If you decide to close your company in Estonia, we recommend a so-called voluntary dissolution (liquidation), which is the traditional approach.
In practice, the entire liquidation process takes 8-10 months in average. There are numerous steps involved in the process, including compiling and submitting various applications and notices to the public authorities in Estonia. Some accounting and legal assistance will be required. There are also some required timelines that can’t be compressed to shorten the period. However, the process itself is rather straightforward and doesn’t require significant effort from your side.
As a prerequisite, your company has to complete the following steps before beginning the process:
- Clear all debts and obligations (if you have none, just consider this a friendly reminder)
- If applicable, terminate its VAT payer status (we'll do it on your behalf)
There is also a requirement to appoint an official liquidator.
We're happy to assist our clients in this process if necessary, but this isn't included in our standard price. Please note that we offer this service exclusively for Xolo customers only.
Namely, we charge €499 + VAT for the assistance. It's a one-time fee, and once we enter the official process of termination, no monthly fee will be charged in parallel. But you can also find an alternative service provider who's willing to do it - you're not tied to us.
Simply let us know in advance when you'd like to initiate the process, and whether you'd like to use Xolo or somebody else.
