Ready-made company in Latvia

Ready-made companies, seasoned companies, or aged companies refer to LLCs or partnerships that have not been active.

Benefits of aged companies

  • Saving time is one benefit of a ready-made firm. The incorporation procedure takes time, and quicker enrollment is more expensive due to greater state taxes. Changing the owner of an existing business is quicker.
  • Persistence of business. Before beginning a relationship, certain partners or financial institutions could take the registration date into account. Prospective customers are more likely to trust a well-known company that is actively promoted.
  • The background of your company. It boosts credibility and improves the company’s reputation with time.
  • Require a bank loan. In the case of demonstrating the incorporation history, it could be simpler.

Procedure of buying a business

It takes several days. The Company Registry requires 4 working days for enrollment.

  • Each director (and owner, if they are separate people) must have a valid passport or ID card. The contract for the sale-purchase of business shares must also be notarized.
  • The new corporate director’s signature specimen has been notarized.
  • After you place an order and upload a scan of your passport, we will fill out the relevant paperwork with your personal details, including the stock purchase agreement and your sample signature, and send it along with clear instructions so you can read and sign it.

The corporate tax

Comprehending the tax laws of this European nation is essential when beginning a business in Latvia.

The taxable income that a taxpayer receives during a taxation period is what the corporate income tax is levied on. Corporate financial revenue that has been legally adjusted serves as the tax base. The adjustments are primarily used to guarantee that income exceeds costs that are not subject to taxation (such as those not directly connected to business activity) or to lower income by a predetermined amount in cases where tax relief is provided for by law.

The following companies pay corporate income taxes:

  • Foreign companies, business entities, natural persons, permanent overseas subsidiaries of non-resident are obligated with an income tax rate of 20%
  • organizations and institutions supported by the state budget or local budgets that receive money from economic activity.

Personal income tax is paid by individual businesses, and based on revenue, the tax rate can range from 20% to 31.4%.

Added-value tax (VAT)

The whole European Union, including Latvia, is subject to the VAT, which is a consumption tax. On products and services bought and sold for use or consumption, the aforementioned tax is imposed. Since the end user is answerable for paying this tax that is included into the cost of a commodity or service, it is seen as an indirect tax. According to Latvia’s “Value Added Tax Law,” the standard tax rate is now 21%, although the reduced rate can range from 12% to 0% depending on the item or service.

The VAT is a general tax since it is levied indirectly on businesses and is appropriate for consumption with few legal exceptions. The EU has launched stringent laws for applying the VAT in light of the terms of competition.
