Company registration

The Company Registration Authority registers public limited companies, limited liability companies, corporate foundations, branches, savings banks, and mutual insurance companies.
As of 1 January 2008, the Authority also registers other corporate entities, such as partnerships, partnership companies limited by guarantee where all the partners are PLC’s or LLC’s or similar form of incorporation.

The Authority registers all new registrations regarding the above company forms, and all changes to existing companies.
The Authority’s duty is to make sure that companies comply with all rules related to their form of incorporation, such as submitting annual accounts.
When companies do not comply with the rules, the Authority can have a company stricken from the Company Register.
The Authority also reads through and performs checks on all annual accounts submitted (after 1 January 2008 these are called annual statements).

Legistation regarding taxation, duties and VAT, is the responsibility of TAKS, the Tax and Customs Authority.
In the box on the right hand side of this page you can find information on how to register your company with the Company Registration Authority. You can choose between starting, changing, or ending your company.
