Moving a company address to Latvia (AS), Stage 1
The transfer of the registered office of a capital company from a Member State of the European Union to Latvia is understood as a cross-border reorganisation. As a result, the company continues to operate in Latvia. The reorganisation shall be carried out in two stages.
The first phase is carried out in the EU Member State from which the company is transferred. Documents shall not be provided in the Enterprise Register of the Republic of Latvia.
If the draft reorganisation agreement has been submitted to the Enterprise Register and is attached to the company registration case, but is amended - the company must re-initiate the reorganisation process by submitting the amended draft reorganisation contract to the Enterprise Register. A meeting of participants shall, not earlier than one month after the publication of the draft amended reorganisation agreement, examine the draft contract and take a decision regarding reorganisation. If the company had already issued a notice to creditors regarding the reorganisation in the official publication Latvijas Vēstnesis, the notification to creditors shall be repeated after the decision of the meeting of the members.
At the same time, it should be noted that if one of the companies involved in the reorganisation changed the name or was transformed into another type of company during the reorganisation, it should not be considered as the basis for amending the draft reorganisation agreement.
