Even though we take care of your accountancy and bookkeeping so you can focus on your business, one of the great benefits of managing your company online is that you can do everything online. As a perfect example, in this article, we describe how to accept the registration of your company in Estoniaonce we have prepared all the paperwork for you.
Preparing the paperwork …
Despite being all online, the registration of a company is still a complex process, with lots of small details to consider, such as the share capital, partners, type of company, articles of association, and so on.
However, do not panic! Our task is to take care of the whole process for you. All you need to do is signing the application once we have prepared all the paperwork.
If you haven’t yet, you will need to install the card reader software and activate the plugins of your browser to be able to sign the petition. In this article we explain how to do it.
Steps to sign and confirm the registration of your company in Estonia
If you have configured your card reader already, these are the steps you must take to sign the registration of your company in Estonia.
Confirm your business email
First of all, you need to confirm your company email, the one you specified in the document we asked you to fill in.
You will receive an email from ” e-Äriregistri teavitus” (the business register) asking you to confirm your email, with a link that says “Please verify the address by clicking on the following link or copy and paste it to your web browser”.
This works just like any other subscription in the planet (such as Netflix). You just have to click on the link, and that’s it!If the email does not seem to arrive, have a look at your spam folder. Still missing? Contact us and we try to find it.
Enter the company registration portal
Once you have confirmed your email, you have to go to the company registration portaland login with the card: https://ettevotjaportaal.rik.ee/index.py?chlang=eng
Locate the company registration application
Once you are logged in, you will see a section called “Entry petitions” listing your company name, with the type of entry “Foundation entry“, as the figure below shows. You just have to click on the name of your company.
You will reach a page where you will see a text specifying that your signature is missing (“Missing” next to your name).
Now you should click on “See the petition” and verify that all the data is correct, that all the members have been added and that they appear correctly as members of the board and/or shareholders in the proportions that you decided. If you notice any errors, let us know so we can modify the request before proceeding.
If everything is OK, click on the blue button that says “Sign”.
The system will ask for your PIN2(the one used to sign documents) to be able to sign the registration of your company.
Hopefully some moments later, the “Missing” will change to “signed” with a small green tick. Congratulations! That’s all. Now we can proceed to pay all the state fees, taxes and notary, and your company should be registered in a matter of hours.
As soon as the process is complete, we will send you a message with the data of your newly created company and the following steps.
