General Information

The registration procedure takes place before the Commercial Register. In the case of companies the entry into the Commercial Register is just one of the several stages of the entire incorporation process. The latter also includes conclusion of Articles of Association (adoption of By-Laws or other depending on the company type), as well as election of persons to manage and represent the company. In the case of companies with share capital payment of the subscribed shares should also be effected prior to filing for registration.

A set of documents is to be prepared for the purposes of the registration and depending on the type of the company some additional steps are also to be taken, such as payment of the capital via an accumulation bank account (unless shareholders are making in-kind contributions), notarization of some of the documents (for example, the Articles of Partnership in the case of a General Partnership or the consent of the director in the case of an LLC), payment of the state fee due for the registration, etc.

A standard form application (of Group A: Application forms for initial registration, re-registration and change in basic circumstances) along with the prepared documents enclosed thereto needs to be filed with the Commercial Register for the purposes of the registration. The application may be filed either on paper or electronically (via the Internet) by being signed with an electronic signature – including by a lawyer authorized for such purpose.
