Frequently asked questions

What kind of company can I register with Unicount?

You can use Unicount online company formation service to register an Estonian limited liability company (OÜ) with a single founder, shareholder and board member (being you).

Restrictions are related to the API service provided by Estonian Business Register to company formation agents such as Unicount.

If you need to register a company with multiple shareholders and board members please follow the advice here.

How can I register a company without Estonian digital identity?

If you do not have Estonian digital identity card, Mobile-ID or Smart-ID, you can register a company by physically visiting a notary in Estonia. Here is the list of all Estonian notaries. All notaries charges the same amount of money for company formations as the prices are regulated.

If you cannot visit Estonia you have an alternative of preparing and certifying a power of attorney. It is a document that specifies who can represent you in Estonian notary and for what purpose. It will be a very detailed document to include your exact intention as a founder. If it is not in Estonian or English then probably it needs to be be translated too by a sworn translator in Estonia.

Unicount does not provide company registration service via power of attorney as we only work with online formations.

How long does it take to set up my company?

This depends on whether you have Estonian digitaly identity already or not. Receiving the e-resident card takes 6-8 weeks in most cases.

Once you have collected the card from one of the pick up locations, registering the company takes about 1-2 working days.

How can I pay for the company formation fee?

You can pay the company formation fee with your Mastercard, VISA or American Express card via Stripe or through Estonian bank links.

After your company is registered, Unicount asks for your company card information to debit recurring annual virtual office payments.

Does Unicount support companies having physical activity such as selling goods?

Unicount permits all types of legal and moral activities as a company formation agent and virtual office service provider.

This includes Amazon FBA and other dropshipping businesses having tax registrations in other countries besides Estonia.

How can I register a company with multiple shareholders?

Unicount online company formation service uses Estonian Business Register API that has a limitation of one physical person as a founder. This means that our online formation service is not suitable for everyone looking to set up a company in Estonia.

There is an alternative to register the company through the state portal and use our virtual office and contact person service. Read more here.

How do I order virtual office when registering a company via Unicount API service?

You can simply add virtual office subscription in the company formation application process. Visit this page to sign up with your existing companies and to subscribe when registering a company via Unicount is not possible. For example you have multiple shareholders or no Estonian digital ID cards.
