The easiest way to add a shareholder into your Estonian company structure

Are you planning to involve investors in your Estonian company and wondering how to do it? We’d like to give you an overview of ways you can distribute shares, so you’d know exactly what to expect whether your investor is an e-resident or not. What if the new shareholder doesn´t have e-Residency and you don’t want to involve the notary? Do the share distribution yourself, without the notary. The requirements for this are: The company has fully paid 10 000€ of share capital. You have made an amendment to your articles of association, which approves this. *Note that you can only alter this change when all the shareholders have agreed upon it, majority votes won’t be enough. A notation will also be entered on the registry card of the private limited company to specify that the company removes the requirement of notarized approval when selling, redistributing or disposing of shares. It’s the responsibility of the company’s board members to notify the new shareholder of the business registry. What if you don’t want to pay in the 10 000€ of share capital? Increase your company’s share capital. The company issues new shares online. A digitally signed document that outlines the new share allocation must be signed only by the existing shareholders. This means there is no need for the new shareholder to have e-Residency as their signature is not needed. […]
