Establishing and registering a business requires start-up notification forms and establishment documents, which vary depending on the business type.
Both the Trade Register and Tax Administration can be notified of a new businesses on the same start-up notification form. The start-up notification form is selected based on the business type:
Y1, limited liability company, cooperative and other organisation
Y2, general and limited partnership
Y3, private entrepreneur
A company’s establishment documents are the documents that the business partners who have chosen to engage in cooperation use to agree on the rules, operations and management of the company to be established, and on the obligations and commitments between the partners. Some of these documents, which are required to register the company or open a bank account, adhere to a fixed format. Some agreements may be fairly free in form, or even oral, but preparing detailed written agreements can prevent disputes in the long run.
