One of the areas of activity of the law office is the registration of firms (legal entities) in Serbia, as well as the purchase of ready-made firms and the opening of bank accounts. Term of incorporation and registration of companies: 3 working days.

As an advantage, it is also the fact that all actions are explained in competent Russian.

The incorporation and registration of a company start with the preparation of the relevant articles of association of the company and may include the disclosure of the company's account, the organization of a legal address, and accounting support.

The procedure for registering a limited liability company (Serb.: "DOO"):

  • The preparatory stage of registration is choosing your future company's name in Serbia (it is required to check among existing companies).
  • Determining the value of the company's authorized capital: The minimum possible authorized capital is 1 euro.
  • Determination of the composition of the founders and the amount of each of their contributions to the company's authorized capital.
  • Preparation of powers of attorney from the founders of the company (if the founders will not be present in Serbia at the certification of the memorandum of association). A power of attorney can be certified in Russia by a notary. In Serbia, a judicial translation of such a power of attorney into Serbian is carried out.
  • Selection of an executive director (they can be a citizen of Serbia or a foreigner). We are determining the legal address of the company. If necessary, we can provide a legal address.
  • Determination of the main activity of the company and other activities. Preparation of a draft memorandum of association for the company. On the day of the receipt of the decision on registration, the seal of the company is made. In the future, a company account is opened in a bank, after which the company is registered with the tax authority and is also registered as a VAT payer. To register a company in Serbia, you need a foreign passport of the founders, a power of attorney, or the personal presence of the founder/founders.
  • In practice, it is possible to register a legal entity and open bank accounts in the presence of notarized credentials (without the presence of the founders in Serbia).
  • As a new service, we offer the opening of a branch of a Serbian company in Switzerland—in this way, the company's owner will be able to have accounts in Swiss banks legally.
