Some varieties of businesses will have lighter registration requirements, such as the sole trader, while others will need to fulfill more requirements.

The company registry in Latvia

The company registry in Latvia is called the Register of Enterprises of the Republic of Latvia and it is the public institution responsible for registering companies, traders, representative offices, and branches. Other types of establishments are also registered here, including mass-media associations or foundations.
The Register may be accessed by individuals who wish to know more about companies that have already been registered in the country. The basic information will include the type of company, its registered office and assigned registration number, the date of registration and other information. Individuals may obtain information about registered companies in Latvia by filling in a form and paying a fee.
One of our agents who specialize in company formation in Latvia can help you with a thorough company search as this may be relevant to a company due diligence procedure.
