When is the Right Time for a Company Liquidation in Estonia?

It is crucial to recognise when your Estonian company has become a burden instead of being a place to express your passion for business. Liquidating a Company at the right time and using a professional and trustworthy service provider for handling the process can save your health, time, and funds.

Financially speaking, you should consider company liquidation in the following situations:

Company Liquidation to avoid burnout

From a mental health point of view, you should consider company liquidation if you feel burned out. Owning a business can be challenging, as it not only frees you from micromanagement but also requires you to be present 24/7, which can become overwhelming. No business or work is worth constant physical/mental stress and a decrease in the quality of life.

If it is difficult to keep up with the legal requirements in Estonia, we are here to provide you with full assistance. Thus, in that case, liquidation is not the only solution. Read more about the dissolution of a private limited company.

Company Liquidation prevents further damages

For other reasons, company liquidation might be the right option to prevent potential further damage. The Wisor Group team can help you through the process and ensure that the company is liquidated as quickly and simply as possible, so you can move on with your life calmly.

Company Liquidation for non-compliant companies

Regarding obligations, it is time to dissolve your company when it becomes too difficult to meet the requirements for legal entities in Estonia. This means being constantly non-compliant with Estonian laws, which puts you at risk of fines and being mentioned in public notifications. Legal requirements include having a registered address and submitting annual reports on time, which are easy to comply with if you have a professional service provider in Estonia.

Non-compliant companies are quickly removed

Your Estonian company is at risk of deletion by the Estonian commercial register for any non-compliance (including not having a legal address, not submitting annual reports, etc). Due to the high number of non-compliant (so-called “sleeping”) companies in Estonia, a goal was set by the Estonian authorities to clean the business register of companies not fulfilling legal requirements.

Firstly, you are notified by the court with a ruling stating your non-compliances and the deadline for rectifying them. If you are unable to meet the deadline and do not apply for an extension, the registry promptly deletes your company, usually within a few days after the deadline.

This process underscores the importance of taking any business register notifications and court rulings with full seriousness.

Taxes in Estonia: A Competitive Tax Environment

Estonia is highly competitive and offers a unique and attractive tax system that is particularly beneficial for businesses and investors. Let's see what are the types of taxes in Estonia and where does Estonia stand in comparison to other top tax environments in Europe.

Unique Advantages of Estonia's Tax System

  1. Reinvestment Incentive: The zero tax on reinvested profits encourages businesses to invest more in development, innovation, and expansion without the immediate tax burden.
  2. Simplified Tax Administration: Estonia is renowned for its digital governance and e-services, making tax administration straightforward and efficient. The country's e-Residency program further simplifies business operations for non-residents.

Taxes in Estonia: Comparison with Top 5 EU Countries with Lowest Taxes

While Estonia's headline tax rates may not be the lowest in the EU, its unique approach to corporate taxation and the business-friendly environment make it an attractive option, especially for businesses looking to grow and reinvest profits. Here’s a brief comparison:

Corporate Income Tax: Revenue vs. Distributed Profit in Top 5 EU Countries

In the context of corporate income tax, most countries tax profits rather than revenue. Revenue refers to the total income generated by a company from its operations, while profit is the revenue remaining after all expenses, including operating costs, salaries, and other deductions, are subtracted. Let's look at how the top five EU countries with the lowest taxes apply corporate income tax:

1. Bulgaria

2. Hungary

3. Ireland

4. Cyprus

5. Lithuania

Taxes in Estonia: A Different Approach

As a point of comparison, Estonia's system is unique within the EU:

Summary of Taxes in Estonia

To summarize, the corporate income tax in the top EU countries with the lowest rates is based on net profits rather than revenue. This means businesses are taxed on the profit remaining after all allowable expenses are deducted from their total revenue.

Estonia has a distinct system where only distributed profits are taxed, which can be particularly advantageous for businesses focused on reinvesting profits to fuel growth. This system encourages reinvestment and expansion without the immediate tax burden on profits that are not distributed.

Understanding Accounting Services in Estonia: Annual Report Submission

Estonia has garnered a reputation for being a business-friendly environment, especially for startups and tech companies. As it is soon the time to submit the annual reports for 2023, we would like to turn your attention to the key aspects of running a business in Estonia which involves understanding the accounting requirements and ensuring compliance with local regulations. Let's take a look at accounting requirements, annual report submission and deadlines and how accounting services in Estonia are beneficial for your business. 

Monthly Accounting Requirements

In Estonia, monthly accounting is not mandatory for all businesses. Specifically, if your company does not have any employees, does not hold a VAT number, and its annual revenue does not exceed 40,000 EUR, you are exempt from monthly accounting obligations. In such cases, you are only required to submit an annual report once a year. This flexibility can significantly reduce the administrative burden for small businesses and startups, allowing them to focus more on growth and development.

2023 Annual Report Submission Deadline

Regardless of the size or revenue of your business, if you are operating in Estonia, you must submit an annual report. The deadline for the submission of the annual report for the fiscal year 2023 is June 30, 2024. It is crucial to adhere to this deadline to avoid any penalties or legal issues.

Consequences of Failing to Submit the Annual Report

Failure to submit the annual report by the specified deadline can lead to significant consequences. Initially, authorities may impose fines on your company for non-compliance. If the report remains unsubmitted, the company faces the risk of involuntary deletion from the commercial register. This means that your business will be officially dissolved, and you will lose the ability to operate legally in Estonia. Therefore, timely submission of the annual report is not just a regulatory requirement but also essential for the continuity of your business.

Restoring an Involuntarily Deleted Company in Estonia: A Comprehensive Guide of Restoring a Company

Are you a business owner in Estonia who's faced the unfortunate circumstance of having your company involuntarily deleted from the registry? If so and you are looking for ways to restore the company, then Wisor Group and our experienced lawyers are able to assist you with the restoration process. Estonia provides options for restoring your company, depending on the reason for its deletion. In this blog post, we'll walk you through the process of restoring your company, whether it's through the court system or the Commercial Register.

Different ways of Restoring a Company:

Restoring a Company via Court

If your company was involuntarily deleted due to reasons such as the company has been liquidated but assets have remained in the name of the company or claims arise against the company,  which require the company to be active in the registry, you can opt for restoration through the court system. Here's how it works:

  1. Application to the Court: The first step involves filing an application to the court for the restoration of your company. In this application, you'll need to provide a detailed reason and proof why the company needs to be restored.
  2. Providing Proof: Along with your application, you'll need to provide evidence supporting your claim for restoration. This could include documentation showing efforts to rectify compliance issues or resolve outstanding claims against the company.
  3. Liquidator's Confirmation: If the company was in liquidation status prior to its deletion, you'll need confirmation from the liquidator supporting the restoration.
  4. Proof of Payment: Finally, you'll need to provide proof of payment of the state fee associated with the restoration process.

The court will then review your application within a reasonable time frame and, if satisfied with the evidence provided, will restore the company into liquidation status, so you can complete the company deletion properly.

Restoring a Company via Commercial Register

For simpler cases, such as those involving unsubmitted annual reports or missing company data, restoration can be pursued through the Commercial Register. Here's how:

  1. Submission of Petition: Within three years after the deletion of the company, you can submit a petition for reinstatement to the register. This petition should outline the reasons for reinstatement and any supporting documentation.
  2. Competent Body Resolution: Along with the petition, you'll need to include a document indicating the resolution of a competent body (such as the company's board of directors) concerning the restoration to the register.

The registry will then review the application within five working days and, if everything is in order, will reinstate the company in the registry.

Restoring a Company in Estonia

Restoring an involuntarily deleted company in Estonia may seem daunting, but with the right understanding of the process and proper documentation, it can be accomplished smoothly. Whether through the court system or the Commercial Register, Estonian law provides options for businesses to rectify their status and continue their operations. If you find yourself in this situation, don't hesitate to seek legal advice and take proactive steps towards restoration. Contact Wisor Group for legal consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions about Restoring a Company

1. How long does the process of restoring a company typically take?

6. What happens after the company is restored through the Commercial Register? 

Once the company is compliant (e.g. annual reports submitted, all data reflected) and is restored, it will regain its legal status and can resume its operations, subject to any conditions imposed during the restoration process.

Wisor Group representative Kristine Akopdžanjan speaking at the Estonian Law Students' Union's event

On 22nd Nov 2023, Wisor Group representative Kristine Akopdžanjan was invited by the Estonian Law Students' Union of her alma mater Tartu University (Faculty of Law) to make a presentation for the Union representatives and law students about her legal career which eventually led to establishing Wisor Group.

The Estonian Law Students' Union's event had two goals:

  1. To introduce the students Kristine’s education and work experience as one of the possible non-classical legal career paths, starting from legal and diplomatic education, continuing with financial and legal career in leading Scandinavian bank, as well as practicing corporate law in various firms before establishing Wisor Group.
  1. To openly discuss Wisor Group’s activity as an innovative way to practice business law, crypto regulations, banking, immigration and a few more branches of law all-in-one. 99% of the customers are from outside of Estonia and the communication is carried out mostly in English, which is rare in Estonian firms practicing law.

Company's crypto-related stories, as well as daily challenges and management strategies were also discussed at the event. The Wisor Group team is strongly convinced that there is a need to break the old conservative management rules in the legal field and focus more on making the employees happy, instead of micromanaging them (e.g. controlling where and when the team member works, etc). Based on the company's own experiment results, we can state that when you focus more on the needs of team members and give them freedom as well as responsibility, then a happier team guarantees the company more satisfied customers.  

As the interest in the company's daily activities and innovative management system was very high, it was agreed at the event that all the students have a chance to visit our office in Tallinn and will have opportunities for job shadowing and internship in our company soon.

VAT in Estonia: Changes in the Estonian Value Added Tax (VAT) Act from 1 January 2024

From 1 January 2024, the standard rate of VAT in Estonia is 22% instead of the previously applicable 20%.

Choosing the right tax rate must be based on the time of supply of products and services:

However, there are two transitional provisions (e.g. transactions related to long-term contracts), which you can read about following the link: https://www.emta.ee/en/business-client/taxes-and-payment/value-added-tax#from-01012024

VAT in Estonia: examples of VAT rate changes

Tax and Customs Board has brought out some examples of VAT rate change related situations, which you as a business owner might be facing:

  1. I have issued an advance invoice from my company to the client in December 2023 and the invoice payment was also done in December 2023. The products were delivered to the buyer in January 2024.

What should be the VAT rate in this case? As the supply was fully generated in 2023, then it is taxed at 20% VAT rate.

  1. I sold products in 2023 with 20% VAT, but the customer returned them in 2024.

When returning products, the invoice is credited just as it was issued, thus the credit invoice has a 20% VAT rate.

  1. I issued the invoice in 2023, products were delivered and the invoice was paid in January 2024.

No supply is created from issuing an invoice alone. If both the delivery and the payment take place in 2024, the transaction is taxed at the VAT rate of 22%, and the VAT rate indicated on the invoice must also be 22%.

More examples can be seen here: https://www.emta.ee/en/business-client/taxes-and-payment/value-added-tax#examples-01012024

Everything You Need to Know About Estonian Company Liquidation

In the dynamic landscape of business, understanding the full spectrum of your company's lifecycle is essential. This includes being well-informed about the processes of company liquidation and merger. While these might not be the most appealing subjects, having a comprehensive grasp of the processes, requirements, and associated costs is crucial for effective decision-making.

In this article, we will provide a detailed exploration of Estonian company liquidation, including the recent change allowing for simple applications for deletion in the case of dormant companies, as well as the intriguing option of company liquidation via merger, especially when merging with a shareholder who is a physical person. If you are interested, feel free to visit our liquidation service page for an overview of all services.

Understanding Estonian Company Liquidation

Company liquidation is a formal process that involves winding up a business entity. In Estonia, the Commercial Code outlines the steps and requirements for a seamless transition from active operations to dissolution. Whether your company has naturally reached the end of its journey or you're considering a strategic move, understanding this process is essential.

The Standard Estonian Company Liquidation Process

  1. Shareholder Resolution: The process begins with the company's shareholders drafting a resolution to initiate liquidation. This decision necessitates shareholder approval.
  2. Appointment of a Liquidator: A liquidator, either from the management board or an external professional, is appointed to oversee the liquidation process. It is mandatory that at least one appointed liquidator is an Estonian resident. In the usual liquidation process there are generally two liquidators: one from the board and the other a consultant/lawyer from our side.
  3. Public Notice: A notice regarding the liquidation is published in the official publication Ametlikud Teadaanded and potentially on the company's website.
  4. Inventory and Valuation: A comprehensive inventory of the company's assets and liabilities is conducted, followed by their valuation. This step provides clarity on the company's financial standing.
  5. Settlement with Creditors: All outstanding debts and obligations to creditors are settled within a specified period. Creditors are given the opportunity to submit their claims.
  6. Distribution of Assets: After settling liabilities, remaining assets are distributed among shareholders based on their ownership stakes.
  7. Tax Obligations: Settling all tax obligations, including income tax and VAT, is paramount prior to the completion of the liquidation process.
  8. Submission of Final Reports: The liquidator prepares a final report, incorporating the inventory, valuation, and financial statements. This report is then submitted to the Commercial Register.
  9. Application for Deletion: Following the submission of a liquidation report, an auditor's report (if required), and other necessary documents, the company can be deleted from the Commercial Register based on the relevant application.

Notably, our team of legal professionals has ingeniously streamlined the standard liquidation process, ensuring operational efficiency and minimising administrative complexities by understanding all accounting aspects beforehand and therefore ensuring the uninterrupted flow of the whole liquidation process.

The anticipated timeline for the comprehensive company liquidation ending with final deletion is 8 months for regular liquidation and 4 months for liquidation via merger.

Our clients have to provide us with all relevant accounting documents, visit the notary once (in their home country) and then let us take care of the rest. In case all the related persons have Estonian ID cards or E-residency cards, then the whole process can be done with just digitally signing the documents prepared by us. 

Digital Application for Deletion for Dormant Companies

A notable recent change in the Estonian company liquidation process concerns dormant companies. If a company is dormant, meaning it has had no economic activity whatsoever, it is now possible to make an application (either digital or legalised) to the Commercial Register with a request for deletion. This streamlined approach aims to simplify the process for such cases, minimising administrative burdens. After submitting the relevant application to the registry it will be necessary to wait for the tax office approval regarding the deletion. After the tax office has provided the relevant approval the company will be deleted. Generally this takes between 2 weeks to 2 months to complete.

Estonian Company Liquidation via Merger with a Sole Shareholder of the Company

An intriguing alternative to traditional liquidation is to do it via merger. You may follow our company liquidation service page for the short description of the process. This process involves merging the liquidating company with the sole shareholder of the company, effectively transferring its assets, liabilities to the physical person. This option offers several advantages:

The Process of Estonian Company Liquidation via Merger with the Sole Shareholder of the Company

1. Shareholder resolution: The company's management and shareholder decide to pursue liquidation via merger with the physical person shareholder.

2. Shareholder Agreement: A notarial agreement is formulated between the company and the physical person shareholder, detailing the terms and conditions of the merger. The agreement encompasses the transfer of assets, liabilities, and ongoing responsibilities.

3. Public Notice: A notice regarding the merger is published in the official publication Ametlikud Teadaanded.

3. Valuation and Asset Transfer: Company assets and liabilities are valued in accordance with prevailing industry standards. Preparation is made for transferring assets to the physical person shareholder's entity, alongside the assumption of liabilities.

4. Formation of Accounting Documents: Essential legal documents, encompassing the merger agreement and valuation reports, are prepared and submitted to relevant authorities. Outstanding company obligations, including debts and liabilities, are settled before finalizing the merger.

5. Dissolution of Original Company: Upon successful completion of the merger, the original company undergoes formal dissolution, effectively removing its entity from records. For this the final accounting documents as well as the deletion application is submitted to the Commercial Register. Read more about the dissolution of your Estonian company.

However, reversing the process can be legally complex and requires an application to the court. In case you require a reversal of liquidation, please contact our legal advisors.

14. How can professional corporate service providers assist with the company liquidation process in Estonia? 

Experienced corporate service providers can guide you through the intricate process, ensuring compliance with legal requirements, accurate valuations, and a smoother overall transition.
