Register a hotel in Estonia 

In order to open a hotel in Estonia any investor is required to incorporate the business under one of the legal entities available under the Estonian legislation. In order to do so, it is required to propose and register a company name, a process which can be completed at the Commercial Registry, where persons who want to establish a company can verify various aspects of the procedure. 
The following step is to choose a legal entity under which the accommodation unit can carry out its operations. Entrepreneurs can incorporate their company under the next business forms
public limited company;
general partnership;
sole proprietorship;
limited partnership. 
Under the local legislation, businessmen are not required to register for social insurance taxes, as this process is done through an automatic scheme, which receives information on this matter from the Tax and Customs Board; still, new companies have to register for Value Added Tax (VAT) purposes, payable at the Tax and Customs Board; our Estonian company formation agents can assist entrepreneurs with the registration at the local authorities. 


Licenses for an accommodation unit in Estonia 

When opening a company established as an accommodation unit in Estonia, one of the main steps related to its incorporation is the process of receiving licenses in accordance with the hotel classification system available here. The main authorities regulating the industry are the Consumer Protection Board, the Rescue Board and the Health Protection Inspectorate.
