Essential services to get your company started

    Company formation and contact person

    For companies with a foreign management board address, it’s required to use a licensed company or notary to provide a local contact person in Estonia.

    The contact person acts as a messenger for your company for local authorities if they cannot reach you in person and doesn’t need to be granted rights to act on behalf of your company.

    Many e-residents also use a service provider to help with company formation.

    Business banking

    Payment institutions / Fintech companies offer the most flexible and accessible business banking and payment services, and accept applications online.

    Banks in Estonia will require you to make at least one physical visit to Estonia to set up your account, and to show your company has a strong connection to Estonia.


    Bookkeeping for your company in Estonia must comply with local accounting and legal standards.

    The minimum requirement is to file your company’s Annual Report each year, with additional obligations depending on the nature and activities of your business.

    Using an accountant who knows the accounting principles and system in Estonia will save you time and energy in running your business.

    Tax consulting

    Your Estonian company is automatically considered a tax resident of Estonia.

    BUT you should consider if your company also has tax obligations in the country where you live or otherwise conduct business, and whether international tax rules apply.

    We strongly recommended getting advice from international tax consultants or the local tax office in your country of residence.
