Can I rent an office outside of Estonia for an extended period of time?

Last updated: June 03, 2021

You can, however, Xolo Leap currently only supports location independent businesses without a permanent office space in another country. So while you are allowed to rent some office space (or co-working space) abroad by Estonian law, it's better to rent only on a short-term basis (6 months maximum).

If an Estonian company rents office space in a country longer term, the local authorities in that country could claim the Estonian company has permanent residence and should start filing reports and following local compliance rules. However, if you claim there are no business operations and it's an empty space, Estonian tax authorities might claim the cost isn't justified from a business perspective and decide to tax it.
