Estonian Endeavors: Business Updates & Insights with Richi

Hey there, savvy entrepreneurs and dreamers! It's Richi Fox, zooming in with insights that are lighting up the business world. You've probably heard whispers or outright exclamations about Estonia’s super cool, super accessible approach to business. Well, it’s all true!

While not exactly brand new, the buzz hasn't died down since February 2023 when Estonia embraced a daring, pocket-happy policy: launching your own company with a share capital of, believe it or not, €0.01! This move wasn't just a one-time firework but an ongoing revolution, and oh my, the queries and wonder it’s been raking in! Everyone's eager to figure out the sweet spot for their share amount and the ABCs that tag along. Ready to dive in? Let’s go!

OÜ: Your Business BFF:

Here’s the lowdown on the Osaühing (OÜ for the cool kids), Estonia's flavor of a private limited company. Picture a superhero-like business structure that keeps your personal treasures separate from your company's boo-boos. Here’s the kicker: since this change in 2023, when setting up shop, you need to give a digital nod to your share capital (yes, even if it’s just the price of a gumdrop) right off the bat. Starting with transparency? That’s how Estonia rolls!

Say Bye to "Later" – It’s Now O’Clock:

Gone are the days of the "I'll pay you later" vibe with your share capital. The script now reads: every shareholder clicks "Yes!" to their share capital from the get-go. It’s like an honesty pact right from the starting line.

Picking Your Perfect Share Pie:

Now, for the puzzle keeping everyone on their toes: "What’s the golden number for my share capital?" There’s no copy-paste answer here. It’s like picking an outfit that matches your style and the occasion, or in this case, your business goals and strategy. Sure, €0.01 sounds like a dream, but don’t forget to keep an eye on the road ahead — your future expenses and those sneaky surprise costs. Heads up, though: if your capital doesn’t hit €2,500 and cloudy days roll in, you might need to cough up the rest. So, smart planning wins the race!

Cash Transfer, the Smart Way:

Decided on your magic share number? Time for action! Move that money into your company’s piggy bank. Pay it all or slice it up — your call! Just pen down "Osakapitali sissemakse (Your Company Name OÜ)" with each transaction. It’s like saying, “Remember this smart move!”

Tax Reporting, Richi-Style: Smooth and Smart!

Keep those tax blues at bay by declaring your share capital on Annex 7 of form TSD. It’s your key to a breezy, tax-exempt future. If sorting papers isn’t your jam, eFinance is your knight in shining armour. A little nod from you, and they’ll slay the tax dragon on your behalf.
