How to register a company in Latvia.

Please see our short video on the fastest ways of company formation in Latvia. In order to compare the available types of business registration, we suggest that you familiarize yourself with this article in our blog.

Despite the fact that a Limited liability company (SIA, an abbreviation for “Sabiedrība ar ierobežotu atbildību”) is the most widespread enterprise type in Latvia, other forms of company formation may be more suitable for certain types of commercial operations. Contact our experts for advice on the most suitable form of incorporation for your business in Latvia.

The process of company formation in Latvia requires no personal presence of the customer at any stage of the process, which consists of the following steps:


Registration Application

You contact us and place an application for registration

Documents to be signed

We send the documents to your e-mail. You print those, have those signed and send back to us.

Temporary account

We open a temporary bank account for you to transfer the equity capital (in case the company being incorporated has an equity capital of less than 2800€, this step may be skipped).



We submit the documents to the Register and complete the incorporation. Should this be required, we also apply for a VAT number.

Permanent account

You open a permanent bank account. For that purpose, you presence at on of the bank’s branch offices would be preferable, through currently bank forms may still be notarized and send by mail.


How to purchase a ready-made company in Latvia

For customers willing to purchase a company with a track record and a considerable span of time since incorporation, we offer different companies from our personal portfolio. Purchasing a ready-made company in Latvia, you get a company with good history and the opportunity to register it in favour of the new owner within a single day.

The procedure of buying a ready-made company in Latvia depends on whether the company is reregistered in the customer’s name or our nominee services are used:

  1. In case the company is reregistered, the procedure will be essentially similar to the one used to incorporate a new company (see above);
  2. In case our nominee services are used, the company is ready for use right after our Due Diligence procedure is completed.
