Adam Rang, Communications Director at Unicount

In April 2022 Estonian e-⁠Residency programme and selected service providers launched a reimbursement campaign to financially support Ukrainian entrepreneurs, help them deal with the consequences of war, and promote the development of the Ukrainian and Estonian economies. Unicount now reimburses company registration state fee to eligible Ukrainian e-resident founders and e-⁠Residency programme is reimbursing e-resident card fees to Ukrainian entrepreneurs registering a company in Estonia through Unicount.

Reimbursements cover basic business setup fees

Unicount reimburses Estonian limited company registration state fee in the amount of 265 euros after an eligible Ukrainian e-resident has successfully registered a company through Unicount API service. Unicount will also reimburse the e-resident card application fee in the amount of up to 130 euros through submitting client details to the e-Residency programme for approval after your company has been registered.
