Ease of doing business

Estonia consistently ranks as one of the most open and ambitious economies in the world. The e-solutions offered — such as digital signatures, electronic tax claims, the e-Business Register, and the availability of public records online — provide transparency and efficiency. Estonian online services reduce bureaucracy and keep businesses globally competitive. Estonia’s R&D ecosystem and digital capabilities make the country an innovation hotspot.

e-Business Register

Estonia’s e-Business Register is an advanced and secure tool that allows entrepreneurs to register a new business online in just minutes without having to go to a notary or some other official. Since 2011, most companies have been established online using the e‑Business Register. The time associated with the registration process has fallen from 5 days to a couple of hours.

The e-Business register allows you to register a new company online, change data in the business register, file annual reports, manage the members list for political parties, or make detailed inquiries about other companies. All it takes to register an Estonian company is an ID card, Mobile-ID, or e-Residency card, and an internet connection.

The e-Residency programme allows non-Estonian citizens to also access the register and use the digital solutions when establishing a company in Estonia. The e-Business register makes the process of registering a company and submitting documents like annual reports easy and efficient for users online no matter where they are.
