5-Common-Investment-Mistakes-in-Estonia.pngMost of the foreign investors who are setting up their business presence on the Estonian market verify most of the aspects of the business environment before opening a company. However, in some occasions, the businessmen tend to forget several aspects that can actually improve the value of their company. Our team of Estonian company formation specialists can provide to both local and foreign entrepreneurs assistance on the most common investment mistakes, which can be avoided. 

1. Irregularities in the investment plan

A solid investment plan should be taken into consideration as many business aspects as possible, which have to be specified in a clear manner, taking into account the time dimension. The investor should establish short-term investment plans, as well as business plans set out for a long-term (which usually represents more than 5 years). 


2. Not benefiting from the agreements signed for the avoidance of double taxation 

Estonia has signed numerous treaties for the avoidance of double taxation. Foreign investors who have opened a company here can benefit from the stipulations of the treaty for the avoidance of double taxation, which can offer several tax reductions and incentives, issued in accordance with the field in which the business is carrying out its operations. 

3. The company is not using tax minimization procedures 

According to the applicable law, companies are allowed to perform tax minimization schemes, which are allowed under the rules and regulations of the Estonian law; our team of company incorporation agents can provide assistance on the most favorable tax minimization procedures applicable here. 


4. Not being familiar with the Estonian legal system 

Although companies in Estonia are required to perform any business action in accordance with the stipulations of the law, in some cases, for example- when signing a contract, the investor may not pay attention to various provisions which can become a liability for the business. 

5. Not performing company due diligence procedures 

It is crucial to find relevant information on the business partners with which the investor will sign a contract. Company due diligence refers to the measures taken by an entity, in order to verify the legal integrity of a partner.
