Business relocation to Bulgaria

The company relocation process is straightforward. Investors need to set-up a matching business structure in Bulgaria, according to the local company incorporation requirements and as per the Companies Law.
The types of companies available for incorporation in Bulgaria match the ones existing in many other countries. The most common type is the private limited liability company or the LLC. The joint stock company is suited for larger businesses that need relocation to Bulgaria while small, one-man investors can open a sole trader. 
Two initial steps for opening a company in Bulgaria are drafting the company documents and signing them in the presence of a notary and opening a corporate bank account. One of our lawyers in Bulgaria can give you complete details on how you can draw up a power of attorney if you cannot be present in the country.

Companies relocated to Bulgaria need to observe the local laws for corporate taxation, VAT registration, and reporting. The international financial reporting standards apply in the country. Each company has to file its own tax return, as consolidated ones are not permitted.
