The e-Residency program is open to any citizen of the world, regardless of your nationality or country of residence.

The main requirement to open your REMOTE-company in Estonia with us is that your business is completely digital. If you are the only partner, you must ensure that your country of citizenship or residence cannot claim that your company has its permanent establishment there. If you are a freelancer, a digital nomad, a startup, an international company or you travel regularly without a permanent establishment, the e-Residency program has been designed for you.

In addition, we only work with companies formed by individuals who are e-Residents. We don’t accept corporate shareholders. That is, we do not allow other companies as shareholders, or holding structures.

There are two options: dividends and salaries. Dividends are issued usually at the beginning of the financial year, and paid to shareholders. Salaries are usually paid every month, and can be paid to members of the board or any other employee, including also the shareholders.

In this article, you can see how to pay salaries to members of the board or other employees.

Estonia is an European country, and as such, you may become VAT liable and obtain a VAT number to deal with other European businesses. When you open your company in Estonia with us, we can apply for your VAT number and register you in the VIES registry. Not all business models are eligible for a VAT number. For example, dropshipping/FBA companies won’t get a VAT number.

Regarding taxes, the good news is: you will not pay any taxes for the money your company earns, spends in deductible expenses, or re-invests in the business. This means that all the money that goes into the bank account of your company and stays there or is spent in business expenses is virtually tax-free.

You only pay taxes for the profit that is distributed out of the company via dividends or salaries.

In this article we explain VAT and taxes for Estonian companies in detail.

The deductible expenses are those that are required for the activity of the company. They are paid by the company and deducted as a business expense. Thanks to the innovative Estonian tax system, these expenses are exempt from taxes. They are considered money that gets reinvested in the company.

What are those deductible expenses? Is there a rule to know if an expense is deductible or not? We explain everything in detail in this article.
