Moldova is one of the small but promising countries in Eastern Europe. The jurisdiction is actively working on reforming the economy and many other areas to fulfill the plan for European integration. Among other things, the country is intensively developing such sectors as the production of building materials and glass, agriculture, the textile industry, and alternative energy. It should also be noted that winemaking is the visiting card of the country. Therefore, registering a company in Chisinau or any other Moldovan city is advantageous due to the following advantages of the jurisdiction.

Advantages of registering a company in Moldova

The decision to buy or open a company in Moldova can be potentially beneficial because of the following advantages of the country:

  • advantageous geographic location;
  • openness to foreign capital;
  • ease of registration process, including online;
  • availability of free economic zones;
  • the ability to take advantage of the terms of double taxation agreements with many countries.

Forms of doing business in Moldova

It is possible to create a business or establish a legal presence in Moldova in one or more forms:

  • Limited Liability Company is the most popular form of business in Moldova, in which the company participants do not bear any responsibility for the investment funds. Even one person can register this company, including non-resident and legal entities. The number of shareholders cannot exceed 50. The minimum authorized capital is 5,400 Moldovan lei (about $250) for companies operating in specific sectors.
  • A joint-stock company is a form of business (usually large) designed to attract large amounts of external financing. A company can issue and offer its shares to third parties without restrictions. The liability of shareholders is limited solely to the value of their shares. The company can be founded even by one person, including a non-resident or legal entity, and the maximum number of shareholders is not limited by law. To form this type of company, a share capital of 20,000 Moldovan lei (about 1,000 USD) is required, but the amount of the share capital may be higher, which the company's scope will influence.
  • A branch is an option chosen by foreign companies to conduct the same activities in Moldova as they do abroad, but with minimal costs. A simple registration procedure is required, after which the branch can start its activities in Moldova. The parent company bears full responsibility for the activities of the branch.
  • A representative office is an alternative option for a foreign company. It receives the right to explore local markets and promote its goods/services without the right to conduct business activities in Moldova. A simplified registration procedure is required.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ. Whether it's opening bank accounts remotely or navigating the financial legalities of running an international business, these guys have got your back. A big thank you to the entire Prifinance team for their first class support and expertise.Here's to more collaborations in the future!Best,Kiryl Nest

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
